Caring for your Seshweshwe

When you first receive your LESEDI garment you will notice that the Seshweshwe material is quite stiff compared to other fabrics. This is due to the unique starch that is used to preserve the fabric when it is first produced. After washing, the stiffness of the fabric disappears, as the starch washes out, to leave behind a beautiful soft cotton fabric. 

Seshweshwe is a unique & delicate material and needs to be handled with care. Please only wash your LESEDI garments in cold water on the "Delicates Cycle" of your washing machine or hand wash with cold water. Washing in hot water will damage the fabric. 

Make sure to wash your garments with similar colours. Do not tumble dry and do not Dry Clean.
