Recommended Cleaning Methods

Care Instructions
Periodically vacuum with a brush attachment to ensure lasting beauty. With proper care and maintenance, Natural Shades should last for years. Do not use water, solvents, or abrasive solutions to clean the shade.

 

Colour Variation
LEVOLOR Natural Shades are created using natural products. By nature, no two strands of grass, bamboo or reeds are exactly the same, making every shade truly unique. Slight colour, grain and texture variations should be expected and cherished for their unique beauty.

 

Stretching and Shrinking
Natural woven fabric will be affected by temperature and humidity. Shipping and handling may cause a slight change in shade lengths, and slight shrinkage, stretching and warping may occur over time.
NOTE: Material stretching may be more noticeable on inside mounts.
