How should I wash my garment?

Vintage garments and fabrics are delicate so I recommend you treat each piece with the unique attention it deserves. I suggest that you consider only hand washing or dry cleaning your precious new piece. Old fabrics are sensitive to our harsh new cleaning products so try to use products sparingly when washing and do not wash your garment too frequently. *Fabled and true cannot be held responsible for washing accidents, so please treat your new piece with lots of love.
