Please note, as this fabric is organic, there may be minor irregularities to the weave, and as organic fabrics are finished in a different way, there may be marks to the surface that should wash off. There can be slight differences between batches owing to the natural organic fibre and this can affect colouration and finish, though we endeauvour to let you know of any major differences. We recommend that you prewash this fabric before cutting in case of any minor shrinkage due to the finishing processes used. Wash on a gentle or delicate cycle such as 30˚, or hand wash where possible with mild detergent. Line dry and use minimal tumble drying. Iron on a cool silk setting.
Production notes: Raw material source is China using organic growing methods. The yarns are Oeko-Tex Standard 100 certified and spun in China. The manufacturing uses a viscose process so chemicals are involved and any bleaching will probably have used the oxy or hydrogen peroxide methods, though this is within a closed loop system. The finished fabric is GOTS-certified.
