MADE TO LAST
Tell Me More products are made to be used and to last. But with a little extra love and care it is easier to preserve the look and feel of your favorite items. Below you can read about some of our different materials and how to take care of them.
Our 100% pure linen items for bed are made with flax fibers from France, where the climate conditions are perfect for growing the plant. Each item is stonewashed which gives them their slightly worn look and soft touch.
The properties of the fiber make linen the perfect temperature-regulator, as the fiber is a natural insulator. It will have the cooling effect during summer nights as well as give you warm comfort during the colder months. This makes it the perfect bedding all through the seasons.
Linen can be washed in high as well as low temperature, air dry or tumble dry. To save energy and water and to allow the textiles to last longer we recommend you to wash your linen in lower temperature, and air them outside in between washes. To keep the soft feeling in your bed linen we recommend you to hang it and let it air dry, when it is almost dry you can tumble dry it for a few minutes.
You will find that the more you use your linen bedding, the softer and better it will become.
Our hemp rugs are made by hand by talented craftsmen. Hand woven hemp rugs are a craftmanship with a long tradition. The hemp thread comes from the bark of the fast-growing plant hemp. It is a material that is known to be dirt repellent and durable.
When the rug is woven and the thread ends, a new thread is tied to the first one, which means that loose thread ends can protrude from the rug. If a loose thread end becomes visible, try to put it down through the carpet or gently cut it with scissors.
Hemp thread can shred fibers in the beginning, it does not affect the quality or appearance of the carpet, but it can be perceived as dirty. To get rid of the excess fibers, vacuum regularly on both sides.
Clean the carpet by vacuum it and remove any stains with a clean dish brush or a damp cloth. To wash the whole carpet, we recommend leaving it to a professional carpet cleaner
All textile products from Tell Me More has an own wash care label. The information on the wash care label shows what washing, tumble dry and ironing temperature the product withstands.
Washing is hard both for the environment and for the textiles. To save energy and water, and to allow the textiles to last longer we recommend washing in a little lower temperature. Blankets, cushion covers, and other decoration textiles is often enough to air outside to get a fresh feeling.
When washing textiles from Tell Me More we recommend liquid detergents without bleaching properties.
Wood is a natural and renewable material. Our cutting boards are made of oak from North Carolina and treated with vegetable oil.
A cutting board is naturally subject to wear and need to be taken care of to keep its appearance and last for a long time. Wash primarily in only water, if needed detergent suffices with a small amount and never wash it in the dishwasher. After cleaning, wipe the cutting board and do not leave it wet.
If the wood starts to feel dry, it can be oiled in with vegetable oil. Take a small amount of oil on a cloth and lubricate the board. Be sure to use an edible oil because the cutting board is for use in cooking and serving food.
We have a wide range of products in handmade stoneware, including tableware such as cups, plates, platters and bowls which are all dishwasher and microwave safe.
The stoneware is fired on a high temperature, which gives strong and durable products. We work with different glazes in order to add different effects to the crafts.
To the tableware collections Taranto, Bastia and Vince, a reactive glaze has been added to the stoneware, which reacts to the high temperatures and gives each piece a unique character, in terms of color and texture. This in turn, creates a vivid and welcoming table setting.
Furthermore, we strive to work as sustainable as possible, for example some of our cups are handmade in accordance with international fair trade principles.
The range of our cotton bed linen are produced in Portugal. Our bed linen collection

The pillowcases and the duvet covers are packed in a dust bag in the same lovely cotton quality. All parts of the cotton bed linen collection can be washed in 60° and are also tumble dry safe.
To preserve and be kind to the environment and the products themselves, it’s often good enough to hang and refresh the textiles outside for a while. We also recommend to wash textiles in lower temperatures when possible - hand wash or 40° machine wash - in order to save energy and water.
