We advise a wash before wearing. Hand wash in lukewarm water to ensure maximum protection of one's shirt, however, a machine wash at no more than 30 degrees is acceptable.

One should never tumble dry your shirt, always hang dry, and it should be ironed while still slightly damp to ensure best results. Do not bleach or starch your shirt as this will weaken the cotton fibers and cause the fabric to become brittle and tear.

The Fish Shirt was first given as a gift to Nelson Mandela in 1994 by Desré Buirski. She handed it to his bodyguard with a note saying  “Thank you for everything you have done and all the sacrifices you have made for our beloved country”. The design was inspired by Desre’s Father, who used to fish in Cape Town. Nelson Mandela wore this shirt on the 11th of May 1994 to the dress rehearsal of the opening of Parliament.
