Hand painted pieces (unless otherwise noted) can be machine washed on a delicate setting with cold water. Hand washing with tepid water and a gentle detergent is also a great option. Do not put these pieces in the dryer. Hang to dry or dry flat and iron gently when needed. 

Wool and silk pieces should be spot cleaned and when necessary hand washed with tepid (never hot) water and gentle detergent. These pieces can be dry cleaned but should never go in the washing machine. Coats can also be spot cleaned and or dry cleaned. 

It is important to me that these garments be wearable and durable but please remember they are created by hand, often on vintage clothing. This means they should still be handled with care, especially when cleaning. 

The more care we put into laundering all our favorite clothing (not just Fruits of Venus) the longer we can keep loving them. This podcast has been instrumental in re-evaluating my relationship to how I care for all my clothes and I highly recommend a listen.
