CARING FOR YOUR BONITA
Each Bonita garment has individual care instructions. Please follow the care instructions on the garments care label (located inside the garment halfway down the leg) Majority of our garments are loose fitting which allow you not to dry clean after every wear. To refresh and de-crease your Bonita, we recommend steaming OR hanging your Bonita in an airy place. If using an iron on a low silk friendly setting, DO NOT place any heat over the sequins or embellishments. DO NOT machine wash or tumble dry your kaftan.
All Bonita Collective's garments are made with fine fabrics - Please take care when wearing jewellery as they may snag the silk. We recommend that Bonita Kaftan’s should be folded, as the silk could stretch if hung for extended periods. If hanging, be sure to use a relatively thick hanger using rubber bands on each end of the hanger (to keep the kaftan in position whilst hung and to avoid stretching of silk).
Bonita Collective is well known for it's embellished garments & details, which are applied individually by hand in India. Each garment is unique with no two the same. With wear, some sequins and beading may come off. Please be careful when wearing your Bonita, as we may not be able to provide sequins and beads for mending purposes if damaged. If you have any questions regarding our embellishments please email: email@example.com
DRY CLEANING YOUR BONITA
When dry cleaning your Bonita, please take it to a trusted, specialty dry cleaner. Our garments are very delicate and must be cleaned in the appropriate solvent. Due to the embellishments used on majority of our garments, we DO NOT recommend that dry cleaners use heat on the sequins/beading/embellishments.
Bonita Kaftan's are one size fitting all. That means, that all of our kaftans are free-flowing by nature, and designed to fit all shapes and sizes. Being one size fitting all, enables you to style and wear your kaftan in various ways. We offer two different lengths in some styles - short and long. Our short length, is 90cm & our long length is 136cm. Generally, our short length comes just below the knees, and our long length comes to around the ankle region. For all other Bonita Collective styles, we go by Australian sizing. Size charts can be found under > Customer Service > Sizing.
We have made the difficult decision to cease the wholesale operation of our business in Australia (meaning we will no longer have Stockists - for now). We are wonderfully lucky to have a loyal and growing customer base (i.e. you!) where we are now choosing to direct our full efforts. We are working hard to make our online store an impeccable buying experience and will continue to supplement this with regular pop-up stores all across the country (and afar!). We still wholesale internationally.
For all all international wholesale enquiries, please contact: firstname.lastname@example.org & email@example.com
