When you purchase new clothing or fabric in Bali it is often not colorfast and needs to be set properly and washed separately from existing clothing.  We have many years of working with Indonesian handmade fabrics and will be happy to properly set the fabrics for you to assure they are color safe when you bring them home. If you have any questions please ask.

If you have items requiring dry cleaning we are happy to send them out to our recommended dry cleaners for an additional charge.
