Product properties and wash care

All of SAFAs products are handcrafted using the finest natural fibers. The subtle variations in colour, texture and finish are intrinsic to hand made products. Our products involve crafts-based traditions of spinning, dyeing, weaving, printing and embroidery. We use both vegetable dyes and chemical dyes with the goal of minimizing our impact on the environment while striving for the best colour properties. An irregular weave or print is not a defect – handloom, Jute by definition means uncertainty when it comes to uniformity.

Colours: We have done our best to display as accurately as possible the colors of the products shown on this Web site. However, because the colors you see will depend on your monitor, we cannot guarantee that your monitor’s display of any color will be accurate.

Wash care: Reds and blue colours tend to run. Please always wash like colours together and dry inside out in the shade. Silks must only be dry cleaned.
