HOW DO I CARE FOR UNIFORM HANDMADE PIECES?

Linen or Hemp + Organic Cotton

Machine wash on gentle in cold water with like colours, or hand wash.  Hang or lie flat to dry. Iron if desired. The best way to break linen in is to sleep in it! It will become softer and more lived in over time. Embrace the wrinkles and imperfections.

Raw Silk

Dry clean or hand wash in cold water and hang or lie flat to dry. Machine wash on delicate in a delicate bag and tumble dry on low heat for a lived-in look. Please note that machine washing can cause fading and milk streaking in raw silk garments. Wash sparingly.

Note: All Uniform pieces are pre-washed/shrunk prior to cutting and sewing, so will maintain their shape and fit with proper care

WHY DO I HAVE TO WAIT SO LONG FOR MY ORDER?

All Uniform garments are made by hand to order by a single, dedicated, and extremely talented home-based seamstress. Fabrics are washed, ironed, cut and sewn with love and intention by her two hands. This allows for unique fabric and design combinations, frequent exciting changes and additions to the collection, and custom orders. It's known as "slow fashion", and it's amazing.
