How should I care for my fabric?

Washing

We recommend that all fabrics, that can be washed, are separated into light or dark colours and washed at 30 degrees (depending on the care instructions). For best results, select a non-biological detergent containing no optical whiteners, bleaching agents or enzymes that can cause colours to fade or become patchy and can also damage fabrics. When hand washing, do not place the detergent directly onto the laundry, but ensure liquids are dispersed and powders completely dissolved before immersing the items to be washed.

Drying

Line drying is ideal for leaving your laundry outdoor-fresh and almost crease-free…but using a tumble dryer at the correct setting also gives good results. When using a tumble dryer, do not over dry laundry and remove it promptly to reduce creasing. Smooth out and reshape everything, paying particular attention to borders and hems on napkins and table cloths, then fold carefully.

Ironing

Washing and drying fabrics correctly will help eliminate creasing and make ironing easier. Natural fibres crease more when new, but with time the fabric softens and this will reduce. For best results, iron table cloths whilst still slightly damp, using a steam iron.  In the event that fabrics have become bone-dry, we advise re-damping with a water spray before.

Fading

Some degree of fading of colour will occur naturally over time.

Shrinkage

All natural fibres will shrink. However, washing or drying fabrics at excessively hot temperatures will cause more shrinkage than usual.

Fabric care symbols

All fabrics carry care instruction labels showing the universal symbols. Please refer to these labels and always follow the care instructions given.

Any bespoke products would have individual care requirements, this may include dry cleaning.
