Care Instructions


Dancing Grass textiles are artisan furnishing fabrics, beginning life as original illustrations by Elizabeth Brain & Dancing Grass. From initial sketch to screenprint, every facet of the process is executed by hand. All prints are hand-illustrated and screened on premium quality fabrics.

Our textiles are suitable for a variety of interior decorative soft furnishing and upholstery uses. (Please be mindful they are not technical high-performance fabrics and not suitable for high traffic areas, dirty dogs and red wine!).

The pure, and hand-made nature of the Dancing Grass production process cottons and linens means that the texture and slub of the weave have characteristic irregularities that are intentional, adding to the overall appeal of the finished products, making them truly unique and bespoke items. Degrees of variations of weave, colour and texture will occur from bolt to bolt.  

Our screen printing is carried out by traditional screen printing methods used throughout India and Asia. A printing paste or dye is poured on the screen and forced through its unblocked areas onto the fabric, creating a beautiful painterly and colour rich effect.


In order to ensure your Dancing Grass pieces become long-lasting heirlooms they should not be used outside their intended purpose. All Dancing Grass furnishing Cottons & linens and products are manufactured using our exclusive, premium Cotton & linen base cloth, however they require proper use and thoughtful maintenance in order to guarantee their permanence.

Our textiles can be washed in a gentle machine cycle, in cold or warm water, using a mild detergent. Please do not use any harsh detergents or bleach products. Hand washing and dry-cleaning is also an option. Iron on reverse at medium strenght if required.

UV exposure will degrade all fabrics over time, and therefore your Dancing Grass textiles should be kept out of direct sunlight where possible. Rotating the whereabouts of your items that are exposed to harsh light is also a good idea.

Fabrics should not be scrubbed. We recommend customers contact a specialist cleaner to treat difficult stains, or those hard to deal with accidental stains.
