* there is currently no source of certified organic cotton within Bangladesh, so this product is made of non-organic cotton. We have chosen to include it in our collection because the other benefits associated with it, such as the use of botanical indigo and artisanal skills, are extremely positive. The cotton has also been spun and woven locally, contributing to rural livelihoods. 

Washing Instructions: hand wash separately in cold / lukewarm water with mild detergent only, i.e. detergent that contains no bleaching agents (including oxygen-based ones) or enzymes. Dry on a flat surface in the shade.
