Our 100% cotton or silk fabrics have been handwoven with care. Small slubs and weaving irregularities add to the charm of these textiles. To insure long lasting quality, give our fabrics the following care:
Cottons: hand wash in lukewarm water with a mild soap, use no bleach. Dissolve the detergent in water before adding the fabric or product. Do not soak! Excess dye may rinse out with the first wash, therefore it is wise to wash the product separately the first time. Some shrinkage may occur in the first wash.
Silks: all silks may be dry cleaned. Solid color silks may be handwashed in lukewarm water with a mild detergent. Use no soap or bleach. Please note that iridescents/changeants are NOT solids. Iron while still damp.
Please note that our fabrics are mostly dyed and woven by hand. Consequently, we advise that all curtains are lined to avoid fading. Our linen series Flanders can be safely used as sheers as it has a high lightfast rating.
It is exceedingly difficult to bring the actual colors of our products to you via the internet. Not only is each production slightly different in color, the light and surroundings also influence how one perceives color. Beyond that, there are many different computers and screens. There are so many variables, we cannot guarantee that the color you see on the screen is the color we will deliver.
