Bitter-Bloom Women’s Kimono
Our garments are machine-washable and hold up well to home laundering. Remove the garment from the dryer promptly to reduce wrinkling. If you have been following our story, you will know that sustainability is one of the cornerstones of Pupuyu & Co. Our garments are not treated with harsh chemicals and we use minimal dye setters commonly used in conventional textile industry. There are a few ways to keep your clothes’ original colors lasting longer. To wash without worry, use these tips to reduce fading and bleeding:
- Hand wash in isolation is recommended for the first few washes to check for color overspill and to wash off excess colour, until the colour no longer bleeds into the water.
- Salt water soak for 15 minutes before final rinse is recommended as the salt helps to set the color into the fabric. This keeps the color from fading while the garment is being washed.
- Deep dip in cold water and use a mild/gentle/natural/bio-friendly cleanser/products
- Do not use bleach
- Re-shape while damp
- Drip dry in shade
- Iron fabric when it is still slightly moist, or use steam ironing
