It is not necessary to wash your fabric before its first use, nor throughout its life.
However, we recommend that you ventilate and remove dust, as well as protect it from repetitive rubbing (for example, avoid putting a throw on a seat) and animals (which could damage it).
If you stain your fabric, we recommend taking it to the dry cleaners for a dry wash (making it clear to them that it is a wool product).
It is therefore essential to show, when you drop off your blanket or duvet at the dry cleaners, the white care label (sewn under the red Brun de Vian-Tiran label on one side of the article), so that it is properly taken care of.
You can find all our advices on our Maintenance Guide.
REFINED & CLASSIC "DRAP DAMIER"
Drap Damier, which was used to make the gaiters or "bas herbages" of the fishermen and paveurs of Marseilles, is the oldest fabric produced by our factory. For more than two centuries, it has been made by felting woollen cloth in the water of the Sorgue river, using an unchanged method. In the past, 'black' wools were used for their dark stripes. Still spun, woven and felted in our workshops today, it adorns the saddlecloths seen on horses throughout the Camargue. For the creation of accessories and for professionals, in addition to the traditional brown, we have created a capsule collection of colours. These are now available for private customers.
