YuMiChi clothes are handcrafted from 100% GOTS* certified organic cotton fabric and dyed with GOTS certified dyes. This means that they are sustainable and made under fair trade conditions.
YuMiChi clothes are natural garments and are not treated with the long list of chemicals used in the conventional cotton growing, spinning, weaving, bleaching, sewing and coloring and fixing. The are also hand-crafted so variations are part of the individual beauty.

Please wash your new garments before the first wear. The garments you received have been washed so there should be no shrinkage. Machine wash cold to warm with similar colors using natural laundry detergent. Do not use bleach unless necessary and then only non-chlorine bleach. Turn the garment inside out to preserve the brightness of the colors.
Since you have bought a natural product it only makes sense to avoid a toxic build-up of chemicals used in conventional laundry detergents. There are a number of natural laundry detergents available on the market.
Treat stains the way you would with on any other cotton garment.
