This item is intended to be loved in your wardrobe for years to come. To ensure its longevity, hand wash in cold water with a drop of mild detergent. Hang or lay flat to dry. Iron wrong side only.
*All of the secondhand and vintage materials I use are cleaned, inspected, and mended to the best of my abilities before they are used to create your garments. However, due to the nature of the materials there may be "imperfections" such as signs of aging like staining or fraying to various degrees. I think this displays the history of these beautiful textiles and adds to the uniqueness and character of each garment.
I try my best to be transparent about the costs of creating items, and how that affects my pricing. For more info on this, please click the link here.
