As a handmade product each towel must be treated according to the care instructions in order to achieve its maximum life span.

FIRST TIME USE - PRE SOAK

All of our towels come pre washed and do not require a pre soak however, you can pre soak prior to your first use to achieve maximum absorbency quicker. This process helps expand and loosen the cotton fibres to ensure maximum absorption from your very first use.

Pre soaking your towels speeds up the process of breaking in the cotton so that it can become more absorbent quicker. Soak your thick towels in cold water for 24 hours and hang to dry. 

 

EVERYDAY CARE

Gentle cold or warm machine wash in water about 30-40C with a natural laundry detergent.

Avoid using bleach or fabric softeners as they reduce the absorbency and break down the natural fibres. Separate your towels from items that may catch on the loops or tassels.

Hang to dry or tumble dry on cool to medium, however be careful not to over dry as this can damage the fibres.

 

LOOSE THREADS & PULLS

If any cotton loops become loose simply snip the loose thread with sharp scissors. Don't worry this won't damage or cause the towel to unravel.

For pestamals, do not pull on any loose threads, simply find the end of the thread and pull it through.

 

FRINGING & TASSEL CARE

Each towel has fringing and tassels which are hand tied. If the tassel becomes undone simply tie the threads into a knot.

 

STAIN TREATMENT

If your towels have a stain you can add 1/4 cup baking soda and one cup of white vinegar to your wash as a natural treatment. 

Please do not use bleach or fabric softeners on your towels as it weakens the fibres and causes them to lose their absorbency.
