DENIM

Denim has been popular for decades, and we believe that few wardrobes do not have at least one denim object.

Denim is one of the materials that remains popular regardless of new trends. 

Frequent washing will cause the color to fade and take on a more worn appearance. 
As with many other qualities and products, we do not recommend washing if the products are not visibly dirty or have a bad odor. 

When you wash your denim product or any other product, turn it inside out and close all buttons and zippers. You should always wash your denim product with similar colors to ensure that the color does not bleed onto other garments.

Instead of tumbling your denim product, hang it outside in the fresh air, but always place it in the shade so its delicate color does not fade in the sun.

VISCOSE

Viscose fabric is a soft and lightweight material with a drape and smooth feel similar to silk but at a more affordable price. 

When handled with special care, your viscose garment will stay bright and colorful.

Do not wash your garment too often unless it is visibly dirty. If washed at the wrong temperature or program, your viscose garment may get out of shape and shrink.

Since viscose is prone to wrinkling and creasing, do not wash it at high temperature, do not fill the machine too heavily, and make sure to only use a gentle cycle. Always put your garment on a good quality hanger instead of leaving the garment folded. If creases appear after use, you may steam your garments. Steaming is a gentler way of removing creases. If ironing, please always iron on the backside of the garment.

SILK

Silk is a delicate material that we admire for its beauty and fluent drape, and silk has been part of our collections for many years. Silk is often used in items designed for special occasions.

Silk garments should be delicately washed by hand. Be careful not to distort your garment's proportions when wet. Like wool, silk is a natural protein and must not be washed with regular laundry detergent. Instead, it should be washed with an enzyme-free detergent for silk and other animal fibers. 

You should never soak your silk garment as stains can appear. Nor should you spray your silk garment with perfume and ensure the deodorant is dry before putting it on; otherwise, it can leave stains.

LEATHER

Leather is a natural material famous for its durability, and it can last a lifetime if you take good care of it.

Do not wash your leather garment or expose it to rain, as this can cause it to crease and cause the color to smudge. If your garment becomes dirty, you can use a damp cloth to gently remove it. Never rub the garment heavily.

If needed, your leather garment can be dry cleaned, but be careful about choosing a specialized cleaner facility for the treatment of leather.

Avoid folding your leather product as it may damage its appearance. Store it hanging on a wide, high-quality hanger in a well-ventilated place. It is important that the leather product is hung correctly on the hanger, as its shape can become distorted if stored wrong.

Keep your leather product away from high temperatures to avoid it from drying out.

POLYESTER

Polyester is an amazing clothing material with many advantages when used in textiles. 
It is strong, durable, and resistant to wrinkles, shrinking, and stretching.  
When treated with care, this material keeps its shape and appearance so you can treasure your garment for many years. 
If your garment does not have visible spots or bad odor after wear, we suggest you air your garments outside to refresh them.
When necessary, we recommend washing your garment at a low temperature, a maximum of 30 degrees, at a low cycle and hanging it to dry. Do not fill your machine too heavily.  
Do not use a tumble dryer, as this helps prolong your garment's life. 
It is also important to avoid fabric softeners and bleach, which can damage the fibers and the environment. 

WOOL

Wool is loved and treasured by generations. Wool is a natural self-cleaning material, meaning you only need to wash your garment when it is visibly dirty. We recommend wearing a t-shirt or top underneath your wool garments to absorb body odor.

When you need to refresh your garment, you can hang it outside in the shade on a wide, high-quality hanger, but never hang it when it is wet because it can become misshapen. Instead, dry your wool garment on a flat surface with an absorbent material, e.g., a towel, underneath. 

We recommend storing your wool product folded or rolled in a well-ventilated closet. If you hang it, it can become misshapen.

Please only use detergents suitable for wool.

Avoid using hot water, bleach, or fabric softeners, as they can damage the wool fibers. After washing, gently squeeze out excess water and lay the garment flat to dry. Do not wring or twisting the garment, as it can cause it to lose shape. To remove wrinkles, you may carefully steam the garment.

Some types of wool should only be hand-washed, while others are perfectly fine to wash in your washing machine. Always follow the wash and care label attached to each garment.

Cedar blocks or lavender sachets can be used in your closet to repel moths.

COTTON

Cotton is one of the most used materials in the Fashion Industry and is loved and treasured by many for its versatility and advantages.

Depending on the specific garment and design, it is soft, breathable, durable, and highly comfortable. All our garments are produced in high-quality cotton to ensure they become long-lasting pieces in your wardrobe. 

Cotton is also a hypoallergenic material, making it less likely to cause skin irritation or allergic reactions. 

Here are some tips for caring for your cotton garments: 

Wash at low temperature, at low cycle: Hot water can cause cotton to shrink and fade. Washing at low temperatures helps preserve the color and shape of your cotton clothes. 
Use a gentle detergent: Harsh detergents can damage cotton fibers. Use a mild detergent to keep your cotton clothes looking their best. 
Avoid bleach: Bleach can weaken cotton fibers and cause yellowing.
Dry on low heat: High heat can cause cotton to shrink and wrinkle. Dry your cotton clothes on low heat or hang them to dry. 
Iron on low heat: High heat can scorch cotton fabric. Iron your cotton clothes on low heat and always inside out.
