CLEANING

We recommend that our fabrics are to be spot cleaned only. We do not advise that they be dry cleaned and will not take responsibility if they are damaged in the process.

All gold foil fabrics and pillow covers are not to be ironed. If you MUST iron, please cover the fabric with a sheet or a towel.


PILLOW INSERTS


CWD prefers overstuffed down inserts for all her pillows & projects.  To achieve an overstuffed look- we recommend buying pillows an inch bigger than the pillow cover. Down inserts can be found at retailers such as Pottery Barn, Crate & Barrel, West Elm and online. Please be careful when inserting overstuffed down fills as to not cause stress on the zipper and possibly pop the pillow seam.  Alternatively, inexpensive polyester fills can be used as well.
