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 half 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.
