Care
 
All Twig Prints products are made from 100% Natural
Linen and 100% Cotton fabrics or a mixture of both.
Simply spot clean with a damp cloth and air dry or iron

Linen comes from the flax plant and is one of the earliest fibers to be made into cloth. It is a very strong and durable fabric and has a lovely crisp texture.

How to clean:

To sustain the sturdiness and smooth texture of your item, simply spot clean with a damp cloth and air dry or iron. You may also dry clean (only if necessary as it can get quite pricey). Please note that if you do wash your tub in water expect approximately 5% shrinkage and it will lose it’s original crisp look and texture. All linen products can be ironed when necessary using the “linen” setting on your iron.

Burlap is often used to ship goods like coffe beans

Burlap is a woven fabric made from skin of the jute plant. It is a very tall, grasslike plant which is grown for the strong fibres in its stalks. These fibres are cut and cleaned and then woven into cloth. It is used to make quality industrial yarn, fiber, net, and is often used to make sacks and bags to ship goods like coffee beans. It is breathable, durable and tough enough to withstand rough handling.
Historically, the burlap hairshirt was used by some religions to induce discomfort or pain as a sign of repentance and atonement. German soldiers from the state of Hesse had uniforms commissioned from the sturdy material, thus giving burlap its other referred name, Hessian.
Burlap is 100% biodegradable and recyclable and thus 100% eco friendly.

How to clean:

Burlap does not like to get wet. It tends to shrink when washed, create massive amounts of lint in your washing machine, wrinkle like crazy and will even smell bad when wet. My simple recommendation is to spot clean with a damp cloth and air dry.

Floursacks were used to create various household items

The Floursack Teatowel
During the "Horse and Buggy" days homemakers purchased their flour in 100 lbs bundles or sacks made from 100% fine woven cotton. Once emptied, these  frugal folk used to cut up the floursacks to create various household items which included kitchen towels, polishing cloths, bed sheets, pillow cases, and even underwear!
A time-honored essential with natural simplicity and versatility, these soft, white, pure cotton floursack towels are more absorbent, more economical, and less wasteful than paper towels.
 
How to clean:

Just throw them in the washing machine on a cold cycle. You may experience a small amount of shrinkage on the first wash. Use a stain remover if need be and hang to dry or if you’re like me, just pop them in the dryer.
