HI! Thank you for visiting our Care Instructions Page. We know artisanal products may require some special attention to be able to preserve their beauty, and, because of their artisanal nature, they do not include a "care instruction label". This is why we created this page that will hopefully answer all your questions and share recommendations that artisans have shared with us concerning caring for your products. Do not hesitate to reach out to us if you have more questions, we would be glad to help however we can!

Embroidered clothing, face masks, and textiles:

Our recommendation for all artisanal clothing is to hand wash with cold water, turned inside out and lay flat to dry without wringing. If necessary, iron on low with a protective cloth on top of the garment.
If there is a need to machine wash, please do so on a garment bag on delicate settings and only air fluff on dryer machine. 

Pro tip from artisans for Otomí embroidered products:
If, for some reason, there is some color run, boil some water on your stove top and, using tongs being careful not to burn yourself, submerge the piece entirely in it and move it around so that it looses the dye. We've tried it and it works!


Hand wash with warm water, hang to dry or lay flat, do not wring. Optional: iron with starch to achieve a whiter, firmer look. Store in a dry, dark room, preferably in a protective layer such as bag or old cloth.

Woven Aluminum

Clean with a dry white cloth. Store in a dry place, avoiding humid spaces, sunlight, or extreme heat. Not dishwasher safe. DO NOT MICROWAVE!

Parota Tabletops:

Although resistant to everyday use, parota wood is not dishwasher/microwave safe. Clean with dam towel and, only if extremely necessary with mild cleaner and cold water, making sure it dries completely before storing.

Hand Painted Clay tabletops:

Although resistant to everyday use, clay products are not dishwasher/microwave safe. Clean with mild cleaner and cold to warm water and let air dry.

Molcajetes/Volcanic Stone

molcajete is a traditional Mexican version of a mortar and pestle made from volcanic rock perfect for crushing and combining ingredients to make Mexican salsa. This prehispanic tool makes it excellent for kitchen elements such as pulverizing ingredients and grinding spices as necessary as possible, bringing out all flavors from ingredients, and control consistency of dishes. From its porous nature, it is almost impossible to clean thoroughly but, just like a cast iron, this will help transfer over ingredients to the next dish. 

Before you use a new molcajete for the first time, it needs to be cured—i.e. scrubbed of excess debris and sediment from inside the mortar. Smooth out the inside by placing dry uncooked white rice inside the mortar and grinding it with the pestle. Press on the rice making circular motions as you move throughout the inside, including the sides, making your way up. Do this until the rice turns to a powder (rice will turn grey) and discard. Repeat this process until it no longer becomes discolored, approximately 3-4 times, then rinse with warm water. The molcajete is ready to use. Curing does take time and effort but you only have to cure it once and the result will be 100% worth it!

To clean, we suggest using only warm water and a kitchen brush dedicated only to this molcajete if you would like to prevent soap from entering the crevices of the stone and transferring over to your food. If, however, you feel uncomfortable not using soap, please use a mild one. Let air dry. MOLCAJETES ARE NOT DISHWASHER SAFE.

Lovely beautiful blouse

Since I moved to the states I haven't been able to find one of these tops that fit me with this quality. Absolutely beautiful and comfortable in the texas heat.

Exactly what I was looking for.

I ordered the xxl black. I am a size 20 with a 44 bust. It fit perfect with plenty of room to be comfy. I also like my tops to be tunic length and cover my bottom which this does, perfectly.

We are so glad the Mitla Blouse fit you perfect! It's super comfy and beautiful! Thank you so much for your purchase Cheryl, we appreciate your incredible support!

Thank you,

Love the blouse and mask, wore them to mass yesterday for the feast of Guadalupe. Blouse runs a little big, could of gotten a medium but not returning. Going to stitch a dart on each side.

We are so happy to hear you loved your blouse and mask Mary! They do tend to run a little big, we will definitely take note of this, we're very so sorry for the inconvenience! We thank you for the feedback and for your kind words!

Thank you,

Love it!!

I am so pleased with this blouse. It’s beautiful and very well made. It’s long enough to cover my behind, but not too long like a dress, it’s perfect! It’s pretty enough for a casual date night with my husband, or running errands. And it’s so comfortable.

I had initially ordered the x-large, but it fit too big. I’m so happy that they were able to exchange it quickly for a large.

I’m very happy with my purchase!!

Yay!! We are so glad that the small inconvenience was quickly resolved. Thank you so much for your kind words and choosing Lolo! Enjoy your blouse very much!

Thank you,
Manuel Saidi
