This cotton has a slight crinkle which may appear to shrink if you had dried in an airing cupboard or in direct heat. for best results, press or iron when slightly damp using a steam iron and your kaftan will spring back to length. Avoid ironing on necklines or areas with crystals or sequins.
We recommend hand washing in lukewarm water using a non biological powder or liquid for any cottons with beading or crystals on, to preserve the detail and quality of our cotton clothes.
When hand washing cotton beach dresses or cotton kaftans, as with all dark dyed and hand dyed fabrics, some colour may wash out which is more apparent when hand washing. Wash in lukewarm water. Rinse in cold water. Colour will only run if you have used hot water over 40* and if you have used a biological detergent which may contain a stain removing or bleaching agent.
Remove excess water and then hang dry immediately, always reshape whilst damp. Test any stain removers on the inside of coloured fabrics first. We suggest gentle baby wipes to gently remove stains, always test first. If you are washing your items on holiday, please rinse and drip dry in the shower and dry in the shade as direct sunlight may reduce the colour on the wet garment.
Do not machine wash. Do not spin in a machine to remove excess water as this will make the cotton fabric compact and appear to shrink. Excess heat in a tumble dryer and washing machine may shrink your garment.
