    "Oh Valentina ... what to tell about you! The perfect length, the most flattering style, lovely comfortable neckline and pockets to boot. The weight of the cotton fabric is such that it will still move and 'flutter' as you walk but won't get blown up too far when it's windy. The same colour sash-style belt draws the waist in but you can still wear it without the belt if you prefer. Our Valentina frock is just a lovely, simple all rounder" - Mel, co-founder

        All our pieces are crafted using low impact dyes - this is wonderful for our planet, however does mean a little extra care is required.

        WASH: Separately for the first 1 - 2 times. You will see a little colour in these earlier washes, so take care to avoid washing with lighter pieces. No need to add salt - all our pieces have been pre-washed, however the mordants in low impact dyes are not as chemically rich as regular dyes.

        DRY: In the shade always. Our low impact dyes will fade much faster if left in the sun.

        DO NOT: Wash in hot water - this will ensure the colour bleeds much more than it should, and your piece will fade faster.
