Care Instructions

Cotton

Cotton is the fabric woven from the flax plant (linum usitatissimum). The stem of this plant produces the natural fibre that gives cotton its distinctive quality and texture.

Cotton and linen are natural fibres and  they are not always uniform in color and texture; while we make every effort to ensure reproduction of our catalogue and wzbsiteto be as accurate as possible, we cannot garantee a  100 % colour match ;

Washing

Our line can be washed in a washing machine as the cotton has not been pre- washed.

Stains

Ideally, as soon as something is spilt on your lovely linen tablecloth you should soak it using a good detergent. This could be inconvenient in the middle of dinner - just remember to soak the linen as soon as possible. Never throw salt on red wine stains as this will fix it. You could however dilute the red wine by pouring a little white wine or water on it – then soak it.

 

Tumble drying

We do not recommend tumble drying in our washing instructions as it always decreases the live of any fabric (think of the fluff in the filter!).

Ironing

Here are a few ironing tips:

  • Always iron linen while still damp (it’s much easier to get rid of the creases) – then fold and put in an airing cupboard or somewhere warm.
  • Use a steam iron.
  • Linen water is a great invention – fragranced water that can be sprayed on as you iron. It smells great and helps with the ironing too.
  • Iron folded sheets, duvet covers and tablecloths – if you don’t mind the chequer board creases (which we like), then this can reduce the time it takes.
  • Use starch for table linen and clothes for that crisp linen look. It will also slightly protect the fabric from stains.
  • Ironing embroidered linen can be difficult as the iron can get caught in the stitching and cause damage. Just place a piece of plain material over the top and iron the two together.
