Little myrtle 品牌故事 Brand's story ＆ 商品問與答 Q & A
妳好！我們是 Dana 和 Hayley
我們想與您分享一點我們的家，所以 Little Myrtle 誕生了。
Hi! We are Dana and Hayley - two women/wives/mothers/time poor/creative/energetic/designers whom have lived and worked all over the world.
We know what it’s like to have family in different country codes and friends we rarely see, to move (too many times) and have to make these houses our homes. That special place when you open the door that’s yours. All yours. A safe, happy, breathe easy abode.
We wanted to share a little bit of our home with you and so Little Myrtle was born.
Why Little Myrtle 小桃金孃
海莉 (Hayley) 住在一個又一個城市叢林中（並且愛他們中的每一個），但想念她在澳大利亞的家。海洋、我們的生活方式、自由、家庭和可能性。
我們的棉花由 GOTS 認證的有機棉製成，這意味著它是合乎道德的，這使我們的產品系列為一個讓我們所有人更快樂、更健康的地球做出了貢獻。
它由最高等級的 GOTS 認證有機棉製成。我們確保我們的紗布不含化學物質，這使得這種自然透氣的面料更加奢華。
The lemon myrtle is a native Australian plant and holds a special place for us.
Dana lived in the Torres Strait Island and the Kimberley. In a tent in the bush for four years. Comfort came to hold a different meaning. It wasn’t about the weekly food drop or a bed as many know it. Comfort came to mean the scent of the bush, the colour of the sky, the rivers and their depth.
Hayley lived in one urban jungle after another (and loved every one of them,) but missed her Australian home. The ocean, our way of life, freedom, family and possibility.
Myrtle symbolises fertility, peace, courage, love and youth - and we could all use a little of that. So, we bring a little Australian comfort from our home into yours. Decor, baby and kids’ wares, design and fashion. Just a Little Myrtle.
Our cotton is made from GOTS-certified organic cotton, which means it is ethically made and that makes our range contribute to a planet that is happier and healthier for us all.
Designed and made with love, our pieces are carefully considered to breach the gap of time and last for years to come.
It is made from the highest grade GOTS certified organic cotton. We have made sure that our gauze is chemical free, which makes this naturally breathable fabric even more luxurious.
Q & A紗布有什麼特點，為什麼要買？
紗布是一種輕質材料，通常被稱為平紋細布。它是一種鬆散的棉織物。我們選擇使用 100% 經 GOTS 認證的有機棉。我們的紗布面料有 2、4 或 8 層薄薄的紗布，每一層都用細線小心地連接到下面的一層。正是這些線在洗滌和乾燥後給我們帶來了美麗的皺紋效果。它是一種透氣的紡織品，但層疊時非常保暖 - 所以全年都可以使用它。
我們會說不要。它由最高等級的 GOTS 認證有機棉製成。如果您使用漂白劑或任何其他合成清潔劑，它會影響紗布纖維的不含化學物質的性質，也可能會剝奪它們的柔軟度。
最後，我們不建議將任何東西（例如乾燥球）和紗布一起扔進烘乾機。這些可能會使您的紗布失去柔軟度，我們不希望這樣。請注意，Little Myrtle 對您的商品在處理、清洗或以其他方式投入使用後出現的障礙或任何其他損壞概不負責。
Why is my product I purchased not crinkled like the ones in your photos?
What are the qualities of gauze and why should I buy it?
Gauze is a lightweight material often referred to as muslin. It is a loosely woven cotton fabric. We have chosen to use 100% certified GOTS organic cotton. Our gauze fabric has either 2, 4 or 8 thin layers of gauze and each layer is carefully attached to the one below with small threads. It is these threads that give us that beautful crinkle effect once they're washed and dried. It is a breathable textile but so warm when layered - so go ahead and use it all year long.
This is an easy one! Just throw them in the wash (don't forget to check washing instructions) and dry them. We suggest putting them straight into the wash as it helps the open weave to close and there's less chance of damage to the material. We suggest reading the postcard with washing instructions that we sent you.
Why has my gauze item shrunk?
It's meant to! That's the beauty of this fabric. It gets softer and crinklier with age and use - kind of like what we don't want as humans but definitely want with our gauze.
How do I keep my GOTS certified organic cotton as good as when I got it?
With use it actually just gets better. Please follow the Care Guide on our website or have a look at the postcard we sent you - it has the info there as well!
Can I bleach it?
We would say don't. It's made from the highest grade of GOTS certified organic cotton. If you use bleach or any other synthetic cleaning agent it will affect the chemical free nature of the gauze fibres and may also strip away their softness.
How can I protect my gauze in the wash?
Gauze is a loose, open weave, it can snag if it gets caught on something. Please note that Little Myrtle cannot be held responsible for snags or any other damage to your goods once they have been handled, laundered, or have otherwise entered into use. To protect your item from getting snagged during laundering, wash and dry without items that have zippers, hooks, or anything that could catch on the fibers. You might also put your gauze item in a mesh wash bag for washing and drying. Be sure that the wash bag is large enough so that that item isn't tightly bunched up. This allows water and detergent to flow through the fabric in the washing machine, and air to circulate in the dryer.
Lastly, we do not recommend throwing anything like a drying ball in the dryer with your gauze. These have the potential to strip your gauze of its softness and we wouldn't want that.
How do I fix a snag in my gauze?
A needle and thread can fix the snag. Take a threaded needle then knot the thread to the loop of the snag. Use the attached needle and thread, pull the snag through the back of the fabric. This will hide it inside the layers of gauze. Once you pull the needle and thread through to the back of the fabric, snip the sewing thread short enough so that it’s hidden inside the fabric. I got my mum to help me with this. I also blamed her for not teaching me how to sew.
