  • Obiage come in different designs some with embroidery detail and some hand painted, so how you look after them can vary. I would recomend Dry cleaning.

    For plain one colour design you can give them a gentle wash in warm water, note the colour may run and it could shrink slightly if its not been cleaned before. Do not wring out just give a gentle squeeze and hang to drip dry over a bucket (not in the sun).

    You can iron but avoid ironing on foil thread/decorative detail, use a cool iron and do not use steam, if you get water drips on it they will leave a water mark and the only way to remove is by washing.

    When in doubt always Dry clean.
