This is a beautiful hand crafted product so we ask that you care for it accordingly. We don’t use chemical detergents, we recommend a gentle wool wash. Please do not dry in direct sunlight.
First wash: soak in cold water for 24 hours with 1 cup of white vinegar and a cup of bicarb soda, then allow to drip dry.
As organic cotton is not absorbent initially, soaking before washing can help speed up the process of 'breaking-in' the cotton, allowing it to become absorbent more quickly.
When soaking for the first time, please ensure the towel is completely saturated with water, using your hands to work the water into the fibres if necessary. Please note that the towels may need pre-soaking and washing three or four times before becoming fully absorbent.
They require a bit of work initially but it is worth it to have beautifully sustainable cotton towels that will last and last.
Our beautiful table linen & towels are hand woven by women weavers in a small village outside Madurai in Tamil Nadu, Southern India. Sublaxmi is weaving our table cloths ready to be block printed by the Anoothi Women and is now able to support her family and put her children through school with her earnings.
