They burn test each fabric to assure that it is at least 90% natural, plant-based fiber.
Please carefully hand-wash and lay flat to dry for best results. Because of the carefully handmade nature of this piece, it is as eco friendly as it is uniquely stylish. Each piece may vary slightly in color and texture, and we celebrate this.
