- Care instructions
- Dried surface stains should be carefully scraped off. Spilt liquids should be absorbed immediately
by using a piece of kitchen towel. Alternatively,
you can place the affected area under running lukewarm water for a moment. Hand wash using a soft towel or sponge with mild detergent and lukewarm water.
- Treated with dirt-repellent, as a result of which liquid is not absorbed into the fiber but remains as droplets on the surface. The treatment will last for about 2-3 washes, after which it can be renewed.
