Product Care

VISCOSE

Viscose is a semi synthetic fabric that breathes and behaves like silk but is considerably more durable and easier to care for.

We use a high quality viscose that may temporarily contract when washed. Ironing or steaming will return your garment to its original size and shape.

A gentle machine or hand wash in cold water are the best options. Remove promptly from the machine or water, being careful not to wring or twist the garment. Avoid soaking in harsh detergents containing stain removers.

After washing we recommend using a garment steamer or warm iron to return your garment back it's original size and shape. Avoid dry cleaning as steam pressing will temporarily flatten the texture of the fabric, changing the garments shape. If this occurs, simply wash the garment again and the texture will return. Please do not tumble dry.

TENCEL

Our Tencel fabric is 65% Tencel 35% Cotton blend. 

Tencel fibres are more absorbent than cotton, softer than silk and cooler than linen.

We recommend a cold gentle machine wash inside out using a mild detergent. Cool iron on reverse. Do not dry clean or tumble dry.

LINEN BLEND

A gentle machine or hand wash in cold water are the best options.

Remove promptly from the machine or water, being careful not to wring or twist the garment.

Do not soak in harsh detergents containing bleach or stain removers.

Linen and Viscose Rayon Blend fabric will contract after washing. We recommend using a garment steamer or warm iron to return your garment back its original size and shape. Please do not tumble dry.

LYCRA

Our swim is made from Italian Vita Lycra also known as Econyl.

Vita lycra is a sustainable fabric made from recycled fibres. It has a UPF 50+ sun protection and is resistant to chlorine, sand, sunscreens and oils. The fabric is super soft and resistant to pilling.

We recommend a cold, gentle machine or hand washing in mild detergent.

To prolong the life of your swimwear please rinse after each use. To minimise fading dry in shade, do not wring/soak or dry clean. Avoid contact with rough surfaces.

DENIM AND CHAMBRAY 

Cold machine wash with like colours or hand wash separately. Our dark denim is designed to fade, please take care with light coloured clothing an upholstery as colour may transfer.

LEATHERS AND SUEDES

Please keep away from abrasive surfaces. Superficial scratches can be rubbed off with a soft cloth. Use caution when using waterproof sprays and leather protectors as they may change the colour of the item or strip the leather of it's natural oils. We recommend testing any product in a small area first.

Suedes can be cleaned with a dry cloth or suede brush.

We do not consider slight irregularities, colour variations and/or imperfections in our leathers as a fault, but see them as adding character to the garment.
