Clothing Care

We’ve Put Together A Guide To Help You Care For Our Unique Bohemian Clothing
Our bohemian garments are made by a long chain of skilled and dedicated workers, literally passing from hand to hand. They are made in small batches meaning; our garments are not mass produced. They may not be perfect, but rather, are each hand-produced creations with all the inconsistencies and interest that this process brings. The garments are alive, the natural fabrics breathe and fall beautifully, each piece flattering, comfortable and unique.
 
Less washing is better for the environment and for your clothing
 
This guide has been put together to help you launder your bohemian styles to ensure they last. Before just assuming everything needs washing, check for stains and instead air them by simply hanging them out in a shady spot. This process will freshen clothing that is not necessarily ‘clean’ but also not really dirty. This guide will teach you clothing care practices that are better for the environment and your clothing.
 
How to Care For Your Bohemian Clothing

CHECK THE CARE TAG BEFORE YOU LAUNDER YOUR CLOTHING

Ideally, hand-washing is best for all our clothing. If you are unsure, check the tag inside to see if it should be hand-washed or machine washed and what the water temperature should be. If you do machine wash, never use a regular setting and instead use the delicate setting, placing particularly delicate pieces in a lingerie wash bag. Hand wash is always the most gentle and sustainable clothing care option which we recommend for most of our items.

ALWAYS WASH YOUR CLOTHING TOGETHER WITH SIMILAR COLORS

Keep your blues with blues, whites with whites, reds with reds and black by itself. Always assume some surface dye may come out of these garments, particularly in the first few washes. Washing in color families means the garments help each other stay fresh and vibrant. Always air dry our clothing in a shady spot. We recommend against using a dryer to avoid shrinkage, damage, and lessen energy usage.

USE A QUALITY LAUNDRY DETERGENT

Always use quality washing products, never harsh bleaches or stain removers. White cotton garments are a exception if they become stained or yellow which require specific clothing care. For simple, sturdy items (not lacy or delicate) use whiteners according to the instructions. Expect that heavily saturated colors such as deep greens and blues may exude some excess dye. Be careful about wearing such colors with light clothing and underwear, especially on a hot day.

AIR OUT CLOTHING TO REFRESH THEM

Some clothes may rarely need a wash. Instead, our clothing care guide recommends you air them by hanging them out in a shady spot for a few hours. This process will freshen clothing that is not necessarily ‘clean’ but also not really dirty. Less washing is better for the environment and for your clothing. Our clothes aren‘t fragile, but you do need to understand their distinctive qualities and treat them with respect. Don’t forget, this is boho clothing. A few imperfections add to the charm and individuality of the garment.
