How do I care for my Kuwa goods?

All Kuwa goods should be hand washed and air dried. Our objects are crafted from 100% protein fibers (silk in this case) and/or 100% cellulose fibers (cotton or linen), so they like to be pampered!

Suminagashi, the type of printmaking utilized in our process, is a surface-level print which means that if not handled with care could fade. Fading can also occur if left in direct sunlight for substantial periods of time. Surface-printed goods are intended to change as you do over the passage of time, enjoy them in their different stages as they evolve.

(Also, def take out the feather pillow insert before washing ur pillow covers!)

I’m allergic to feathers :( Is it possible to get a polyester-filled pillow insert instead?

Sure is! Reach out via email at and we can work that out for you. It may take longer for your finished product to be delivered since all polyester inserts are made-to-order, but it will be worth it.

How quickly will my order ship?
