    We encourage you to spot clean and spray with a mixture of lavender (or any other antimicrobial essential oil) and water while the garment is inside-out for a refresh. Washing less helps to extend the life of your garment. 
When necessary hand wash in cold water with gentle detergent and lay flat to dry.  
    Vintage/second-hand items may come with minor flaws due to pre-loved wear. Plant dyed items are all dyed by hand; saturation dye patterns tend to not be uniform (which is a characteristic that we LOVE). Please enjoy and appreciate this item with its unique character. Vintage items are FINAL SALE. We want you to be happy with your one-of-a-kind piece, so please email for any questions regarding fit or condition.
