Care and considerations:
Spot clean or hand wash cold with gentle ph-neutral detergent. Take care not to agitate too much as the front panel will felt. Lay flat to dry, do not machine dry. Storing in the sunshine might shift the color as the dyeing process relies on the sun.
Due to the organic process of hand weaving, there may be inconsistencies in the pattern that make each piece unique and one of a kind. Pieces made with natural dyes have a tendency to fade over time.
