We work hand in hand with our manufacturing partners to create heirloom quality textiles that are ethically made to last a lifetime. Our textiles are naturally softened using time honored traditions of combing and washing, not from chemical softeners. Properly caring for your zestt items helps them to maintain their softness and durability and extends the conscious impact of each product.
We want your zestt items to be of everyday use - throws should be used to cuddle with kids and animals, kitchen linens should dry dishes and clean up after healthy meals. This means they're going to need washed, which is why we ensure all of our 100% organic cotton products are fully machine washable. We recommend washing cold on a gentle cycle.
Our products are GOTS certified, which means we've worked from seed to store to ensure that no harmful chemicals were used to grow the cotton, process the yarn or dye the final product. Carefully selecting a plant based cleaner continues this process and keeps irritants away from your skin. We love the Signature Detergent from the Laundress. And there's no need for chemical filled fabric softener or dryer sheets. Your cotton items will continue to soften naturally wash after wash.
When the weather allows, we adore being able to line dry your linens, but it's also fine to use your dryer to tumble dry low. A quick press of an iron will keep your items looking fresh and crisp until their next wash.
Since we refrain from using toxic chemicals in our production, we utilize all natural softening and combing techniques. This may make our cozy wearable textiles a bit more prone to wrinkles - a small price we are willing to risk! We see this mostly when traveling and they are tossed in a tote for the plane, for example. We recommend folding the piece before packing it away, to reduce the wrinkles while in transit. Beyond that, not to worry, our products are iron and steamer safe!
