Maintenance and Care

All textiles by Johanna Gullichsen are designed with an emphasis on longevity. Good maintenance will enhance their durability and textural qualities. Always made from the finest natural materials with high standard craftsmanship, the textiles will feel and look their best when looked after well. Certain fabrics, such as linen, will grow softer, more sumptuous and improve with time.

To prolong their life and reduce the environmental impact, it is recommended to follow the care instructions for each textile category. We recommend using a neutral detergent and washing at the temperature recommended for each material.

Our team will be happy to assist with all repairs and any questions about maintenance. Items with wear-and-tear or damaged parts can be brought back to us for fixing. Our fabrics are designed for long-lasting quality and we will help you choose the best materials for each use.
