How to care for your scarf

All products are crafted from natural materials and sustainable dyes. They are 100% biodegradable/compostable.  Alternatively here are a few tips in preserving your textile:

Colour Fading

Natural dyes are subject to fading over time.  Please keep textiles out of direct sunlight whereby exposed for extended periods of time.  Fading may also occur on fold lines and if your textile is stored for long periods of time in unfavourable conditions (heat, cold, damp).  If unpleasant fading occurs, you may inquire about re-dyeing.

Washing

Do not wash it often and do not dry clean.  Hand washing in tepid water is recommended.   For cotton scarves machine washing on a delicate cycle is permitted.  Use cold water and a gentle detergent.  Lay flat to dry.  A gentle pressing or steaming is suggested.  If using an iron, pay attention to your heat setting.  Carefully press moving the iron from centre toward one edge, and then centre toward the other edge.  Move all the way up the cloth doing this.  For optimal benefits, press the other side as well.

Snags

Snags may happen (especially if you wear accessories that are prone to catching) - DO NOT cut snags.  Every thread has its place in the cloth and will go back.  Follow the thread's path and gently guide it back into place.

Abrasion

Constant agitation from rough surfaces may damage the scarf.  It is suggested that you change the folding of your scarf often to avoid increased wear on any one area.
