How to care for your Thandi hand crafted items to ensure a long and productive life

 

Chunky Cotton Basket

Chunky recycled cotton:

This thick, pure cotton washes well, but only in COLD WATER! Hot water will cause shrinkage. Any stains can be sprayed with commercial stain removers. It is best to wash the item QUICKLY in a washing machine or by hand. DO NOT SOAK, this may cause discolouration of the natural fibres. This thick fibre can be quite difficult to dry in damp climates. It is better suited to dry, sunny conditions. Dry placemats flat to retain their shape, and ottoman covers dry well over a form that suits their shape.

Fine recycled cotton

This finer recycled cotton washes extremely well, but only in COLD WATER! Hot water will cause shrinkage. Any stains can be sprayed with commercial stain removers. It is best to wash the item on a short washing cycle in a washing machine or by hand. DO NOT SOAK ... this may cause discolouration of the natural fibres. This raw material washes well on a short cycle in a washing machine and dries quickly. Dry flat or in the original shape of the product.

Eco-twine Basket

Eco-twine

This rustic, eco-friendly raw material is hardy and durable. However, due to the natural fibres, it is best to wash the product gently by hand to prevent fraying. It washes well in COLD WATER and dries relatively quickly.
