Wash Care

Washing Instructions

  1. Hand Wash or Machine Wash on Gentle Cycle: Use cold water to prevent shrinking and fading. 
  2. Use Mild Detergent: Opt for a gentle, eco-friendly detergent to avoid harsh chemicals that can damage the fabric.
  3. Avoid Bleach: Bleach can weaken the fibers and alter the color of your garments.

Drying Instructions

  1. Air Dry: Lay your garments flat on a clean, dry towel or hang them to dry naturally. This helps maintain their shape and prevent fabric stress.
  2. Avoid Direct Sunlight: Prolonged exposure to direct sunlight can cause colors to fade.

Ironing and Steaming

  1. Iron on Low Heat: If ironing is necessary, use a low heat setting. For best results, place a cloth between the iron and the garment.
  2. Steam Instead of Ironing: Steaming is a gentler alternative that helps remove wrinkles without direct contact, preserving the fabric's integrity.

Storing Your Garments

  1. Store in a Cool, Dry Place: Ensure that your storage area is free from dampness and direct sunlight.
  2. Use Padded Hangers for Dresses and Coats: This helps maintain their shape and prevents shoulder dents.

Natural Dyes

  • Wash this garment separately.
  • Avoid direct sunlight exposure to prevent color variation.
  • Do not bleach.
  • Iron or steam with warm heat.
  • Hand wash separately.


Color bleeding is normal in naturally dyed garments during the initial washes. Over time, the colors will stabilize. The fading and bleeding of natural dyes result in graceful, unique fades as time passes.

Dry Clean Only

If a care label specifies "dry clean only," it indicates that the garment is not suitable for washing at home and requires professional cleaning. Follow these steps to ensure proper care:

  1. Clean the garment only when absolutely necessary.
  2. Look for an environmentally friendly dry cleaner.
  3. Confirm that the cleaner does not use perchloroethylene (perc). Perc is a common solvent used in dry cleaning, known for its toxicity to humans and the environment, and its non-biodegradability.
  4. Decline the use of plastic covers.

Machine Wash

Machine washing is a convenient way to clean many garments quickly, but it can impact both your clothes and the environment if not done properly.

  1. Wait until you have a full load of clothing to wash.

  2. Use the cold water setting, which reduces energy consumption and helps preserve garment fibers and colors.

  3. Choose a normal or delicate setting based on the fabric's needs.

  4. Opt for a high spin cycle to maximize water removal before drying.

  5. Use a natural, biodegradable detergent that is free of artificial fragrances, bleach, optical brighteners, sulfates, and dioxane, as these can be harmful to both you and the environment. Follow the detergent container instructions for the correct water-to-detergent ratio.

Recommended detergent: Kind Laundry

Minimum Washing

To care for your clothing and the environment, minimizing laundry is key. Natural fibers inherently possess antibacterial properties, requiring less frequent washing than you might expect.

  1. Spot clean as necessary: Address small marks, stains, or odorous areas by washing only the affected zones in the sink with a natural, biodegradable detergent.

  2. Air out garments for a quick refresh: After wearing, hang clothes outside to allow airflow and benefit from their natural cleaning abilities.



Cashmere shawls are a luxurious and timeless fashion accessory, prized for their softness, warmth, and elegance. To keep your cashmere shawls looking their best, it is important to follow a few simple care instructions:

  1. Wash your cashmere shawls by hand: Cashmere is a delicate fabric, so it is best to wash your shawls by hand to avoid damaging the fibers. Fill a sink or basin with lukewarm water and a mild, gentle detergent, and gently scrub the shawl to remove any dirt or stains. Rinse the shawl thoroughly in cold water, and then gently squeeze out any excess water.

  2. Avoid wringing or twisting the fabric: To avoid damaging the fibers or the shape of the shawl, be sure to gently squeeze out any excess water, rather than wringing or twisting the shawl.

  3. Dry your shawls gently: To dry your cashmere shawls, gently roll them in a clean, dry towel to remove any excess water. Then, lay the shawl flat on a clean, dry towel and reshape it to its original form. Avoid hanging your shawls up to dry, as this can cause the fibers to stretch or lose their shape. Instead, allow the shawl to air dry on a flat surface.

  4. Avoid exposing your shawls to direct heat or sunlight: Heat and sunlight can cause cashmere fibers to shrink or fade, so it is best to avoid exposing your shawls to these elements. Store your shawls in a cool, dry place, and avoid hanging them in direct sunlight.
