FOR YOUR CLOTHING-
May Clothing uses only the
finest natural materials in our garments. Due to the nature of how and
where are garments are intended to be worn, we take great consideration
into the launder ability and ease of care for our clothing. Please
always follow our recommended washing instructions.
- Cotton garments should be hand laundered in cool water
and line dried. You may also put your 100% cotton clothing in the
washing machine on the gentle cycle with cool water/like colors. Air
drying is always recommended. Please do not hang your garments in
direct sunlight as this may cause discoloration and fading.
- Linen garments should be hand washed in lukewarm water
and dried flat only. Both cold and hot water will cause linen to shrink
and alter its shape.
- Silk garments should always be dry cleaned only.
- Wool garments should be dry cleaned only.
- Hand dyed garments should always be washed separately
by hand in cold water only. Line dry. Bleeding may occur, especially in

Washing Soda can be harsh on dyed fabrics. Use with caution. Never pour
detergent or softeners
directly onto fabrics. Always dilute in the wash

garments as this can cause fiber damage.
- Hats, Bonnets, and Straw should be spot cleaned with a
slightly damp cloth only. Spot test silks prior to cleaning. Never
scrub millinery. Never wear
millinery in inclement weather- including mildly damp conditions.
Raw edged garments will naturally fray at the edges as you wear them,
especially after washing in a machine. Simply trim off the extra loose
fibers to retain the look that you desire.
Remember, when worn regularly, natural fibers will begin to show signs
of wear. This is a unique patina that tells your sartorial story. Just
like antiques, the garments are meant to age, tell a
story, and gain character over time.
