Sizing Guide

What size should I buy?

Please make sure that you take note of the measurements for each product. Due to the handmade nature of our products, sizing can differ slightly and sizes (M, L, XL etc) are not always uniform between different products particularly for unisex items. We do our best to let you know what the measurements are so that you can choose the right size. If you are unsure please contact us.

Please see the charts below for approximate sizing.  With the garment laid flat, and measured along the lines marked. For the closest comparison, measure a similar garment of your own with good fit in the same way and use as a guide for sizing.

How do I wash my items?

All our products are handmade and this means that they are delicate, and may need a little more care than usual. Please follow washing instructions on the label, but as a guide we recommend that our items are hand washed in cool water. Do not tumble dry, especially the jackets (we know it’s tempting, but it might shrink so put it on the washing line!)

The natural dyes used in our products can stain. We recommend that you wash items separately, keeping dark colours well away from your whites! Items may fade slightly after the first few washes, this is due to the nature of the dye and is normal.
