How to care for Smile Cotton products
Threads on these products are made by twisting cotton fibers. Smile Cotton is made by reversing the twist and creating a layer of air between fibers, resulting in a fluffy, light, soft, cotton texture. Please keep the following points in mind when taking care of products made of this delicate material.
- Turn Smile Cotton products inside out and wash them in a net, using neutral detergent.
- Wash the product alone, and avoid soaking it.
- Washing the product may result in shrinkage and skewing.
Instead of a dryer, lightly wring the product out, then pull it into shape before hanging it to dry.
- Pilling (hair balls that occur due to friction when wearing a garment) is an unavoidable characteristic of the material, and cannot be completely prevented. Instead of picking off any pilling, use a pair of scissors to cut each ball off.
HÄP & CRAFT
HAP is an Old English word meaning good fortune or coincidence. HÄP expresses the thrilling and exciting feeling that something wonderful is going to happen.
Our items are overflowing with consideration like handmade items. It also expresses that we are a brand which is produced in co-creation together with the customers.
We chose the name HÄP & CRAFT with these two concepts in mind.
HÄP & CRAFT believes that precisely because they are children, it is important to let them experience and rear fine quality. All designs and patternmaking originate in Japan. The materials, too, are mostly Japanese ones selected with attention to detail. Pursuing the feeling of comfort in the real sense of the word for everyone regardless of country or age, we offer daily kids wear which will become more loved and cherished the longer it is worn. May HÄP & CRAFT be a companion of everyday smiles and growing sensitivity….
