Care for cotton and cotton blends
Machine wash (regular cycle) in a laundry bag with similar colours; line or tumble dry; use hot iron. Do not use chlorine bleach.
Care for linen
Machine wash (gentle cycle) with similar colours (preferably in a gusset bag); dry flat to prevent distortion of the garment. If ironing, do so while still slightly damp. Do not use chlorine bleach. Can be hand-washed or dry-cleaned. Repeated hand or machine washing will soften linen over time, reducing creasing. Dry cleaning will keep linen looking crisp.
Care for brocade, damask and tweed
Dry-cleaning is highly recommended.
