Care Instructions

These Korowai are categorised as FRAGILE GARMENTS and need special care and attention to see it last as a multi-generational heirloom.

 

Spot clean only - do not machine wash or handwash. Do not twist or wring. Do not tumble dry. Do not dry clean. Never iron. Due to the fragile nature of the feathers, you will risk damaging your Korowai if you do not follow these strict care instructions.

If you must spot clean your Korowai, do not hang it in direct or strong sunlight as this can damage and cause your feather colours to fade over time. Let it dry out in the shade.
