Created for Red Squirrel Store by highly skilled artisans in Rajasthan.
We recommend hand washing at a cool temperature with mild detergent to preserve the colours. The kimono cotton is very light and so quick and easy to wash by hand. With care your robe will only lighten gradually and beautifully over time like a favourite pair of jeans.
And... if you dry your robe carefully after laundering, you may feel no need to iron as the cotton hangs so well.
Loved for millennia for wonderful
shades of blue, indigo is the world-famous natural colouring prepared from plants now appreciated as environmentally friendly too. Indigo dyed items mellow beautifully due to gradual fading and artisan items vary from batch to batch, so you end up with something subtly individual.
Until your item has been washed a few times, risk of some colour bleed or transfer from loose pigment. In the same way that you need to be conscious and careful with new dark denim jeans, avoid rubbing against light coloured upholstery, bed linens, white shirts, pale leather bags etc. until you are confident colour of your item has settled after a few washes.
Cool Wash separately or with similar dark colours by hand or gentle machine wash cycle. Mild detergent. No bleach.
