Naturally dyed cotton string bag - 100% Cotton
Natural dyes are a bit more temperamental than synthetics so a little extra tenderness is required to care for these items. We ensure our naturally dyed range is as colourfast as possible by taking extra steps in the dye process such as pre-treating the basecloth with tannin & mordants. We recommend a cold wash (either by hand or machine) using gentle, earth-friendly detergents. Please be aware that some colour may lift out of the fabric over time. It is also recommended, if you are going to machine wash your string bag to put it inside a 'delicates' bag to prevent snagging.
