HOW TO CARE FOR YOUR GARMENTS
African Super-Wax Cotton and African Wax cotton are both forms of 100% cotton materials. The general guidelines for caring for and maintaining these garments are as follows.
- Always handle with care.
- Wash light and dark colors separately.
- Wash all garments inside out to protect the pattern.
- Avoid overfilling the washing machine.
- Do not wring, rub or twist the material.
- Do not bleach.
- Do not tumble dry.
- Hang to dry in the shade (do not expose the garment to direct sunlight)
- Iron inside out on no higher than 150C.
ENVIRONMENTALLY FRIENDLY HOME WASHING
Ensure all garments are washed using a 40C programme. Setting your machine to a low spin will help to minimise energy usage and protect the garment from wear and tear. To further improve the efficiency of your wash, ensure your drum is filled to the correct capacity. Follow the washing detergent's instructions exactly, making sure to abide by the specified measurements and quantities. These steps will help to reduce your household carbon footprint while maintaining the quality of your African pieces.
PROFESSIONAL DRY CLEANING
For the best results, always seek out professional dry-cleaning services for your African print garments. Advise them that a mild process must be used to maintain the item's integrity. Dry cleaning services use a wealth of experience to ensure your favorite piece is returned to you in pristine condition.
HOW TO MAINTAIN YOUR AFRICAN PRINT
Please note that all fabrics are made using 100% cotton. This natural material allows for shrinkage of up to 5% during washing. Over time, fabric may lose some of their color and/or finish.
