How to Care for Linen

Linen, the exquisite fabric used in our kimonos, not only exudes timeless elegance but also embodies our commitment to sustainability. Crafted from the natural fibers of the flax plant, linen is a truly eco-friendly choice.

At Atelier Mizuni, we prioritise sustainability at every step of our production process. From sourcing organic linen to partnering with skilled artisans, we ensure that our linen kimonos are not only beautiful but also ethically and environmentally responsible.


We recommend seeking professional dry cleaning to preserve the kimono's original form. Alternatively, hand wash your kimono in cool or lukewarm water using a mild detergent specifically designed for delicate fabrics. Gently swirl the garment in the water, being careful not to rub or wring it. Rinse thoroughly until the water runs clear. 


After washing, gently squeeze out any excess water without twisting or stretching the fabric. Lay the kimono flat on a clean, dry towel and reshape it to its original form. Avoid direct sunlight and heat sources during the drying process to prevent colour fading and fabric damage. Allow it to air dry naturally. 


Steam ironing linen is an excellent way to maintain its natural texture and achieve a wrinkle-free look. When using a steam iron, ensure the linen is slightly damp by misting it with water or using a steam function on the iron. Alternatively, iron your kimono on low to medium heat using a pressing cloth or a clean cotton fabric placed between the iron and the garment. 


When not wearing your kimono, store it in a cool, dry place away from direct sunlight to prevent colour fading and fabric deterioration. Folding it neatly or hanging it on a padded hanger will help maintain its shape and prevent wrinkles. 

It's important to note that linen is a natural fabric with its own unique characteristics. It may exhibit slight variations in texture, colour, and weave, adding to its individual charm and character. Embrace these subtle irregularities as a testament to the authenticity and natural beauty of linen.

By caring for your linen garment according to our guidelines, you contribute to the longevity of your kimono and further reduce its environmental footprint.

Together, let us celebrate the beauty of linen and make conscious choices that support the well-being of our planet.
