Fabric Care Guide

Our styles are made to last and to help you make sure that they do, we’ve created this useful fabric care guide to give you tips on how to look after the different fabrics we feature in our collections.

HOW TO CARE FOR LINEN

A key part of our collections, linen is the natural,
eco-friendly fabric that is a true investment buy

A key part of our collections, linen is the natural, eco-friendly fabric that is a true investment buy.

A naturally lower impact fibre, linen is made from flax plant fibres that are grown with almost entirely rainwater and boasts a waste-free process. It brilliantly keeps you cool in summer and warm in winter as well as being comfortable, lightweight and breathable.

Due to its ability to manage moisture, it pulls humidity and sweat to the outer surface of the fabric, where it can evaporate away, keeping you feeling fresh.

Linen is very resilient, made to last for years and only gets better with each wear and wash - becoming softer and more malleable to your body. When it does reach the end of its life-cycle, it naturally bio-degrades, so has a very low environmental impact.

Tips for Washing & Drying Linen

  • Follow advice on the care labels, dry cleaning or hand washing your linen when necessary;
  • Linen is highly dye absorbent, so protect it by washing it with similar colours;
  • Linen dries fast so hang up your item immediately after washing to reduce creases;
  • If you need to iron your linen, do it while the item is still damp for the best results.

All About Denim

All our denim is made from responsibly sourced cotton. Cotton is a strong fibre that softens with time. When cared for correctly, this means your denim pieces will be both long lasting and become more comfortable through the years.

With denim, less is more

Tips for Washing & Drying Denim

  • Wash your denim pieces as little as possible; cotton is a strong fibre so it doesn’t need to be washed after every wear.
  • Spot wash with a damp cloth or toothbrush in between washes to prolong your denim.
  • When you do wash your denim, turn it inside out, and put it on a cold wash. You can trust that our denim won’t run or fade.
  • Then air dry your pieces and make sure to re-shape whilst it’s damp to help preserve its colour, shape and fit.
  • Fall in love with your well-worn pair of jeans, this is when they’re at their most comfortable!
