How to take care of your linen garments
Linen is hard-wearing and will serve you for many years – if treated properly. As the oldest known textile in the world, it comes from the flax plant, so as a natural fabric, we should treat it as naturally as possible. To ensure the maximum life of your linen garments, please follow our washing istructions carefully:
- Hand or machine wash.
- Use lukewarm water and mild detergent – machine wash at 30°.
- Linen loves water and needs to move freely so try not to overload your washing machine.
- If you hand wash linen – do not ring it or twist it as this can result in permanent creasing and losing shape.
- Do not leave your clothes in water for too long as wooden or coconut shell buttons can fade or crack.
- Never use bleach, which can yellow white linen.
- Do not dry clean linen.
- To dry, hang or lay flat and re-shape as necessary.
- If you hang it to dry, take care as pegs may cause bumps in the fabric.
- When dry, just shake it out and it’s ready to wear
- Iron while still damp – don’t use too much pressure. You can use a steam iron.
- Iron dark linen on the reverse side.
