KHADI COTTON STRIPED APPAREL
This fabric is made up of 100% Khadi Cotton. It was handwoven by our artisan partners in India. We recommend dry cleaning or hand washing your garment. If you choose to hand wash your garment, please do so in cold water with ecological or all natural laundry products. You can also wash your garment (inside out) in the washing machine on a cold, delicate cycle without any other garments, however, we recommend hand washing to prolong its life. Hang dry or flat lay your garment indoors or in the shade to dry. Iron or steam your garment with distilled water to remove wrinkles as needed. You may also add a commercial fabric softener to your preferred method of washing to maintain the softness of the fabric.
If you find any subtle snags or variations in your garment, it is because our fabric is hand woven and entirely handmade from start to finish. This is normal.

Your naturally dyed or woven garment is handmade in Guatemala. Keep in mind, your garment was constructed from the earth, meaning no synthetic chemicals were used. This makes the piece high quality, honestly designed, wonderfully unique and one-of-a-kind. Take extra special care while wearing and washing to maintain the beautiful colors and longevity of your garment. Note that your garment will arrive pre-washed and will not shrink.
Prolong your garments life by gently hand washing it in cold water with a neutral unscented soap. Do not put the garment in direct contact with the soap. Instead, make the water soapy and give it a swirl wash. After this step, rinse the garment with clean, cold water to finish. Gently press your garment rather than ringing it out. Hang dry or flat lay your garment indoors or in the shade. Avoid direct sunlight as it can cause fading.
Using a pH neutral cleanser is very important since our naturally dyed garments are susceptible to hue change when in contact with highly acidic substances (soda, vinegar, coffee, lemon juice, white wine, etc). If you do run into a stain issue with your garment, spot treat it with neutral unscented soap and water.
You can also have your garment dry cleaned as long as it is at an EcoCleaner. These establishments are becoming more popular and they are environmentally conscious with their cleaning practices.

We cannot be responsible for the garment having any issues after washing in a washing machine. Some machines can be dirty, thus leaving fade marks and oil stains on the garment. Hand washing is our number one recommendation.
If you would like to remove any wrinkles in your garment, you may use a steamer but we suggest using distilled water and being extra careful while steaming. If you store your garment hanging up, the wrinkles will come out naturally.
