Our textiles and products are handmade using traditional indian techniques. Weaving, printing, and dyeing irregularities may occur giving it a unique texture and adds character to the fabric. We at Msafiri take pride in these unique textures and don’t consider it as defect.
All our textiles are pre-washed so shrinkage should not occur.
Paying extra attention to how you wash and take care of these meticulously made clothes will not only prolong their life, but also help minimize their environmental impact.
Organic Cotton - Linen - Khadi : Hand wash in cold water with mild detergent or gentle machine wash with similar fabrics and similar colors. Do not tumble dry. Hang dry or flat dry in shade. Iron while slightly damp.
Silk : Contrary to popular belief, Silk is good without dry cleaning. Hand wash in cold water with mild detergent and no tumble dry, no wringing. Hang dry in shade. Iron on low and inside out.
Natural Dyed : Naturally dyed fabrics are prone to bleeding in first 2-3 washes, with each changing color having its own beauty. Hand wash separately with mild to no detergent in cold water and hang dry in shade.
Hand Embroidered : All our embroidery is done by our skilled artisans on a traditional wooden frame using age old techniques. Extra care needs to be taken to wash them inside out and not rub or wring them. Hand wash in cold water and hang dry usually works the best. Do not iron directly on embroidered areas.
Hand Printed : The blocks used by our artisans for printing are hand carved, minor irregularities are a part of the process and are not considered as defects. Hand wash in mild to no detergent. Hang dry or flat dry in shade.
