fabric & care

What colour is it?

We try to keep the colour in image as close to the real one and there is usually almost no difference between the colour on your screen and the actual garment. However colour viewing differs in various gadget screens. Occasionally, in naturally dyed or hand crafted garments, the colour may slightly vary. This is not an error or poor quality but simply a testament to the hand process.

Will the product look the same as the images on the website?

Yes, we work very hard to ensure the imagery matches the product in reality. What you see will also depend on the gadget at hand and its display settings but we can assure you that the chances of there being a discrepancy is negligible.

Any special care instructions for ironing?

Always iron inside out. The heat or temperature of the iron depends on the fabric at hand. We’ve detailed these specifics in our fabric care guide.

Will the garment shrink post wash?

While all our fabrics are prewashed and pre-shrunk, a small amount of shrinking is still possible. We recommend washing with cold water as heat may shrink a natural fabric.

Which fabrics do you use?

We work with a variety of fabrics including but not limited to handspun and handwoven cotton, handwoven cotton, organic cotton, linen, handwoven linen, organic linen, handspun and tencel modal.

customisation

Do you customize sizes?
