Details

  • Ethically made
  • 100% organic cotton
  • Low impact dyes
  • Hand made
  • GOTS certified (fabric + dyes)

  • Living wage

With over 2500 leather and textile factories lining the Ergene river, it has become a hotbed for the illegal dumping of untreated wastewater. Marine life is severely diminished and local people are being told not to use the rivers water. 

This product is dedicated to the Ergene river! We use 100% organic cotton and GOTS certified low-impact dyes that are treated at a wastewater treatment plant in all our blankets! No pesticides, less energy, less water and better soil for a brighter tomorrow.

  • Machine wash cold (max 40C).
  • Hang dry or tumble dry on low heat
  • Do not use fabric softeners or dryer sheets (weakens thread)
  • Do not use bleach (try baking soda and vinegar)

Should any loops get caught or stretch, cut the longest part of the loop with sharp scissors to the same length as all other fibers. This will not cause a hole or unraveling of the thread. 

*The towel becomes more absorbent over time and it could take a few uses before working at its best.

If one of the tassels comes undone, follow these easy steps to fix it:

  1. Divide thread into two equal parts
  2. Twist each section separately in a clockwise direction until each end is twisted to the ends.
  3. Now twist the two sections together in a counterclockwise direction until the two sections are twisted fully.
  4. Tie a knot at the end, leaving a little of the thread to hang and you're done!
