The first time you wash your shirt we recommend that you soak the shirt overnight to allow the starch and other finishing products to dissolve. For the first wash it is best to wash the shirt on a cold cycle to protect the quality of the cotton. Subsequently, we recommend machine washing no hotter than 40°C. We also recommend that you follow the instructions on the shirt label closely. When drying it is best to hang the shirt on a hanger to minimise wrinkles. We do not recommend tumble drying. Indeed, this type of aggressive drying can break the cotton fibres, alter colours, weaken the stitches and thereby shorten the lifespan of the shirt.
Café Coton recommends ironing shirts when they are still slightly damp.
Dry cleaning of selection and couture shirts is not advised due to the genuine mother-of-pearl buttons.
