Material and care guide

WASHING YOUR ITEMS

Each material is unique and must be carefully cleaned, so we advise you to follow these golden rules for cleaning:

1- Do not wash your items too often, especially jeans and knitwear.
2- Always sort whites from coloured clothes to avoid unpleasant surprises.
3- Turn the clothes inside out.
4- Do not wash clothes above 30°C and household linen above 60°C.
5- Use a net for delicate clothes, lace for example.
6- Do not put silk, viscose or wool in the machine.

Every item has a care symbol on its page to show you how to look after it.

DRYING AND IRONING

Ideally you should always air dry your clothes rather than tumble dry them if you want them to last longer.
Also avoid exposing your clothes directly to sunlight when they dry.

When ironing, always go by the instructions on the label. Please note that some fabrics like viscose don't go well with steam!

Good to know: it isn't a good idea to iron soiled clothes as the stains or marks may become permanent!

STORING YOUR CLOTHING

Before putting your clothes away, make sure they are well washed, dried and ironed. We advise you to fold knit items and to put woven items on clothes hangers.
Use good quality wooden hangers and not wire ones if you don't want to ruin your items. Make sure your clothing is well spaced out so your wardrobe stays aerated.

Tip: Moths love natural materials (wool, cotton, and silk) so if you want to repel them, try strong fragrances like lavender, rosemary and cedarwood. Aerate your wardrobe well, shake your clothes occasionally and hoover up dust!
