Care Instructions

Almost all our products are 100% cotton. Few are cotton blends with the balance being another type of easy-care fiber. Cotton washes well and can be washed in a washing machine. Follow these instructions and you will enjoy your purchase for many years.

Washing: When washing the first time, wash each garment on a gentle cycle, full load setting using cold water and a mild detergent. A handful of salt or ¼ cup vinegar added to the first wash will help set the dye. Turn your clothes inside out to protect the outer side when washing.

Garments are pre-shrunk. Our hand printed and hand tie dyed fabrics have been washed, sometimes multiple times, as part of the printing process. The fabric will not shrink.

Drying: Do not dry in a dryer. Line dry out of direct sun. Ironing is not necessary for a natural cotton look.
