Garment Care Instructions
Congratulations on your new purchase. We've put together a few guidelines to help you care for your new product. It's a good idea to pre-wash any washable natural fibres that you will be washing in the future, as some shrinkage may occur. We recommend pre-washing in the same way you intend to wash your future fabric creation including drying. Wash light and bright colours separately, as some colours may run in their first few washes.
Please note, these care tips are guidelines only and variations will apply to some fabrics.
Special washing instructions will apply to some fabrics such as sequinned, beaded, coated or foiled fabrics as well as specialty weights/styles and delicate items. If you have any questions, please do not hesitate to contact us

Dry clean only. Do not spot clean. Never iron as ironing is likely to crush or flatten the natural pile. A hand held steamer can be used to remove creasing. Alternatively, hang your fabric or garment in a steamy bathroom as the steam may help relax any creasing.

Avoid using clip hangers as these can bruise or mark the fabric.

Regularly clean, condition and polish your leather shoes for longer lasting wear. Weather proofing with a water repellant product not only helps repel water but will help resist dirt and stains.
Re-apply the product after you clean your footwear. Follow the directions on the water repellant in order to achieve the best results.
Store suede footwear in a dry place away from sunlight.
Don’t crowd them in a closet because the material needs to breathe.
Moisture can cause them to mildew.
Sunlight can fade colour.
Keep your handbag away from direct sunlight for periods of time. This can cause severe fading even on the finest leathers.
If your bag has a chain handle, store the chain inside the bag to avoid scratching the outside leather when the bag is resting.
Always apply leather conditioners to a cloth rather than directly onto the leather. Only use the rain repellent after firstly conditioning the bag. Then apply the repellent in smooth continuous sweeping motions to avoid concentrated areas of product, which if uneven could stain a bag.
Do not use leather conditioner on patent bags
Always handle leather handbags with clean hands. Leather bags are susceptible to absorbing grease and oils
White bags will yellow or naturally darken with age.
If needed, dust off belt after wear with a soft, dry cloth.
If something accidentally spills on your belt, blot the stains with a clean cloth and use a product that was specially formulated for
cleaning leather, followed by a leather softening agent.
Leather softeners and cleaners have essential oils in them to replenish the natural oils originally found in the leather.
If your belt becomes wet, lay it flat and let it dry at room temperature.
Never put a leather belt into the clothes dryer as this can cause it to harden and lose its shape.
Avoid direct contact with perfume, make-up and other harmful chemicals.
Do not wear jewellery when sleeping.
Avoid wearing jewellery when doing sports etc.
Clean jewellery with a soft damp cloth and steer clear of using soap on softer gems such as pearls.
Store pieces in a soft jewellery bag or away from other pieces to prevent scratching.
Hand wash only
Always wash separately as colour may bleed.
Dry cleaning inflicts the fabric with harsh chemicals. These will have undesirable effects on both the material and the dye.
Do not rub soap into stains, this produces a rub spot
Never add any harsh chemicals such as or containing bleach.
