Furniture
For safety, and to avoid tipping hazards, please anchor your furniture. Unsecured furniture can cause accidents if climbed or leaned on.
 
Bamboo - Indoor use
A simple damp cloth for dusting is enough maintenance.
 
Bamboo - Outdoor use
For outdoor use, the surface may collect mold, but as bamboo is resistant, the mold is only superficial, as the mold will never penetrate inside the bamboo. Mold is very easy to remove from the surface by following below cleaning and washing instructions 1+2. Follow steps 3+4 as well for optimum results. Make sure that your furniture is placed on a dry surface to avoid the legs from absorbing water, and store your bamboo furniture in a dry ventilated environment during the autumn and winter season. We recommend washing outdoor bamboo furniture before every season. Repeat the washing a few times during the season, and do the washing on a sunny day to get the best results.

  1. Use a hard cleaning sponge and/or scouring powder with abrasive effect to remove dirt, stains and possible mold. 
  2. Rinse well with plenty of water to remove all soap and dirt.
  3. Spray with a cleaning product containing chlorine, ammonia or vinegar directly onto the bamboo, leave it on for a while, then rinse well with water and let it dry completely in the sun for optimum results.
  4. For extra treatment in the end of the season – before winter storage – we recommend treating your bamboo with an anti-mildew and mold detergent. Contact your nearest DIY store for the best exterior wood treatment to avoid fungus and mold in a wet and humid winter climate.

Carpets

Frill and Feel Rugs
These carpets are hand-woven with 100% cotton. We recommend that you place a nonslip carpet pad underneath to avoid slipping and mis-coloring of your floor. For indoor use. Dry clean only.
 
Jute Rugs
These carpets are hand-woven with 100% jute. Jute is a hardwearing material produced from vegetable fibers spun into strong threads. We recommend that you place a nonslip carpet pad underneath the carpets. For indoor use. Never shake the carpets, as this can make the threads brake. Dry clean only.

 

Aiayu

Washing is hard on your garment and on the environment. As an environmentally conscious company, Aiayu recommends the following as guidelines to care for your garments, while also caring for the environment.

Cotton:

Machine wash using a cool temperate and environment friendly soap. Do not use bleach. Avoid the tumble dry cycle, and instead air-dry your garment for a fresh look and feeling.

Do not use an iron (if you must, use on the lowest setting, but use at one’s own risk). Washing on a low temperature is a great way to save resources.  

Knits:

Llama wool is a self-cleaning fiber that requires less washing than other materials. Try simply airing your garment for a fresh start. If you do need to wash your garment, we recommend hand washing it with cold water, using high-quality wool soap. Let the garment soak in water for 10-15 minutes. Rinse in cold water. Avoid twisting, pressing or squeezing the water out, and instead let the garment dry flat. If you have a very gentle washing machine it is possible to wash your Aiayu garment in the machine on a wool program in cold water on a low cycle. However washing in the machine is at one’s own risk, as every washer has varying program settings and might damage the knit.
