7. What is the best way to care for Sunbula’s craft items?

Embroidery: Most of our embroidery items should be dry cleaned, or hand washed in warm water.  Dining linens from Surif Women’s Cooperative can be machine-washed with gentle settings in cold water.

T-shirts: Machine-washed in cold water

Jewelry: Store your brass jewelry wrapped in a cloth and store in a dry place to prevent tarnishing.  Polish your jewelry from time to time, using a polishing cloth that is usually available at local jewelry shops. You can also wash in warm water and wipe with a soft cloth.

Olive wood: You can wash your olivewood products gently by hand with warm water and soap, wipe down with a soft cloth, and dry naturally.  Rub olive oil onto the wood using a kitchen towel or a soft cloth from time to time
