Thank you for choosing sustainable home linen from our collections. These products offer exceptional quality of design and colour and are all machine washable. Few tips to enjoy them wash after wash.
All Tissage Moutet fabrics are machine washable, and they should always be washed! Avoid mixing synthetic and natural fibres; polyester can form lint which can catch on natural fibres. All natural materials (cotton, linen, rayon, cotton-linen mix) are sensitive to concentrated alkaline solutions and to bleach products.
Beware of detergents that contain optical brighteners, which can seriously alter colours. Optical brighteners are products that absorb invisible UV light, transforming it into visible light: essentially, they are specific colourants that markedly increase the degree of whiteness that we can see, sometimes emitting a blue reflection. However, they also shift pink to purple, yellow to yellow-green and orange to beige. These colour changes are more noticeable in pastel colours and are sometimes wrongly put down to a weakness in the colouring of the linen. We recommend to use detergents made with natural Marseille soap without any additives.
Fabric softeners should be especially avoided for tea towels, as they reduce the absorbency of textiles. Instead, consider putting a “shot” of white vinegar in the fabric softener tray; it’s good for the linen and environmentally friendly.
Bear in mind that all textiles made with natural fibres (cotton, linen) shrink naturally by 5 to 10%,.
