Sahana Byron Bay products are mainly hand-woven with fabrics ranging in a variety of hand-spun cotton and linen. The process of weaving and designing through threadworm is entirely manual which is why you will find variations in the fabric. These irregularities are not necessarily defects but are an integral characteristic of the handloom.

For best care: Hand-washing is recommended. However, a gentle machine wash cycle with cold water can be used as well. Avoid the use of harsh chemicals such as strong perfumes, starch and strong detergents. Both eco-friendly dyes and natural fibre require clothes to be dried in shade instead of sunlight to prolong its longevity. Wash dark-coloured and light-coloured garments separately. All naturally dyed fabrics tend to bleed in the first few washes. This is a natural process for which special care should be taken owing to the properties of the dyes.
