kese care, use, and tips


Using your kese for the first time

  1. If you are using a body kese, wear it on your hand. Body keses will shrink to fit. 
  2. Wash your kese with hot water and soap. 
  3. Rinse the kese completely with water only, until there is no soap left. Your Kese is now ready for use!

How to use your kese

  1. Only use your kese with water.
  2. Make your shower/bath water as warm as your body can handle. The steamier and more humid the better.
  3. In 3 to 15 minutes when your skin is soft, put the kese on.
  4. Gently scrub your body with long movements, from down to up. Let the kese do it's magic.
  5. Clean your kese by hand, with warm water only, removing the dirt and dead skin. Let it dry. Do not machine wash or dry.
  6. Gently soap and rinse your body. A shower sponge is great for this (such as a sea sponge or konjack sponge).
  7. Wrap and pat your body dry, then moisturize.

Kese Tips

  • Sweating¬†naturally helps remove impurities from your skin and prepares your body for using a kese. So exercise, get in a sauna, or crank up the water temperature in the shower.
  • Only use your kese with water¬†to keep it in good condition and working effectively. Avoid contact with soap, shampoo, body lotion, etc.
  • Use gently.¬†Your skin should be soft enough for you to exfoliate easily, without heavy pressure.
  • For hygiene, keses should be¬†personal.
  • Use your Kese¬†once every 10-15 days, daily use is not recommended.
  • To help with¬†cellulite, you can use your kese more regularly if your skin can tolerate it. Exfoliation works on cellulite appearance by making skin smoother, brightening dull skin, tightening skin, and may assist with lymphatic drainage.
  • Drink plenty of water¬†before and after your kese experience to keep your body hydrated and healthy.

pestemal care & use

Before first use

Soak¬†your peŇütemal in cool water for at least 24 hours, and then wash it normally. This helps increase the absorbency of your peŇütemal. You only need to do this¬†once~

Washing¬†your peŇütemal

  • Machine wash on a regular cycle.
  • Do not use fabric softeners - don‚Äôt worry, peŇütemals become softer the more you use them.
  • Tumble dry on low or hang dry¬†to prevent shrinkage. ‚Ä®Tumble drying will give your peŇütemal more softness.

Using your pestemal

PeŇütemals are durable, high-quality, smooth, natural products with a beautiful aesthetic. PeŇütemals can be used as towels, scarves, sarongs,¬†blankets, table covers, throws, wall textiles, and more.

handmade headband care

Steam your headband for a quick refresh.

For small marks or dirt, blot (do not rub) your headband with a wet cloth that has a tiny amount of shampoo or delicate fabric detergent, then let dry.

If you ~must~ have a full cleaning, fill your bathroom sink or a small basin with warm water and a dime-sized amount of detergent made for delicate fabrics, or use shampoo. Gently scrub the headband with your fingers to loosen up any grease or build-up. Rinse the headband with clean water then dry on top of a towel. Do not machine wash.
