Care Guide

Taking care of your garments is crucial for several reasons that contribute to their longevity, appearance, and sustainability. Proper garment care not only saves you money in the long run but also helps to reduce your environmental footprint.

Water Temperature

Both linen and cotton have a tendency to shrink, especially when exposed to hot water. To prevent this, always use cold water when washing these fabrics. Cold water helps preserve the fibres and minimizes the risk of shrinkage

Detergent Selection

When washing linen, it's recommended to use a mild detergent. Harsh detergents can weaken fibres and cause fading over time. Use a detergent that is suitable for delicate fabrics to ensure gentle cleaning.

Hand Wash Only

Hand washing is the preferred method for cleaning our garments. Avoid using a washing machine, as the agitation and spinning can lead to excessive wear and potential damage to intricate embroidery. Gently hand wash the garments.

Fabric Softener and Bleach

Do not use fabric softener on our clothing, as it can affect the natural texture and absorbency of the fabric. Additionally, avoid using bleach, even if the garment is white. Bleach can weaken the fibres and cause discoloration or damage

Avoid Wringing

The structure of our garments makes them more delicate and susceptible to damage when over-handled. Avoid wringing out the garment, as this can lead to stretching, distortion, and increased wear. Instead, gently press out excess water without twisting or wringing.


After washing linen and cotton garments, it's crucial to air dry them properly. Avoid using hangers, as they can leave unsightly marks on the fabric, unless they are padded. Instead, lay the garment flat on a clean towel or use a drying rack. Placing the garment on a towel helps absorb excess moisture and promotes even drying.

Sun Drying

While air drying, ensure that the garments are not exposed to direct sunlight, especially for dark-coloured items. The sun's rays can cause dark colours to fade over time. To keep your colours looking fresh, always dry your clothing in the shade or indoors.

Restoring Size

If you find that your garment has shrunk slightly after washing, there's a simple technique to help restore its original size. Steam the garment by using a garment steamer or hanging it in a steam-filled bathroom. Start steaming from the midsection and gently pull downward. This will help relax the fibres and allow the fabric to stretch back to its original dimensions.
