Product Care

Caring for your basket

Your basket really needs no extra special care and if you look after it, it will give you many faithful years of use.

If your basket gets wet

The baskets do not mind getting wet. Whether from a load of laundry or a damp beach towel or gym gear, just make sure that you let it dry out before storing.

If your basket gets dirty

Any dirt can be removed with warm soapy water and allowed to completely dry.

The leather can also be cleaned with warm soapy water. Leather conditioners can be used but are not necessary.

If your basket gets out of shape

If your basket ever gets out of shape, the easiest way to reshape it is while it is wet! This will soften the fibre and allow you to re-mould it back into shape.

  • Step one: Put it in the laundry tub, splash cold water around it to dampen.
  • Step two: Place a damp towel behind the affected area to re shape it.
  • Step three: Hang it up for a few hours or over night.
  • Step four: Remove the damp towel and allow the basket to completely dry. Drying it in the sun is perfect.

Note: If you soak your basket, do not soak for more than a few minutes.

If your basket ever gets mouldy

To prevent mould spores from contaminating other clothing or areas it is best to do this outside or away from clothing and wardrobes etc.

  • Step one: Wipe off or wash off any mould with warm soapy water.
  • Step two: In a spray bottle, add 5 drops of Oil of Cloves (available from the chemist) to 500ml of cold water. Spray on the entire basket including handles to make sure all the spores are killed.
  • Step three: Allow to completely dry, in the sun if possible.
  • Step four: Once dry, spray basket and handles with Glen 20

It may pay to check the area where the basket was stored in case there is other mould contamination.

Note: Oil of Cloves – It is important to read the instructions before use.

Caring for your Fouta

Your Fouta is machine washable. The more you use it, the softer and more absorbent it becomes. Store your clean Fouta in a cool, dry and well-ventilated area.

  • Iron (if required) on Cotton Setting

Caring for your 100% Linen Tea Towel

Linen, like other natural fibres will shrink slightly with the first wash. Is best ironed while it is still damp.

Placing linen in a plastic bag in the freezer for a few hours prior to ironing will make it easier to iron.

If your linen becomes heavily stained, it is best to use an oxygen type bleach (such as Napisan), and not a chlorine bleach as a chlorine bleach may cause linen to yellow.

Store clean linen in a cool, dry and well-ventilated area. Do not store in plastic.

If it becomes stained or mouldy, soak in an oxygen bleach and dry in the sun.
