Fabric Care

  • Khadi Cotton – Can be hand washed in cold water with mild soap and starched afterwards, so that the fabric remains firm. Do not bleach. Do not wring. Dry it in shade. Do steam Iron. Do not iron on print/ embellishment.
  • Khadi silk/ khadi blends – Dry clean is preferred. Silk loses its strength when wet and therefore needs to be treated gently during laundering. Air-dry it in the shade to maintain the dye.
  • Khadi wool - Dry clean is preferred. Wool fibres are covered with tiny scales which causes felting and shrinkage when wet. To avoid felting and shrinkage, wool must be very carefully cleaned. If you dry clean, do not store item in plastic bag because wool needs to breathe. Use gentle cycle and wool preferred detergent if washing at home. Air-dry it in the shade to maintain the dye.

*Wash dark colors separately and never use chemical bleach.

*Khadi has the added value of allowing more air penetration which adds breathability to the fabric meaning you will stay cool in summer and warm during winters. Care should be taken to avoid snagging and pulling of threads. Please wash in gentle cycle.

*Some colors tend to bleed.
