We recommend using cold water and hand washing individually. If you choose to machine wash, wash alone on a delicate cycle for best results. For a longer life and color, we recommend using a mild or natural detergent like ECOS or Seventh Generation. Please avoid drying this garment in the dryer, as this may fade the color. It may also shrink the clothing and/or create small holes. Hang to dry or lay flat. Please refrain from dry cleaning as the chemicals used could ruin the garment altogether. Ironing article on low heat is preferred. Also, in certain cases, we do offer re-dying of your garment with a small fee. Contact for more information.
