Care: 30°C wash, low tumble dry heat or hang to dry, do not wring and iron on low heat on the reverse of the fabric. We would recommend that you always use a good steam iron to prevent drying out the linen and damaging the fibers.
Cushion Inner – We recommend to spot clean the cushion or hand wash the fabric. Do not machine wash or Iron, tumble dry at a low temperature.
We recommend vigorously fluffing your cushion inner, to get the best results remove the cover and pop it in a low-temperature tumble dryer for 1 hour with two tennis balls covered in cloth or socks. The tennis ball will hit the cushion, fluffing up the filling.
