CARE

Our Tanzanian throws and table cloths are made using 100% Tanzanian cotton. They can be machine washed on your coolest cycle (30 degrees and below). The cotton will become softer with every wash. Due to the nature of the weave you'll need to be careful when machine washing them. Always place them inside a delicates bag or pillowcase to avoid any snagging. 

Always wash with similar colours and iron on a medium heat. 

They are not suitable for tumble drying or dry cleaning, please leave your textiles to dry naturally. 

Avoid placing them in direct sunlight as this may cause the dye to fade slightly.
