Fabric and Garment Care & Size Guide

Care Instructions

We advise all garments are washed before use. Please wash garments and items at the recommended temperature and follow all care instructions. See labels inside garments and items for directions.

To help ensure you get the most from your purchases, please follow the simple care guidelines.

Modern detergents can now achieve excellent results at low temperatures. Please select a non-biological detergent containing no optical whiteners, bleaching agents or enzymes that can cause colours to fade and can also damage fabrics. We suggest you use colour safe detergents to keep your bed linen looking lovely and bright.

If hand washing, do not place the detergent directly onto the laundry, but ensure liquids are dispersed and powders completely dissolved before immersing the items to be washed. Please remove items from the washing machine promptly and reshape before drying. We do not advise the use of tumble drying our garments and items.

We suggest when drying the baby sleep bag that you lay it flat to dry.

There may be minimal shrinkage. All Natural fibres will shrink and this shrinkage is allowed for in the sizing of our garments.

Please handle fine materials with care. We would advise you to hand wash the organic cotton bonnets.

Please be aware that all fabric colours can vary with printing and may look slightly different from the photos on the website. We try our very best to show you the actual colours, but variations do occur.

It is VERY important that all items and garments are kept away from fire.

We want you to get the very best out of your Bumble & Ava garments and bed linen.


Bumble & Ava have produced the very finest SS19 collection. We have taken great care to source the best fabrics.

Some of this season’s collection is made from the coolest block printed cotton. Due to the fact the fabric is hand blocked, there may be some slight variations in the fabrics.

The stripe fabric is also printed by hand (this time screen printed in Nairobi) and therefore there may be some slight variations in the print.
