• Cotton batik can only be washed in cold or warm water, NEVER in hot water.

  • Be prepared for the batik to lose a little colour during the first few washes. Please wash separately from other items.

  • Always wash the batik by hand or on a gentle cycle in your washing machine.

  • Batik should NEVER be tumble dried. Please hang-dry in the shade and iron lightly with steam afterwards.

  • When washing for the first time, it is recommended that you add a tablespoon of ordinary salt to the water and soak it for a maximum of 10 minutes before rinsing under running water. This will help to set the colours and extend the life of batik.

  • Avoid prolonged exposure to sunlight in order to prevent fading.
