CARE INSTRUCTIONS - Home laundering is advised using the delicate cycle of the machine, warm water and gentle detergent. - Do not use fabric softeners or other chemical products as these will affect natural fibers and vegetable dyes. - Ideally hang to dry and never use extreme hot-air dryers. - Dampen fabric prior to ironing if required and do not use spray starch. Shrinkage will occur with all linens made of natural fibers. Expect a shrinkage of approximately 5%.
Following these instructions the fabrics will slowly soften as the fibers thicken and tighten in the weave and they will develop a beautiful aged patina. This is part of the design and beauty of the fabric loved by generations of Italian families. Size: Mat: 22" X 15" Napkin: 12" X 12"
