Here is some additional advice for each type of fabric used:
Polyester and Poly Blends:
Set the wash cycle to normal and use a gentle laundry detergent. Because polyester is a synthetic material, high heat can break down the fibers and cause damage to your clothes. As a result, polyester should be washed using warm or cold water. Make sure to check your care label.
Rayon and Spandex Blends:
Hand wash with mild detergent with cold water. If you must machine-wash a rayon item, turn it inside out and put it in a mesh washing bag. Wash it in cold water on the delicate cycle with a low spin cycle. Rayon can shrink and become misshapen if you use hot water.
Due to its hygroscopicity and morphology, items made from this fibre provide natural comfort and a pleasant feel, making it the ideal choice for garments that come into direct contact with the skin. It can be washed by conventional methods, provided that the colour and finish permit it, according to the symbols and instructions on the label.
This is an artificial cellulose fibre. It offers an exceptional combination: smooth, strong, cool, absorbent, and barely any tendency to pill. It doesn't tend to crease or shrink, and can be easily ironed.
As this is a natural fibre, it has a high degree of moisture absorption, it is flexible and has good insulating properties for protection against the cold. Woollen items do not crease easily, they are soft to the touch, warm, and suitable for autumn and winter garments. If pilling develops, the bobbles can be easily removed. Bear in mind that it shrinks by felting and should be washed by hand, at low temperatures, or dry cleaned, always following the washing instructions on our label.
This is a very hard-wearing, versatile synthetic fibre, with low moisture absorption, that can accumulate static electricity. Easy care, it does not shrink or crease when washed, and it dries rapidly, although it can develop pilling. If this happens, pills can be removed by cutting the fibres.
This natural fibre provides a comfortable fresh feeling. It is strong, with little elasticity, and very absorbent, which is why it is common to see it in our summer garments. We usually recommend washing it by hand, as it has a strong tendency to shrink and crease.
Natural fibre with a very characteristic feel and sheen. Good moisture absorption. Cannot be washed at high temperatures, or spun, therefore it is not advisable to dry it in a tumble drier. We usually recommend dry cleaning, and when ironing, always place a cloth over it.
Down and padded jackets:
Garments with both natural fibres and synthetic fibres can be washed by machine. We recommend turning the item inside out and closing zips and hook and look straps. Drying is very important, to avoid the feathers clumping. You can use a tumble dryer.
Leather and suede:
If the cleaning is superficial, we recommend using a damp cloth. If you need to do a deep clean, we recommend using a specialist in these materials.
Avoid colours fading:
Due to the dying processes used, some of our garments can fade more than others. To advise you in advance of this, we mark the labels of these garments with a WARNING.
Garments with decorative detailing:
We recommend removing any detachable detailing from the garment before washing it, whenever possible.
The rest of general materials:
Hand wash separately, Do not tumble dry. Material may shrink, stretch, or pill with wear. Follow the wash guide to prevent damage and/or distortion. Warning: Dark colours may transfer, 1st wash is recommended to do a dry clearn.
