|Please Note:||This item has been printed by the hands of artisans using time-honored block printing techniques. Keep in mind that colors and patterns may vary with every press of the block, and between each lot of dye mixed by the artisans. Slight inconsistencies are to be expected and are a mark of the craftsmanship that went into creating every part of the beautiful colors and patterns.
Natural Dyes: This product has been given its color using natural, earth-friendly dyes. Slight variations in color may occur.
We recommend dry cleaning only.
If you elect to machine wash your block print bedding, please use a delicate cycle, along with cold water. It's also suggested that a gentle laundry soap is used to preserve the beautiful colors. As always, it is recommended that bedding made of 100% cotton is air dried.
