"This artwork is conceptualised with a metaphoric representation of our lives - filled with twist and turns but youÃƒÂ¢Ã¢â€šÂ¬Ã…Â¡ÃƒÆ’Ã¢â‚¬Å¾ÃƒÆ’Ã‚Â¶ÃƒÂ¢Ã‹â€ Ã…Â¡ÃƒÆ’Ã¢â‚¬ËœÃƒÂ¢Ã‹â€ Ã…Â¡Ãƒâ€šÃ‚Â¥ve got to hold on and just move and groove right through it.
I wanted to design something interesting with a serene look to it. The colours were influenced by the thought of sea water running through beach sand." - Leo

For machine washing, it is recommended to wash alone and not with other items.
In order to keep the fineness and the length of the fibres of the cotton, the blankets should be machine washed on a gentle cycle at 30° maximum, or cold water is recommended. Do not use fabric softener or bleach, and prefer a gentle spin cycle to avoid twisting or deforming.
Drying of Soft Knitwear
In order to keep their shape and fit, all items should be dried flat on a towel in a shaded area.
Do not tumble dry.
Do not hang dry.
Do not dry in direct sunlight.
Iron softly on the reverse side. It is also highly recommended to apply a damp cloth between the iron and the garment to protect the fibres.
Other Needs of Soft Cotton
Over time, it is possible that the knit will make snags or pilling in certain areas of friction. For this, there are small devices specially designed for clothing care at knit. To make up for the snags, small hooks, very easy to use, exist to remesh the threads of the items. To remove pilling, anti-pilling razors are very effective and do not damage the sublime and softness of the items.
