- Dry in the shade.

All our products are made with the best quality fabrics, natural dyes and natural leaves. Specs, creases, dots and stripes are all part of the expected results.
Each piece was produced with much love, in a process that takes up to three days, mordanting, preparing the dyes out of powdered barks, dyeing and printing with foraged leafs, after which the product is washed and ironed.
Most pieces are left unhemmed on purpose, for a free flow and to maintain a breeziness to the fabric that is lost whem hemmed. The fabric may fray one or two strands which can be pulled out gently.
Some scarves are hemmed with a rolled hem, either with gold thread or white. This is mentioned in the product description.
