Our fabrics can be washed at home on a gentle or delicate cycle in cold water with mild detergent. Hang to dry for best results and iron on the back of print for wrinkles.

Our fabrics are hand-printed using environmentally-friendly inks. Although the inks are heat-set for longevity, they are not guaranteed against wear or color fading.

Variations in yardage may occur due to the nature of hand-printing.
