CARE GUIDE

Welcome to our Care Guide. Learn here how to care for your garments. First of all, it's super important to always follow the care labels. But as we want you to love and care for your clothes for years to come, here are some more tips and tricks for caring for all your garments, helping you make them look better and last longer. 

-

WOOL CARE // Most of us have probably ruined a sweater or two and so caring for wool has a bad rep for being a hassle, but we respectfully disagree. Wool care is misunderstood. In general, wool garments require much less care, the garment practically takes care of itself because of the inherent qualities of wool. Wool as a fibre keeps itself clean naturally. This means you shouldn’t have to wash your woollies as often and you can simply air them out. 

Hand wash / Turn wool clothes inside-out / Choose a gentle cycle (if you have a modern washing machine, you can use a handwash or wool cycle). / Wash in lower temperatures / Use a dedicated detergent / Avoid traditional dry cleaning / Do not keep these garments on hangers (fold and store on a shelf)

-

CASHMERE CARE // Cashmere is one of the softest and most luxurious forms of wool, characterized by the fineness of the fibers, which are almost silky. It’s considered one of the most high-end fibers, as pure cashmere can be very expensive due to the involved production process, where the fibers are separated by hand from the molted coats of goats.

Hand wash / Turn wool clothes inside-out / Choose a gentle cycle (if you have a modern washing machine, you can use a handwash or wool cycle). / Wash in lower temperatures / Use a dedicated detergent / Avoid traditional dry cleaning / Do not keep these garments on hangers (fold and store on a shelf). 

-

MOHAIR CARE // Mohair is truly an exquisite fiber. Like most luxury fibers, mohair requires proper handling, but when treated in the correct way it can last for a very long time. Follow these simple guidelines and your mohair, whether knitted or in fabric form, will provide many years of enjoyment.

Hand wash / Turn wool clothes inside-out / Choose a gentle cycle (if you have a modern washing machine, you can use a handwash or wool cycle). / Wash in lower temperatures / Use a dedicated detergent / Gently squeezed out – never pull or wring / Avoid traditional dry cleaning / Do not keep these garments on hangers (fold and store on a shelf).

-

COTTON CARE // Cotton is the most used natural fabric worldwide. There are many types of cotton fabrics available and many uses for it. To be safe, we suggest you have a look at the care instructions for the specific item before washing. As a natural fibre, cotton is prone to shrinkage - the looser/more elastic the knit, the more potential shrinkage. Unlike wool, cotton does not have the natural anti-bacterial and odour-resistant properties, which means cotton needs to be washed a little more often. These tips will help you make your garments look better and last longer.

Machine wash (we suggest to machine washing at 30°C) / When washing colored garments, we recommend turning them inside out before washing / Certain items such as underwear or bed linen need to be washed at higher degree (40°C or above) / Stain Treatment (if you get a stain on your garment, treat the stain straight away with a stain solution suitable for cotton) / Dry Naturally (avoid traditional dry cleaning).

-

LYOCELL CARE // Lyocell is a 100% biodegradable cellulosic fiber crafted from wood pulp derived from responsibly harvested FSC-certified wood pulp. It can be rendered in different textures, but the fabric is widely known for its superior breathability, silk-like softness, lustrous sheen, and durability. While lyocell is generally easy to care for, there are a few things you need to keep in mind in order to enjoy your garments for as long as possible. 

Hand wash / Choose a gentle cycle (if you have a modern washing machine, you can use a handwash or wool cycle). / Pretreat stains (if you get a stubborn stain on your garment, wash the stain straight away under cold water and apply just a dab of delicate detergent to rub it out gently) / Use a dedicated detergent / Gently squeezed out – never pull or wring / Avoid traditional dry cleaning / Do not keep these garments on hangers (fold and store on a shelf) / Avoid overwashing / Dry Naturally ( avoid traditional dry cleaning).

-

DENIM CARE //Jeans is the most common and hard used garment in our wardrobes. There are lots of schools when it comes to denim care and there are no right or wrong answers, mostly, it depends on personal preference and what kind of look you want to achieve with your denim.

Wash less (wash once every 10 wears at most to maintain fit and prevent too much “rebound") / Wash cold (protects against fading and shrinking) / Turn your jeans inside out / Line dry (dryers are the natural enemy of jeans).

-

LINEN CARE //  Linen is a wonderful natural material that grows with a minimal impact on our planet. Linen clothing is often associated with summer, much due to the exceptional coolness and freshness the fabric is able to maintain in hot and humid weather. Unlike wool, linen does not have the natural anti-bacterial and odour-resistant properties, which means cotton needs to be washed a little more often. The linen fiber is very strong, but garments made out of linen still need proper care. 

Machine wash (we suggest to machine washing at 30°C) / When washing colored garments, we recommend turning them inside out before washing / Wash linen on low cycle to prevent shrinkage, creases and wrinkling / Stain Treatment (if you get a stain on your garment, treat the stain straight away with a stain solution suitable for cotton) / Dry Naturally (give the garment a good shake after wash and a light pull in the sleeves, plackets and side seams to remove creases. Hang drying linen garments reduces their wrinkles and their general creasing, while tumble drying will make the garments shrink) / Keep the garments hanging in your wardrobe.
