Care Instructions


  • Leather

For stains, spot clean by dabbing the affected area with a damp sponge and mild detergent or saddle soap. For upkeep and waterproofing, pure mink oil is most commonly used, but Neatsfoot oil also works well. When using oils it is important to keep in mind that they will darken the original color of the leather: mink oil will give a deep, reddish tone and darken the leather to a burnt caramel coloring, while Neatsfool oil will give a soft yellow, light/medium brown tone. 

  • Canvas

Our canvas bags with leather detailing should only be spot cleaned. To spot clean, blot stains using a damp sponge and soap, repeat if necessary. All our canvas bags can be washed on gentle with cold water, wrung out and hung to dry. Cold water will prevent the bag from shrinking.

  • Paper Lighting

Washable Kraft paper is made of natural cellulose fibres, it is a green and renewable resource that can be reused ongoing and recycled.

It is hard wearing, flexible and abrasive resistant. It can be spot cleaned or hand washed with mild detergent, is lightweight, dimensionally stable and will not shrink or stretch.

  • Turkish Towels

First Time Use

Organic cotton needs to be broken in to achieve optimal absorbency, as it hasn't been treated with with chemicals like other cotton.

We recommend you soak your Turkish towels in cold water before use. This soaking process helps to expand the cotton fibres, ensuring absorption and release of moisture from your very first use. 

Thick Looped Towels: soak for 24 hours
Flat Woven Pestamels: soak for 6-12 hours 

Everyday Care

Machine wash your towel in a low temperature setting of 30-40C.  
You may tumble-dry the towels, however be careful not to over-dry, as this can damage the organic fibres. 

Avoid fabric softeners, as they reduce the natural absorbency by coating the fibres in chemicals. Be careful not to wash your towels with any items that may catch on the loops or tassels.  

Hand-tied Fringing & Tassels

Each towel is made by hand using traditional methods, including hand-tied fringing and tassels. If your tassel comes undone, please follow these instructions.

Step one: 

Divide the loose threads into two equal sections. 

Step two: 

Twist the two sections separately in a clockwise direction until each piece is twisted to the ends.

Step three: 

Twist the two sections together in the opposite (counter-clockwise) direction until the two sections are twisted completely. 

Step four: 

Tie a knot at the end and you are done. 

Natural Stain Treatment

If your towels become dull or stained you can add 1/4 cup of baking soda and one cup of white vinegar to your wash, as a natural treatment. 

Please do not use bleach, it weakens fibres making them less absorbent and more fragile. 

What to do if a thread has pulled on your towel or blanket?

If any cotton loops become loose, simply snip the thread close to the towel or blanket with sharp scissors. Don't worry your hand loomed piece will not unravel or get a hole by doing this.

  • Towels

When washing your towels, be careful to avoid putting them with anything that may sag or pull such as velcro or zips.

When line drying your towels, it is best to hang them in the shade with good ventilation. Please avoid direct sunlight to prevent hardening of the pile and fading of the colours. 

For a fluffier finish, it is recommended you tumble dry your towel. Please be aware that the towel may shrink slightly in the dryer. 

Please avoid using fabric softener or bleach, as it may diminish absorbency and weaken the fibres. 

  • Cushions and Throws
