All fabrics are washed prior to sewing
Do you know how many dangerous chemicals (such as formaldehyde, dioxin, etc.), dyes, pesticides and insecticides are present in new fabrics? Many studies say that an average of 25% of the weight of new fabric is purely added chemicals.
At Accoutrement, we care deeply about pets’ health and we pre-wash all the fabrics using environmentally safe products in order to:
Remove the chemicals.
Remove the chemicals’ smell.
Remove the excess dyes, so the bandanas won’t leave a discoloration on the pets’ coat.
Make sure our bandanas don’t create health issues for people and their pets, and that they don’t aggravate allergies.
Prior to cutting and sewing our bandanas, here are the steps that we take with the new fabrics:
Soak the fabric for 2 hrs in warm water with high-end Persil detergent.
Wash the fabric in warm water (30 minutes cycle).
Tripe rinse the fabric (50 minutes cycle) - we use a tiny bit of fabric softener for static control and softness.
Dry the fabric.
Iron the fabric with a rotary iron - no added starch or any other products are used once washed.
This whole process ensures a color stable product and color fastness (won’t bleed or fade).
You can click here to find out more details about chemicals in new fabrics, but if you want to really read more about the subject, please do a search in any web browser with “chemicals in new fabrics” or any other similar questions, the search will bring up numerous studies and articles.
How to tie the bandanas
IMAGE 1 - In order to take full advantage of the reversible bandana’s beauty, you can roll the top of the bandana twice on itself to show the backing at the top for contrast. Although, you don’t have to, and can use the full length of the bandana - how to tie them will be the same as explained below.
IMAGE 2 - You can just bring the snaps together and simply tie the bandana this way.
IMAGE 3 - You can do one wrap-around knot and then bring the snaps together for a secure closure. If just one wrap-around knot is too loose for your pet’s neck, then do two wrap-around knots and secure with the snaps.
At Accoutrement, we care about the environment and we use the fabric to it's full capacity, with less than 1% cutting wastes. That is why we only offer 2 sizes, but they fit the smallest dogs to large breeds.
Most fabrics are 100% cotton, but some are a poly-blends where cotton is the main fiber.
The specific origin of the fabrics is unknown, although probably mostly from Asia, but we purchase all our fabrics from main suppliers in the USA.
We originally wash them in warm water, so that can absolutely be repeated, although cold water is best to preserve the colors of the fabric over time.
Wash in normal cycle.
Dry in low or regular heat, or hang dry.
Can be iron at maximum heat.
Selection and inventory
We will add a lot of new products on a regular basis, so please join our mailing list to stay informed (subscription form available at the bottom of any pages on our website).
We are starting with small quantities and we will grow with you once we know what you like, based on your feedback and purchasing trends.
There is no guarantee that the same print will be available in the future once it is sold out.
If at some point we can't keep up with the demand, we're already aligned to outsource the sewing to a small manufacture downtown Los Angeles, but all the fabrics will always be washed!
