Product Care

Gorky Pottery-  The pottery should be cared for as a work of art.  They are not dishwasher safe or microwavable.  Wash with soapy water and rinse.  Dry immediately. 

Fine Inlaid Wood-  These food-safe mango wood pieces are sealed and therefore do not need to be oiled. Simply wipe them with a damp cloth. Due to the crevices from the inlay we recommend placing a barrier between non-solid or "wet" food and the surface of the piece. 

Sculpture-  Our sculptures are hand crafted and cast with ground stone in the USA. These craftsman apply the finish by hand, therefore the finish is water soluble. Use a dry cloth to gently clean. Do not immerse in water. 

Fine Linens-  Our Dacron and Polyester fabrics are machine washable, gentle or hand wash cycles recommended. Line dry and steam iron on low setting while damp on underside. Fabric will retain crispness, therefore does not require starching.

Our lace fabrics and tapestry runners are dry clean only.
