Care Instructions
Washing natural dyed fabrics requires gentle handling to avoid colour fading or bleeding. Start by hand washing the fabric in cold water using a mild detergent and avoiding harsh chemicals. Avoid wringing the fabric and instead gently squeeze out excess water. Rinse thoroughly in cold water and then lay flat to air dry. Avoid exposing the fabric to direct sunlight or high heat, as this can cause further fading or damage to the fabric. For additional advice, please contact us.
