A GUIDE TO MORE SUSTAINABLE CLOTHES CARE
We recommended our textiles be washed 40°C on a delicates program.
Hand-painted limited collection, tulle & silk in extra delicate washing program on 30 degrees or better hand-wash if possible :-)
Turn garment inside out before washing.
Do not use fabric detergents which contain bleach.
Avoid dry cleaning where possible. Most dry cleaning methods have a harmful effect on the environment.
To avoid having to iron your laundry, remove the clothes from the washing machine quickly, give them a shake and hang them up on a drying rack to reduce wrinkles and creases.
COTTON - comfortable and versatile, easy to wear and care for, if worn and treated with care, will last for a long time.
VISCOSE - is a semi-synthetic material containing natural fibres from wood pulp treated with chemicals. It has a silky appearance and feel and has the ability to breathe like to cotton.
LINEN - is a textile made from the fibres of the flax plant it is valued for its exceptional coolness and freshness in hot weather.
SILK - is a natural material which absorbs moisture, which makes it cool in the summer and warm in the winter. It is a delicate fabric that might need extra care.
TULLE - is a lightweight, very fine netting. It can be made of various fibres, including silk, nylon, and rayon. Tulle is most commonly used for ballet tutus.
WOOL - natural fibre, where possible, avoid washing wool garments; in most cases simply airing the garment is enough to freshen it up. Wash wool by hand or using the recommended washing machine programme. Use a mild detergent free from bleaching agents and enzymes. Remember that wool can become matted when worked too hard, and can shrink in sharp changes of temperature.
