In 2010, designer Ellen Van Dusen launched Dusen Dusen, a womenswear line known for its bold, original prints on versatile, wearable silhouettes. Each season, the Dusen Dusen collection is developed and inspired by fine art, commercial and naïve design, as well as the brain's reaction to color, movement, and contrast. In 2015, the brand expanded with the launch of Dusen Dusen Home, a textile and home goods line that includes bedding, throws, pillows, and towels. Ellen Van Dusen was born and raised in Washington, DC and currently resides in Brooklyn, NY with her dog, Snips.

Care Instructions

Towels: Gentle machine wash cold and tumble dry low. Do not bleach. New towels may lint at first, but will diminish after 1-2 washes. Avoid using cleaners that contain Benzoyl Peroxide Retinol, Alpha Hydroxy acids or Hydrogen Peroxide as these can cause color damage. If a loop is pulled, simply cut the thread.

Bathrobes: Gentle machine wash cold and tumble dry low. Avoid using cleaners that contain Benzoyl Peroxide Retinol, Alpha Hydroxy acids or Hydrogen Peroxide as these can cause color damage. Separate the tie from the bathrobe loops and wash with like items, avoiding items with hooks. If a loop is pulled, simply cut the thread.

Bedding + Coverlets: Gentle machine wash cold and tumble dry low. Hot iron as needed. Bedding softens with every wash. Do not bleach. 

Dog Beds: We recommend spot cleaning, and this can be used on tougher stains. Wash bed cover alone and inside out in cold water. Hang to dry.  

Throws: Gentle machine wash cold, and tumble dry on low or air dry to best preserve the color, size and feel of your throw. Warm iron if needed. Do not bleach.

Pillows: Spot clean only with a damp white cloth, to avoid snagging the embroidery or staining the fabric. Air dry. We recommend this for tougher stains.

Dish Towels + Napkins: Gentle machine wash cold and tumble dry low.

Placemats: Machine wash cold and lay flat to dry. Spot clean as needed.

Oven Mitts: Gentle machine wash cold, and short tumble dry on low.
