Care for your garments

 Tips to keep your garments in impeccable condition at all times and make your favourite pieces last longer.

 

General Tips

  • Wash whites and light colours separately from dark colours.
  • Always read the care label and washing instructions before wash. 
  • We recommend the use PH-neutral detergents, which is best for delicates. 
  • Turn your garments inside out before wash.
  • High temperatures are always harmful to fabrics. Try to avoid when possible. 

 

Natural Fabrics

Natural fabrics are found in nature and are sourced from vegetable or animal origin. Examples include Linen, Cotton, Wool and Silk.

  • Natural fabrics such as wool, linen and silk will shrink when washed at high temperatures. 
  • Wet wool stretches easily and will lose their shape when spun dry or hung vertically. Gently roll to draw the water out and let it dry naturally, away from direct sunlight and high heat.
  • Knits should be gently folded and kept flat in drawers. Never store knitwear on a hanger, as it will stretch and loose its shape.
  • Always turn knits inside out when washing to avoid excess pilling. If pilling occurs, opt for an electric lint remover to gently shave off pills. Avoid pulling by hand.
  • It is recommended to wash linen either by hand or machine wash separately, with lukewarm or cold water and a mild detergent. 

 

Synthetic Fabrics

Synthetic fabrics are manmade. Examples include Viscose, Modal, Polyester, Acrylic, Polyamide and Elastane.
