FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS

Frequently asked questions

How do I care for machine or hand embroidered garments?


The best way to care for embroidered pieces is to wash them by hand, or with your machine on a delicate cycle with mild detergent. Do not bleach. Hang or lay flat to dry.




Can I wash painted denim?


Yes! All painted pieces are created with a heat-set paint medium mixed into acrylic paint, which allows you to wear and wash your item. However, like any customized piece I would recommend to only wash it when it really needs to, and to wash the piece by hand or by machine on a delicate cycle. It is okay to throw in the dryer on low heat. Hot tip: once you receive your item throw it in the dryer to further heat-set the paint!




Where are you located?


I work out of my studio/ storefront at #250 328 Center St S in Calgary, AB.




How do I care for mended garments?


Both hand mended and machine mended garments can be washed by hand or with your machine on a normal cycle. I recommend using mild detergent, and only washing when needed.
