Fabric Care Guide
Sustainability does not end at the purchase
What happens after you purchase your items might be the most important factor when it comes to sustainable fashion. We can make the most sustainable and eco friendly garments, but if it is not well cared for or discarded quickly, resources are wasted. That is why we want to support you in caring for your garments in the best way possible:
Sensitive Laundry: Use a special detergent without protein-based enzymes (e.g. wool detergent). These enzymes can damage wool and silk.
If you get a stain on your items: Rinse immediately to avoid the stain to soak in too much. Do not use bleach but rather mild detergent. Don’t rub the fabrics. Rinse it off, soak it for a short amount of time and then wash it according to the washing instructions (see below).
Take care: Wash your garments inside out, only with similar colors and according to the care labels.
Less is more: Only a few items of clothing need to be washed after each wear. Too much washing harms the environment and is not the best choice for your clothes. Less is more is also the case for garment care.
Handle carefully: The items you receive are delicate. Don't try to pull and stretch the fabric unnecessarily. For the long sleeve tier dress for example, open all the buttons before putting on the dress instead of trying to “squeeze” in to avoid ripping off threads.
Storage: Store your garments carefully. Don’t overfill your closet, hang clothes such as blouses, shirts or trousers on hangers. Fold knitwear or stretchy items. Protect your clothes from moths and store rarely used items on a dry and cool place.
