Fabric Index & Care Instructions

 

Most of our fabrics are natural, hand dyed, and some are Hand Knitted, and Hand printed (silkscreen). Almost All products have been pre-washed to prevent shrinking. Because of this reason, our products should be washed in cold water, not exceeding 30ºC by hand or soft cycle in a washing machine, and should never be tumbled dry in hot air.

Washing our product in Hot water, and on Heavy setting on the washing machine might damage the natural fibers.

Detergent or fabric softener that contains bleaching agents might cause fading of fabric or print colors.

If you dry your Psylo clothes in direct sunlight, the UV light exposure might also cause fading of fabrics or print colors. 

To help you understand better the consistency and texture of each fabric, please refer to the following descriptions:
