COLLECTION GARMENT CARE TIPS
What is the best way to wash
my Tallulah & Hope garment?
Plain Coloured kaftans
These have been dyed to
our specific colour tones and this process has created sensitivity in
the fabric. Our Classic Long, Classic Short and Chiton kaftan in marine black (actually a very, very dark green) and the Classic Long and
Chiton in teal MUST BE DRY CLEANED to avoid shrinkage.
All our printed kaftans can be hand-washed or dry-cleaned. It is advisable to wash your kaftan in cool water and
iron whilst a little damp – they also drip dry very well. Do not wash
in hot temperatures as this may cause the kaftan colours to alter and
the material to shrink. Do not use strong detergent or bleaching
Made from 100% crepe de chine, we advise hand-washing in lukewarm water and allow to drip-dry. Warm iron.
Our Hooded Cape Poncho and our Circle Cape Poncho are
Cotton Pocket Poncho
soft ponchos are 100% cotton and each one is handmade.
Due to this there may be very slight differences between garments. We
recommend a maximum 40 degrees hand-wash. Do not wring but pull to
shape and dry flat on a towel. They can also be dry-cleaned.
Pareos and vintage Ascher scarves
Are all 100% cotton and will
machine wash very happily at 40 degrees and soften beautifully with use
100% cotton voile and
machine washable at 40 degrees.
be cleaned and cared for using a suede brush or sponge to remove marks
and raise the pile.
is the best size for me?
Most of our kaftans and all our ponchos
are one size and have been carefully designed to feel relaxed, easy to
wear and luxurious. The cut, style, drape and materials mean that our
ponchos and kaftans will comfortably fit women between sizes 8 – 14.
and Chiton kaftans
Hero and Chiton kaftans come in one size
only. With the unique addition of your Tallulah & Hope scrunchie
our Chiton and Hero kaftans can be ruched, cinched or tied to optimise
your body shape.
Classic Long and Classic Short kaftans
Classic Long and Short kaftans come in two sizes; S/M (will fit 8/10/12) and M/L (will generously fit a 14). Please
see the size guide below to help find the best kaftan for you.

These are very simple, elegant
garments and look their best if the size and fit
are kept generous. If you are between a size 12 and 14 opt for a
M/L, or a size 12 on top and a size 14 on the bottom half go for the
larger size, M/L.
Alternatively you can measure both your bust
and hips and use the largest measurement to select the correct kaftan.
- Measuring bust: place the tape measure under your arms, across
your shoulder blades and over the fullest part of your bust. Remember
to breathe out first.
- Measuring hips: measure around the fullest part of your bottom at
the top of the leg, at about 20cm/8 “ below your natural waist.
Do you have any packing tips?
To minimise creases
and protect your Tallulah & Hope purchase when travelling we
strongly advise you retain the tissue your garments arrived in and use
it to wrap your kaftan/ponchos in when packing your suitcase.

unsightly marks and stains.

‘peg marks’ on the shoulders.
