Garment Care

How do I wash my Solomon Street products? Good question. 

Washing plays a huge part in the environmental footprint of your clothes and can extend the life of your products.
Wash your SOLst products in our compostable cotton bag to reduce any unnecessary damage to the fabric.
Please refrain from using bleach and it is preferred if you only line dry and do not iron, bleach or use softener.  

Taking care of your Solomon Street Hemp garments is really easy!
They are made of the highest quality GOTS certified organic cotton and hemp, the fabric is soft and durable.
Each SOLst purchase comes with a compostable washing bag in which can protect your garments from friction and damage caused from your washing machine.
