Our hand-woven towels are special we know that, and we want them to stay that way for you. If you follow our care advice, then your towel will last you for years to come. In fact, the more you wash them the softer and more absorbent they become.
First Time Soak
Before you start using your towels we suggest you do a one-time soak in cold water for 12-24 hours. After soaking you can let the towel dry naturally for best results.
This process will “train” the organic fibres to absorb and release moisture. This will ensure your beautifully crafted towel is as absorbent as it can be.
Please note that soaking is recommended for organic cotton only.
Machine wash gently at 30 degrees.
Take care to ensure you do not wash with items that have hooks, zips or anything sharp attached to them.
Do not use fabric conditioner – it will prevent the towel from being as absorbent as it can be.
No bleach - for a natural stain remover try adding baking soda and a little white vinegar to your wash.
For best results leave to dry naturally.
You can tumble-dry on a cool heat setting but be careful not to over dry as this can damage the organic cotton fibres.
Fringes and Tassels
Occasionally tassel's or fringes can unravel, however re-tying is easy. There are two types of hand tied tasseled finishes on our towels, the tie fringe and the twisted tie fringe.
For tie fringes simply gather all the loose threads together and tie them back into a simple knot.
To re-tie twisted tie fringes follow these simple instructions;
Divide the loose threads into two equal sections
Twist each section individually in a clockwise direction through to the ends
Twist each twisted section in an anti-clockwise direction around each other
Once you reach the end then tie a knot
If a pull occurs on any of your flat woven or peshtamel towels or blankets they should not be snipped. From the pull with a little bit of patience you can follow the thread and pull it back through the towel.
If a pull occurs in any of your loop towels then you can simply snip the pull with pair of scissors.
