Care instructions


 + ALPACA SCARVES

Wool can shrink in hot water, so gently wash our 100% Alpaca wool scarves by hand in cool water with a gentle detergent. Line dry. Never machine wash!

+ ÇARIK LEATHER SHOES

To keep your leather çariks looking their best, regularly condition them with leather conditioner and spot clean as-needed with a mild detergent and warm water. You can add leather waterproofing products, but doing so may change the look of your product. Our SUEDE/NUBUCK models should be spot cleaned only with an eraser or a light brush - leather conditioner will ruin the texture. When in doubt, consult your local leather expert.

+ CHARCUTERIE BOARDS

Rescued Birdseye Maple and Cherry charcuterie boards are seasoned with a mineral oil bath and finished with butcher's block wax. Hand wash only with mild soap and warm water - never soak them in water and never put them in the dishwasher! Let dry vertically so that both sides dry at the same rate.  When the round loses its luster, rub with mineral oil or coconut oil (other food based oils are not recommended), let sit for 1 hour and then wipe off. The more oilings you perform early on, the less you will have to over the lifetime of the board and the longer the board will last.

+ FEATHER WREATHS

For occasional dusting of your feather wreath, we recommend that you use a hairdryer on low heat to gently blow off any dust. Start several inches from the wreath and move closer as needed. Be careful not to get so close that you bend the shafts of the feathers.

+ HADITHI BASKETS & KENYAN SHOPPERS

Kenyan Hadithi & shopper baskets are woven from all-natural fibers (sisal and palm) which are extremely strong and resilient. A bit of water won't hurt them - if they do get wet, just let them air dry. But they could get moldy if they sit in water for a prolonged period of time - so if you're using them as plant pots, make sure to use a waterproof liner and/or tray on the bottom. In addition, some of our natural baskets are dyed using pigments from tree bark and flowers and the colors could fade if in direct sunlight. 

+ INDIAN ORNAMENTS & TEA TRAYS

Clean Indian aluminum ornaments and trays by hand with lukewarm water and mild soap. Aluminum will not rust but it is prone to scratching, so we recommend that you not use abrasive cleaners. Most aluminum polish is not food-safe, so it's not recommended for polishing any products that might come in contact with food.

+ RANCHI BRAIDED RUGS & POUFS

Cotton and silk braided rugs are extremely durable and should last for decades with proper care.

    • Vacuum rugs lightly on the low suction/high-pile setting. Never use the brush attachment.
    • Avoid direct and prolonged sunlight exposure and moisture.
    • Do not treat with stain products.
    • If a stain occurs, spot clean with warm water and mild detergent. Better yet, professionally clean.

+ SHEEPSKINS & SHEEPSKIN PILLOWS

When properly cared for, tanned sheepskins should last a lifetime. They are naturally stain and water resistant (just like a sheep!), featuring sueded leather on one side and soft, fluffy wool on the other. For regular light cleaning, just give them a good shake outside.

Sheepskins should always be stored away from sunlight in breathable bags, and kept away from high heat sources. If any serious staining occurs, it's best to consult a professional leather or animal skin cleaner. 

+ TURKISH HAMMAM TOWELS

Before washing for the first time, true 100% Turkish cotton hammam towels should be soaked in cold water for 12 hours in a large sink or bathtub. This allows the cotton fibers to bloom and expand, ensuring maximum absorbency and softness. They will increase in absorbency the more they are used.

After this initial soak, they can be machine washed normally, preferably on delicate cycle, with no bleach. Line dry, or tumble dry on low heat. Avoid fabric softeners and dryer sheets, as they can gunk-up the fibers.

+ WOODEN SPOONS

Hand wash your carved wooden spoons only with mild soap and warm water - never soak them in water, and never put them in the dishwasher! When they lose their luster, rub with walnut oil or linseed oil, let sit for 1 hour and then wipe off.

+ WOOL PILLOWS & BLANKETS

100% sheeps wool pillows and blankets are naturally stain-resistant, and can be dry cleaned or gently hand washed in cold water. Line dry only. Absorb any liquid spills with a clean cloth. If a stain occurs, professional dry cleaning is the best way to go.

+ WOOL RUGS & CUSHIONS

Authentic Moroccan Beni Ouarain and Azilal rugs are made from high quality 100% wool that has been gently washed and dried in the sun. These pieces are truly "heirloom-quality" and are often passed down through the generations. To keep them in top shape:

    • Vacuum rugs lightly on the low suction/high-pile setting. Never use the brush attachment.
    • If they are small enough, give them a good shake outside.
    • Avoid direct and prolonged sunlight exposure and moisture.
    • Do not treat with stain products.
    • If a stain occurs, professional dry cleaning is the best way to go.
