Cottons & Rayons

Certified Green Technology Fabrics that have this green leaf symbol are Certified Green Technology. The Thai Department of Environmental Quality trains and certifies dyers to use "Safe" dye techniques that don't pollute or adversely affect the health of the dyers.

All cottons are medium weight, plain weaves unless otherwise stated.

 

 

How do I care for my handwoven ikat fabrics?

Cottons may be machine washed separately in cold water and machine dried (medium heat setting). After several washings you may find ironing unnecessary; remove clothing when still damp and finger press edges. Silk handwovens should be handwashed in a mild soap such as Orvis and tepid water. Do not wring silk. Hang dry and iron when still damp. a method I learned in Thailand involved taking the damp silk (after it has been hung for a while to get off most of the water), rolling it in a towel, putting it into a clean plastic bag in the refrigerator for a couple of hours — then ironing is a breeze!
