Caring For Your Garments

We believe long-lasting fashion is key to reducing environmental impact. That’s why we create our collections with carefully considered high-quality materials, to make them last beyond the season. Whether a knitted cardigan or a classic cotton shirt, with a little bit of love and care, you can extend the lifespan of your favourite garments. Unless otherwise stated all our items are machine washable at 30 degrees, please ensure you wash dark colours separately.


Your best friend for the colder days of the year and really low maintenance, a knitted jumper or cardigan is indeed a real wardrobe treasure. You don’t have to wash it often. Most of the time, airing is the best way to take care of your knitwear. And if there is a stain, try to spot clean carefully with a damp cloth before washing.

Wash & Dry
If your knitwear needs a wash, the best option is to choose the wool or delicate cycle at a low temperature. You can also hand wash in lukewarm water. Always remember to avoid rubbing and wringing as it damages the structure of the fibres. Also, remember not all knitwear likes to be tumble dried. Instead, air dries flat on a large towel and carefully pull into shape.

Pilling is a natural process and occurs with all untreated fibres. It’s not a sign of bad quality, the tiny fibre balls are simply caused by friction. You can easily remove them with a special comb or a fabric razor. The good news: over time, pilling will decrease.

Always fold your knitwear and store lying flat as it might lose its shape when stored on a hanger. Make sure to clean your garments before packing them away for a longer time and add some cedar balls or dried lavender sachets to keep moths away.


Cotton Shirt

Cotton, unlike other fabrics, doesn’t possess self-cleaning properties and therefore needs a wash regularly. But it’s worth keeping in mind that if you’ve only worn your favourite shirt just for a few hours and didn’t sweat, perhaps you can skip one round of laundering. Hang to air instead and freshen it up with a spritz of glorious fabric spray.

Wash & Dry
Many cotton garments can be washed at 40 or even 60 degrees. But if your shirt is not very dirty, 30 degrees will easily do. Washing at colder temperatures saves energy and protects the fibres. Also, you keep shrinkage to a minimum (all cotton that is not pre-washed will naturally shrink). Air dry after carefully pulling the shirt into shape and you are good to go.

Maintain & Store
To lower the environmental impact of your cotton garments and enjoy them for longer, a few tricks will help make them stay nice: rotate your selection of shirts, a bit of rest is good for the fabric, and always wash with similar colours.

A stained collar or armpit doesn’t necessarily mean you have to get rid of your favourite shirt. Some classic household tricks like using vinegar against odours or lemon acid against yellow stains often work wonders. And if a long-time shirt-friend really can’t be worn any longer, do not throw it out, but bring to your local textile recycling.


Stretch Trousers

Getting clothing to last is all in how you take care of the fabric once they get dirty. Some fabrics respond well to machine washing and drying while others do not. Many of our trousers are made from Bengaline fabric and they are in the latter group so taking care of it is important if you want those clothes to last.

Wash & Dry
Bengaline fabric is fussier than other materials, so you need to be careful when cleaning your trousers. A general rule of thumb is to avoid any heat when maintaining your bengaline trousers. Hang dry them instead of drying them in the dryer and be very careful if you must iron them.

Maintain & Store
You can machine wash most bengaline fabric items; just check any instructions that come with the garment first. Wash on a low temperature setting as high temperatures can damage this fabric.



Wash jersey using a cool wash temperature if the fabric is not heavily stained. Don’t over-fill the washing machine as this will cause more creases in your clothes and they won’t be cleaned as effectively. Turn embellished or patterned garments inside out and try to avoid mixing bright colours and whites in the wash, as the colours may bleed.

Wash & Dry
It is better not to use a tumble dryer as this can make the fabric shrink. If possible, gently pull your garment into the correct shape and then dry it flat. Alternatively, you can line-dry jersey – but make sure you keep it in its original shape as much as possible. Put tops and dresses on clothes hangers and then hang them on the line: this will also help to remove creases.

Maintain & Store
Jersey fabric items should need very little or no ironing. If you do need to iron them, iron on the wrong side of the fabric using a medium heat setting and steam if necessary.



With its light, airy texture a linen garment keeps you cool and makes you look and feel great through the summer months. And best of all: with just a little bit of care, linen will get softer and more beautiful over time. That’s what we call a real wardrobe treasure!

Wash & Dry
As with many natural materials, linen doesn’t need to be washed after every wear, so airing is often the best choice. It is possible to wash linen clothes both by hand and in the machine. Even though linen fibres are very durable and can be washed at high temperatures, choose a lower temperature whenever possible to save energy. Spin at a low cycle and use a specific detergent for delicate garments.

Air drying is best for your linen dress as it is most gentle to the fibres and dyes. Linen creases easily – which is part of its charm. However, if you want the fabric to look smooth, iron at a low temperature when it is still wet.

Maintain & Store
Your linen garment will be happiest when stored in a dry and well-ventilated place, away from direct sunlight. Always make sure that it is completely dry before storing to avoid mildew.
