How should I care for my cushion or quilt?

We hope that you treat your hand-drawn quilts and cushions with the same love and care with which they were created. Although the ink manufacturer (Setaskrib+) states that the colours are resistant to a 40 degrees machine wash – gentle detergent and no bleach. To ensure your item retains its best appearance for as long as possible, we recommend cold hand wash and line dry out of direct sunlight  or to be super sure, dry clean only and everyone’s happy!

Should I use ‘oxi -action’ stain removing detergent products?

No. The use of oxi-action products, contained in some detergents, will significantly reduce the life of the any printed design. To retain a vibrant print for as long possible, be sure to use detergents which do not contain oxi-action bleaching agents.
