Care & Use

 

Table Linens

Bodrum fine linens are woven in Turkey using the  finest quality materials, time-honored and state-of-the-art techniques, with an unwavering commitment to quality. We use the best quality linen, cotton, wool and man-made fibers. Each product includes a label which features fabric content and product care.
Colorfastness
Bodrum uses only the highest quality dyes which completely permeate the fabric to prevent excessive fading.
Laundering
Most of our products are machine washable and dryable. We recommend washing in cold water with mild detergent and drying on the low heat setting. Chlorine bleach is never recommended. Wash like colors together. If the product is stained, we recommend washing immediately to avoid setting the stain. Pre-treat stains with stain removers if necessary. Use a warm iron as needed. Some products require dry cleaning and are labeled as such. Certain collections like Tuxedo, Corte, Insignia, Gala and Iznik should be line dried or tumble dried on air-fluff setting. Other collections can be machine dried but to minimize the need for ironing, they should be taken out while damp.
Shrinkage
Minimal shrinkage is achieved by tightly weaving with high quality yarns, pre-shrinking and finishing the fabric to give it more stability. The published sizes of our products are the sizes prior to laundering. If proper care instructions are followed, shrinkage of up to 3% can be expected. If care instructions are not followed, shrinkage of up to 5% can be expected.
Stonewash
Bodrum Riviera collection is a 100% stonewashed linen fabric. Stonewashed linen is extremely soft and has a wonderful patina. Fabric is dyed during the stonewashing process so slight color differences may occur.

 

Easy Care Mats

Our easy care mats are made of 100% Phthalate-free Vinyl. Phthalates are found in many of the vinyl mats on the market and are known to be hormone-mimicking chemicals, many of which disrupt normal hormonal processes, raising concern about their implications for increased health risks. We are proud to use only phthalate-free vinyl.
Cleaning our vinyl place mats couldn’t be easier: Simply wipe with a damp cloth

Do not put them in dishwasher or immerse in water.
Do not leave on tables for extended periods of time.
If your mats are embroidered, embroidery yarns can be spot cleaned. The sooner the embroidery is treated after a spill, the better.
