The best way to ensure your clothes last a lifetime is with proper care. All of our garments come with a care label with instructions on how to look best after them. This will prevent your clothes from getting damaged in the wash.


Hand wash

Not all textiles can be washed in the washing machine - unfortunately! Many of our styles are hand wash only. Typical candidates for hand washing are wool, leather and silk garments. Many washing machines today offer gentle hand washing or wool washing programs. Whether or not you trust these programs is up to you to decide. In any case, you are on the safe side if you prefer hand washing.



First you run warm water in the sink or in the bathtub. The water temperature should be around 30°C. Now add the detergent and stir to ensure that it is completely dissolved. For correct detergent dosage please follow the manufacturer's instructions.

Next, you put the laundry in the prepared water. Wool and silk should only slightly be moved in the water. The more delicate a garment, the shorter the soaking time.

After the actual washing, the rinsing takes place. Make sure to again proceed as gently as possible, i.e. do not wring out the clothes or press them too hard. If the rinsing water is clear, the laundry can be removed carefully.

Less delicate clothes can be hung to dry. Wool, on the other hand, needs a special treatment: it should be rolled in a towel, then carefully pulled into shape and dried lying down.
