Guatemalan Fabric Care

Guatemalan fabric is 100% cotton, but as it is hand dyed and handmade washing instructions should be followed to maintain the vivid colors.

1. For the first washing, hand wash or soak fabric in a combination of water and a small amount of non-iodized salt (kosher is okay) to set the colors.

2. After setting the colors the fabric may be machine washed in cold water using a mild soap.

3. Line-dry.

4. Expect fabric to shrink approx. 1" in width and length per yard.
