Fique is a natural rough fiber that requires little maintenance. To wash it simply use a wet rag with little soap and rub it directly. Wash off with wet rag and then dry with a drier cloth. Make sure the fibers are not wet before extending to air dry. This is crucial to avoid mold accumulating. That is it! These items are long lasting and colors will not fade as quick as with other fibers. Avoiding direct sunlight is still recommended for long lasting vivid colors.
