We use several different fabrics.
This fabric is hard wearing and can actually withstand a hot wash, dry cleaning and tumble drying. We label asking for Cold Wash and Line Dry for environmental reasons, and your linen will also last longer. Washing will soften this fabric and make it even nicer over time and linen is quite dirt resistant so is easily cleaned.
100% European Fabric:
Used for: Noel Blouse, Teddy Skirt, Larry Dress Blue
We do not currently have sewn on care labels for these garments and only handwritten labels asking for Cold Wash, Line Dry and Warm / Hot Iron. As with the 100% linen, hot wash (up to 60 C) is possible as is tumble drying but, again, this will shorten the lifespan of your garment.
Used for: Stripey Jack Blouse, Larry Dress Grey
With all fabrics, wash whites and colours separately and avoid bleach as it weakens fibres and can damage colours. Tumble drying also shortens the lifespan of your garment and can lead to permanent creases so is best avoided if possible. Ironing garments whilst still a little damp will get your crispest look.
