Basic Combed Cotton, Kona Cotton, Cotton Poplin, Cotton Silk and Linen Cotton:
For best results, we recommend washing these fabrics with phosphate free detergent in cool or warm water using a gentle or delicate machine cycle. We also suggest washing before use.
Some fading as a result of cleaning is typical for these fabrics. This is most notable on darker shades. Front loading washers contribute to color loss due to the increased tumbling action during cleaning. Fading can be minimized through use of cool wash settings and gentle wash cycles.
Tumble dry on a low temperature or permanent press setting and remove promptly.
Hand wash gently with phosphate free detergent in cool or warm water and air dry.
Silk Crepe de Chine and Heavy Cotton Twill:
Dry clean only. We do not recommend dry cleaning with the solvent perchloroethylene which is commonly known as "perc". We suggest using GreenEarth Cleaning facilities.
Wash separately in cool or warm water using a gentle machine cycle. Machine dry using a low temperature or permanent press setting and remove promptly to avoid wrinkles.
We recommend ironing our 100% cotton fabrics using standard settings for cotton. Steam may be used to remove wrinkles.
High temperature settings may cause discoloration or crushing of linen and silk and we recommend use of synthetic settings and a light touch for these fabric types. We also recommend that you iron the reverse side of the fabric for best results.
Mineral deposits in the iron and spraying fabric with a water bottle may cause unexpected staining or marking and should be avoided.
If required, use an iron with a light touch on a synthetic setting only. Higher iron temperatures may result in color transfer and, in extreme cases, melting of fabric.
