Every Blau California piece has been lovingly hand-dyed in Los Angeles, CA, using the highest quality organic materials, fibers, and dyes. Each piece is one-of-a-kind and reflects the imperfections inherent to nature. In order to preserve the life and love of your Blau piece, please hand-wash separately using a gentle cleanser and, whenever possible, hang to dry, avoiding direct sunlight (evening drying is our favorite). Please note, some dye may run during the first wash. With age, your garment color will fade slightly to reflect a lifetime of love.
