Tips & Care Instructions
Wash in COLD water and Hang dry to avoid shrinkage.
REMEMBER: handmade items require a little more care when laundering.
Turkish Sile cloth has a vertical grain and the texture of the fabric will become more pronounced after the first wash/dry. Hang Dry to avoid shrinkage, and iron to reduce texture if desired. Dry cleaning is a great option to keep the structural integrity of the pockets, collars and overall size.
Remove sash and do not launder unless necessary. If you do need to launder the sash please hang to dry and smooth it down with your hands while wet so it remains flat. Do not tumble dry.
Our Kimono sets are designed to be oversized so they are a breeze to launder. If you throw me in the drier I will get a little smaller but I will be buttery soft and the true texture of my textile will emerge. Do not tumble dry.
Like all objects meant to last a lifetime, your Turkish towel will need proper care and a little extra maintenance from time to time. Here we share how to regularly care for your pieces, and we address some common Turkish towel issues that you can take care of on your own.
Towel Measurements: 40"x80"
Some towels may look larger than others based on texture and grain. Linen towels tend to pull along the vertical grain once washed and may appear more narrow, but all towels are woven on the same 40" loom.
For all pieces (except silk!), machine wash and tumble dry low or lay flat to dry. No special detergent needed. No fabric softener, dryer sheets, or bleach! You will find that your Turkish towel will shrink in size a little by using the drier but the payoff is the absorbency. We recommend dry-cleaning to maintain size for towels used as shawls.
Repairing A Pulled Loop
Simply snip the loop to be even with the rest of the loops.
Treating Spills & Stains
Use any store-bought stain treatment, but be careful to avoid bleach. A paste made with baking soda and vinegar also works wonders and is an all natural way to remove stains.
Dry clean only. Spot clean with standard spot treatment spray and pat to dry. NEED PILLOW INSERTS? Find suggestions below...
