Dyed hemp/embroideries: Dry clean is recommended. If hand washing, wash separately in cold water. Do not soak. Gently wring and hang separately with embroideries face up.
Indigo: Dry clean with a professional cleaner experienced with indigo is recommended, particularly for decor items. For hand washing, wash separately in cold water, gently agitate and then discard the water. Repeat this process a few times. Do not soak. After washing, gently wring out the garment and then hang separately to dry. Do not use bleach. You may also use a mild solution of cold water and vinegar to further set the dye.
The use of detergent may cause the loss of texture and density of the Indigo dyed fabric. This may also cause color irregularity to our garments. If soap must be used, we recommend using a mild detergent such as Woolite.
While we do the utmost to pre-treat fabrics and embroideries to minimize bleeding, VCP products use a natural coloring that may still be subject to residual bleeding. Do not wash dyed product with other garments.
