Wash-care is very important for any natural fabrics. If maintained well, we can use the fabric till the end of its life it’s intended to be made. Pls check out some common FAQ’s and feel free to reach out with any other questions you might have.

Can we use regular detergent ?

Absolutely No. Regular detergents are harmful to not only for the clothes you buy here, but also to any clothes you own. You might have to switch to mild detergent or soap that doesn’t contain any chemicals or fragrances. The fabric needs to be taken care with soap nuts / Sea salt(if you plan to go full old school) + You can add any essential oil for fragrance.

If not, there are some alternatives you can check out on amazon which I am personally using these days. Link

What is the wash-cycle?

We recommend a machine wash on delicate cycle in cold water, or hand wash in cold water. Re-shape while wet and hang or lay flat to dry to prevent shrinking. Remove the product immediately from the washing machine to prevent creasing. If using a dryer, we recommend to use Air cycle. Using high heat on organic cotton can cause shrinkage.

How much does natural cotton shrink?

Most of the Shrinkage is in the first two washes. So we washed the fabric twice before making a product. However the fabric can shrink up to 5-10% of its size when exposed to high temperatures. (So, just mild heat is recommended for wash/Iron)

How to prevent shrinkage of cotton?

Cotton will stretch when it is wet and shrink when it dries, so always make sure to re-shape the material after it is washed. This will ensure a long-lasting life.

How durable is your fabric?

Our cotton is not exposed to the weakening, harsh chemicals that commercially grown cotton is, therefore it will last many years, with proper care. So are the linen and hemp fabrics.

Will bleach harm the fabric?

Yes, bleach is harmful to our cotton, and we recommend not using it on natural cotton products. Bleach will fade the cotton from its natural color and weaken the fiber strength, reducing its durability.

Can you use an iron ?

Yes, it’s perfectly safe to iron natural cotton. The best way to do this is by using a warm temperature iron (not hot), as smoothing out the wrinkles will be easier. You may notice that the cotton creases very easily. This is normal. Unlike conventional cotton, the material isn’t treated with anti-wrinkle chemicals.

Can you dry clean natural cotton?

No, we recommend not dry cleaning natural cotton. The high heat will cause the material to shrink, and the chemical solvent (tetrachloroethylene...yuck) in dry-cleaning can weaken the fiber strength. Dry cleaning is most often used for synthetic materials that can't be washed in water, but natural cotton can absolutely be washed!

Can you use a clothes steamer on cotton?

No, we recommend not using a clothes steamer on cotton. The high heat will cause the material to shrink.
