Hand or machine wash: we recommend a gentle cycle at 30°C - simply because it's the most sustainable. The garment won't get damaged in higher temperatures.
Do not bleach, dry in the shade and be happy: there’s no need to iron.

Hurry up! The items available are not so many and it’s not easy for us to restock them. Quantities are limited because we buy exclusively from small retailers: fabrics travel across Africa from one country to another and sometimes they run out of stock very fast.

Why does it cost like this?

We think anyone who buys a garment has the right to know what's behind. This is why we have made the cost of each of our products transparent.
