All the textiles on Lou Hopper.com are hand printed and as such require gentle care when it comes to washing. Here are the recommendations given by each of the designers to care for and prolong the life of their products:
iSpy fabrics wash well on a cold wash, gentle cycle in the washing machine. The fabric is 100% cotton, so a warm to hot iron is also fine. Please turn inside out to iron.
Shine Shine products should be hand washed in cold water.
If necessary, hand wash the bags in cold water. Please do not rub on the prints when washing, do not spin, tumble dry or use an iron.
Please turn all Olkapolka clothes inside out and either wash on a gentle machine cycle or by hand in cold water. Do not use chlorine or bleach on the garments, or tumble dry them. Please do not iron directly on the prints, rather iron inside out.
Sillybilly clothes are machine washable at 40 degrees with like colours and should be turned inside out. You can use a hot iron, except on the fine net fabrics; although you will notice that many of the garments may not require ironing after washing. Please do not iron directly on prints, rather iron inside out. To keep the garments in tiptop condition, you should not tumble dry, dry clean, use bleach or rub the prints.
