Mehera Shaw Holiday Pop-Up Shop!

Join us in celebrating the holidays and bringing food to local hungry kids!  Shop is open at the Carrboro Arts Center from 2-5pm, Saturday, December 10th.

We're donating 20% of the proceeds of our Saturday pop-up shop to TABLE to help feed hungry kids, especially at the holidays.  Our holiday market includes great gift items from our women's wear and homewares ranges including hand block printed quilted jackets, nightwear, table linens, aprons, quilts, upcycled accessories/decorations made by our women's development project, carved wood hand blocks for printing/art projects.  In organic cottons and hand block prints, everything is fair trade manufactured by our sister company in Jaipur, India.

TABLE's mission is to provide healthy, emergency food aid every week to hungry children living in Chapel Hill and Carrboro, NC.

Purpose

TABLE serves preschool, elementary, and middle school kids in Chapel Hill and Carrboro. These are children that are not able to go get a job, go to the grocery store, or influence whether their parents take advantage of local social services. We deliver a bag filled with healthy food to local schools, after school centers, non-profits, and low-income housing every week so children have food for weekends and school holidays when they do not have access to their free school meals.

Benefits

• TABLE places healthy food kids need every single week directly into their hands at their school, after school center, or home.

• Kids are able to return to school on Mondays ready to learn.

• Kids suffer from fewer hunger-related health issues.

Fit/Sizing/Care
FIT

Our styles are meant to give room to breath and move.  We use fine tailoring coupled with a relaxed, comfortable fit.

We use a fit guide for each of our styles to provide more information about the fit that was intended.

Slim Fit: a close fit to the body. Regular Fit: a comfortable, relaxed fit with room around the body. Generous Fit: a very loose fit (such as in our oversized blouses) with lots of room around the body for ease of movement.

WASHCARE

All garments have been washed several times during the printing/dyeing and manufacturing process.  

CARE for 100% cotton

We recommend cold water machine wash (up to 30 degrees celsius) with a bio detergent and either tumble dry on low heat or line dry in shade for all of our 100% cotton garments/homewares (except for quilts).  

Iron on reverse side of garment following fabric settings.  

Do not use bleach or stain remover.

Cold water wash and low heat drying or line drying in the shade will increase the life of the garment, prolong the vibrancy of the colors and reduce energy use. Shrinkage on all cottons is minimal, approximately 3%.

Garments/homewares are dyed or printed using AZO free, low-impact, pigment or reactive dyes unless otherwise noted.  These dyes are color-fast, but care should still be taken to wash with like colors to retain the vibrancy of the colors.

CARE for 100% cotton quilts

For quilts with cotton fill, we recommend spot or light surface cleaning only with a damp cloth and mild detergent.  Eco-friendly dry cleaning is also recommended. 

CARE for herbal/vegetable dye items

Vegetable dyes are not colorfast and are specifically marked in the product description.  We strongly recommend that all vegetable dye products be washed once before use in a cold water wash with minimal detergent.  Wash separately. Tumble dry on low heat or line dry in shade.  Iron on reverse side.  Do not use bleach or stain remover.

Please keep in mind that indigo dye does continually fade over time.  This is the nature of true indigo dye and is not a defect, but rather a sign of the 'living' nature of the dye.

CARE for silk and cotton/silk

For our silk and cotton silk garments/homewares, we also recommend gentle cycle machine wash cold water (up to 30 degrees celsius) or delicate hand washing to increase the life of the garment and reduce the environmental footprint from energy use, detergents and water wastage.  

Tumble dry on low heat or line dry in shade.  

Iron on reverse side of garment following fabric settings.

Do not use bleach or stain remover.

Dry cleaning using an eco-friendly service is also recommended.

CARE for linen and cotton/linen

For our linen and cotton linen garments/homewares, we also recommend gentle cycle machine wash cold water (up to 30 degrees celsius) or delicate hand washing to increase the life of the garment and reduce the environmental footprint from energy use, detergents and water wastage.  

Tumble dry on low heat or line dry in shade.  

Iron on reverse side of garment following fabric settings.

Do not use bleach or stain remover.
