Garment Care

RITE OF PASSAGE pieces are made to last a lifetime. To best care for these hand-made garments, we recommend washing by hand or a gentle machine cycle, with cold water and a mild detergent (no fabric softener, please!). Hang garments to dry, and celebrate in the small ritual of tending to the textiles that protect you.
