Most of our items are composed of artisan-made fabrics. You’ll find that colors slightly vary, ink drips sneak in, and small irregularities (like slubs) are evident in the woven fabric. This is a stamp of handmade luxury and means your purchase is unique and special.

Treat your MIRTH items gently and with care, and they will last for years to come.


Follow care instructions on the label of your garment. Hand washing in cold water with gentle detergent and laying flat or hanging to dry is the best bet to make your piece last a long time. Some fabrics can be in the machine on delicate or the "hand wash" setting with cold water. Refer to the care tag on your item.

We discourage bleach, especially on our cotton/silk fabrics. For all fabrics, use a gentle detergent, preferably pH neutral. On natural dyes, treat with extra special care: wash by itself by hand and use only a pH neutral soap. Bleeding will occur the first few washes. Sunlight will fade the dye, so only dry in the shade.



Dry cleaning is possible for all clothing products with the exception of indigo-dyed products.

Tassels can be hand washed and a comb used to straighten the yarns before drying. Sometimes a warm iron helps with a few wrinkles, but you’ll find most of the fabrics dry beautifully.

Although many of our handlooms are actually more durable than machine made fabric, they are loosely woven by nature and susceptible to further loosening between yarns when pulled extensively or roughly handled.
