Caring for your eco-ethical textiles
Our fabrics are colour and light fast and printed with water
miscible dyes which are environmentally friendly. The dyes we use
permeate through the fibres which gives an intense and lasting
colour. We have purposefully chosen not to use pigment inks as
they have a greater chance of fading and rubbing off.
Natural textiles are prone to imperfections, such as tiny knots,
called slubs and neps. These are generated during the weaving
process and are considered part of the charm of a natural product.
Please take care following the washing instructions to reduce the
knots that may become dislodged in the washing process. When the
little knots come off the result is a little base fabric
So now you've got your Heart Ethical eco-ethical fabric in your
home, we're sure you want to keep it looking just right. You can
take good care of your fabric by following these instructions:
- We recommend that you either dry clean or hand wash our fabric.
If you are hand washing, remove excess water by rolling the fabric
in a towel.
- Please do not soak the fabric, this will affect the
- Please air dry the fabric, and don't use a dryer.
- To get that perfect finish give the fabric an iron on the
reverse side of the print. When ironing the linen, try to do it
before the fabric dries properly. If it's a little bit damp it
seems much easier to get that lovely crisp finish.
Now you can just relax and enjoy your home interior design with
your favourite Heart Ethical fabric.
