Care Guide (washing, drying)

If you just received a product and notice any scent or discoloration, don’t worry. Both will disappear after the first wash.

Washing and drying clothes with embroidery requires special attention to ensure the fabric and embroidery remain in good condition. Here are some guidelines:


  • Cold Water: Use cold water to prevent the fabric and embroidery thread from shrinking.
  • Delicate Cycle: Opt for the gentle or delicate cycle on your washer to minimize agitation.
  • Mild Detergent: Use a mild detergent without bleach to avoid color bleeding or damage to the embroidery.
  • Turn Inside Out: Turn the clothing inside out to protect the embroidered parts.
  • Use a Mesh Bag: If possible, place the embroidered item in a mesh laundry bag to provide extra protection.


  • Low Heat or No Heat: Use the lowest heat setting on your dryer, or opt for an air-dry (no heat) setting if available.
  • Delicate Cycle: Choose the delicate or tumble dry low setting to minimize the chance of shrinking or damage.
  • Air Dry When Possible: To be safest, consider air-drying your embroidered items by laying them flat on a clean towel.
  • Avoid Direct Sunlight: If air drying, keep the item out of direct sunlight to prevent color fading.

Things to Avoid

  • High Heat: High temperatures can cause both the fabric and embroidery thread to shrink or warp.
  • Bleach and Harsh Detergents: These can degrade the embroidery and cause colors to fade.
  • High Spin Speeds: The rapid spinning can potentially damage the embroidery.

By adhering to these guidelines, you can help ensure that your embroidered items remain in good condition throughout the washing and drying process.
