Why is the colour of the product received different from the colour of the product shown on the website?
We always try to do our best to display the product colour as accurately as possible. However, the colours of the products visualised on the website could appear to be slightly different from the original as the actual colours you see depend on the resolution of your monitor screen, and also due to the strong studio lighting used.

What are the product care instructions?
Due to the nature of the diverse fabrications of products imported by The Little Affair, handwashing in cold water is encouraged for all apparels. Colour may transfer onto other garments. Do take note whenever necessary. Do not soak. Ironing with low to medium heat is encouraged.
