Care Tips

Every Sophie Williamson Design textile is made from certified organic linen and certified organic cotton. If you treat them right, they will last you a lifetime. Follow these care tips to ensure their longevity:

  1. Wash textiles at warm or 30ºC.
  2. Avoid the dryer. If you have to, you can tumble dry on delicate and low but better to avoid it.
  3. Instead, hang them on a line to dry preferably away from the sun.
  4. Iron them on left (i.e. the side without the print) while slightly damp or mist them with water before you iron. Set the iron to Cotton/Linen or Hot.
  5. Don’t use starch on linen. (Really, don’t.)
  6. On the occasion that there is a stain, dab water and some dish soap, then soak in water and wash as usual.
  7. Don’t dry clean them. And, pretty please, don’t use bleach or stain removers as bleach will wash out the print, and regular stain removers usually contain bleach. Enzyme stain removers usually work well!
  8. For lampshade cleaning, take off the base, place them upside down, and gently tap to shake off dust.

Trust us when we say that if you follow these guidelines, your fabrics will thank you and become more beautiful as time goes.
