How can I care for my textiles?

Our products are made with 100% cotton and/or recycled objects, crafted with dexterity and passion to your home, so some of them may require special attention ;) 

PLEASE NOTE that all our fabrics are pre-washed to prevent color bleeding; however, since the color of the fabric is a natural dye, it may transfer if exposed to excessive moisture. The fabric is made of hand-sewn and woven straps. For these reasons, you will sometimes observe small gaps between the bands, which gives a unique character to each product.

Find our recommendations below. Please note you should always be cautious when dealing with handmade goods.

Organic Pillow covers:

Every textile is hand washed  cold to preserve their quality before sewing. We recommend dry cleaning or delicate/soft cold settings in your machine and lay flat to dry.

Throw Blankets:

Dry cleaning is advisable for our blankets that are pre-washed and handle with care for you. Or hand wash using lukewarm water and gentle kneading. Use a good neutral soap or light detergent. Iron the back on a low temperature. When storing your blanket  make sure to fold it leaving the wrong face on the outside.  Do not keep African Mudcloth under direct sunlight for too long it could deteriorate the natural color of the fabric. 

 

How should I take care of my Basket and Fan? 

The leather handles of the Bolga baskets, fans and fabric fans should always stay dry. To clean them, use a dry cloth or slightly wet with white vinegar or rubbing alcohol and spot clean. As for all baskets, for shipping purposes, we will compress, flatten them. No worries! ;)  The baskets may look misshapen, but just sprinkle or spray (preferred) cold water on the parts that need reshaping allow the grass to absorb moisture bend and reshape it as needed and it will regain its original form et voilà!

 

What sizes of insert do you recommend?

Our pillow covers do not include inserts however we recommend our clients to use inserts that are 1-2 larger than the pillow cover they will purchase. Plump up your cushions every day to keep them looking great.

 

Where in Africa do you work?

We currently work with artisan groups in Burkina Faso, Ghana (Bolgatanga), Senegal (Thies and Dakar),Mali and Ivory Coast and hope to extend to more beautiful  countries of the continent soon.
