To keep our fabrics looking their best it recommended to launder as is necessary. Leaving it longer than necessary may cause discolouration of the design and a tendency to wash at a high heat!. We recommend that all fabrics, that can be washed, are separated into light or dark colours and washed at 30-40 degrees (depending on the care instructions - see below). 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.


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 towels and table cloths, then fold carefully.


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.


Throws are labelled with precise care information. The importance of always following these instructions cannot be overstated as washing or drying such items incorrectly or at too high a temperature will cause damage and shrinkage. 


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


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