The special wooden details on Marimekko products need consistent care to stay beautiful and in good condition.
Always wash your wooden items quickly by hand and dry thoroughly. Please remember that wooden products cannot withstand soaking.
It’s all about oil
As wood dries, it begins to crack. Therefore, we recommend treating wooden products with light-colored olive oil whenever they start to feel dry or lose their sheen. Let the oil absorb into the wood overnight. If necessary, repeat the treatment the next day.
A cotton product may shrink in the first wash. After washing, reshape the item into its original size. Cotton is best ironed when slightly damp.
