  • Cold water is preferred when washing, do not exceed the maximum of 30°C, 
  • Do not iron directly on the print, 
  • Do not steam iron,
  • Do not bleach,
  • Do not tumble dry,
  • Wash similar colors together.

End of its life

Even though organic cotton is safely compostable, the whole garment is not because of the label and small garments accessories.

At the end of its life if it’s not possible for you to up-cycle your garment or to donate it because of its condition, the best action is to throw it in the fabric/garment trash bin, if there aren’t in your neighborhood, search on the internet for the nearest one. 

Remember that no garment should be thrown in the common trash bin as its fibers can be recycled by the right company.
