Q&A: What's Lavato?
If you've been into the shop or poked around the website, you may have noticed that a handful of our collections include the word "lavato" in their name. If you're wondering what on earth that means, you're not alone. The answer, luckily, is a simple one: "lavato" is the Italian word for washed, and thus all of our collections touting "lavato" in their moniker are made with pre-washed fabrics.
Pre-washing the fabric serves a few purposes. Firstly, it helps to pre-shrink the items, making the dimensions you take home truer to what the dimensions of the pieces will be after a few more washes. Secondly, pre-washing the fabrics adds a slightly rumpled "lived-in" look, offering the casual simplicity so popular in bedroom design these days. You'll notice all of our fuss-free linens fall under the lavato umbrella. Lastly, pre-washing the fabrics gets the ball rolling on softening up those fibres.
