How to wash and care for cotton

  • Cotton can be machine or hand washed. To prevent garments from shrinking and to keep them looking their best, wash at 30°. 
  • Place delicate items in a mesh bag to help prevent snagging or twisting during machine cycles. 
  • Pretreat stains before washing by dabbing a small amount of stain remover*  (a good natural stain remover is to douse the stain with white vinegar, then apply a paste made of equal parts baking soda and vinegar) on the area. For darker pieces, patch test on an inside seam to check the color wont be affected. 
  • Hang cotton out to dry, as heat from tumble dryers can cause it to shrink. This also saves energy.


How to wash and care for linen

  • Like many fabrics, linen clothes need washing less than youd expect. Hang them up to ventilate between wearing. 
  • Machine wash with a low spin at 30°C. High temperatures can weaken the fibers and affect dyes. When hand washing, rinse with lukewarm water. 
  • Hang linen pieces to air dry. Tumble drying can shrink or damage the fibers. It also uses lots of energy. 
  • Take care not to use thin wire hangers or clips that could leave impressions or pull the shoulders out of shape. 
  • Linen creases easily. Hang in the bathroom while taking a hot shower and use the steam to reduce creases.


How to wash and care for silk: We strongly recommend to dry clean in our labels, but there are also ways of taking care of this fabric at home. 

  • Silk shouldn’tt be washed after every wear. Instead, hang silk garments to ventilate, away from direct sunlight which can damage the color.
  • Silk is best hand-washed with a specialist detergent in lukewarm water, without soaking as this can release some dye. Rinse the silk garment without wringing.
  • To machine wash silk, wash at 30°C or lower, on a low spin using a small amount of detergent. A mesh bag helps protect silk garments from snagging or twisting too much in the washer. 
  • To dry, lay the silk garment on a towel and roll up the towel to absorb excess moisture. Then lay flat on a drying rack or hang to air dry. 
  • To iron silk, use the lowest temperature on an iron.
