VISCOSE

Our garments are handmade from viscose.  Viscose is a semi natural fabric, that breathes and behaves like silk but is considerably more durable and easy to care for.

We use a high quality viscose with a crepe-like texture. This texture may temporarily contract when washed. Don’t worry though, ironing or steaming will return your garment to it’s original size and shape. 

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

If you have any concerns or queries please contact online@misterzimi.com or call (03) 9576 2645.

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. 

SILK

Handmade from 100% Silk. Please take care when wearing and caring for your silk garment due to the delicate nature of the fabric.

We recommend a cold hand wash using a gentle detergent. Soaking or stain removers should be avoided. Do not wring, twist or roll in towel to extract water, hang to drip dry. 

Cool iron on silk setting or use garment steamer to remove creases.

SWIM

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 resistant to chlorine, sand, sunscreens and oils. The fabric is super soft with less pilling as it is 20% flatter than other lycra's.  

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.

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.

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.
