The most widely produced natural fibre in the world, Cotton is known for its performance, versatility and natural comfort.
Sourced from the seedpod of the cotton plant, cotton is soft, breathable, lightweight, absorbent, hypoallergenic and durable. Its fibre structure is unique in that it helps you stay cool in summer and warm in winter.
Wash in warm or cool water (30°C or below) to prevent shrinking and fading. When using a washing machine, opt for a short and gentle cycle. Avoid fabric softeners, as this can dull the finish.
Cotton fabrics can be air-dried, or machine dried using moderate-to-low heat. High heats can cause cotton fibres to shrink.
Iron on high heat while fabric is slightly damp. Use steam as needed. Note that ironing can usually be avoided by air drying or removing immediately from the machine.
Breathable, hypoallergenic and cool to touch, linen is one of the strongest fibres and lasts longer than other materials. Being a natural fibre, linen is biodegradable and great for regions with high temperatures.
Our linen clothing is made in Italy using the finest quality yarns.
When washing linen, you can either wash by hand or machine wash separately. Use lukewarm or cold water and a mild detergent without bleach or brighteners. When using a washing machine, opt for a short and gentle cycle. Avoid dry cleaning.
To finish drying, always try to airdry linen clothes flat. Avoid exposure to direct sunlight over long periods of time, over-drying linen can also make it brittle over time.
Linen fabric doesn’t require ironing; however, you can choose to iron linen while the fabric is still a little damp.
The natural rayon fibres are regenerated from wood pulp, dissolved in a solvent, then spun into textile fibres. The fabrics made from rayon are diverse.
Viscose, a semi-synthetic type of rayon fabric made from wood pulp is used as a silk substitute, as it has a similar drape and a soft smooth feel to the luxury material.
Viscose is absorbent and breathable, making it a great summer fabric. In addition, it is smooth, comfortable and hard wearing.
Viscose is a highly absorbent fabric, relatively inelastic and therefore very delicate especially when wet. It is recommended to hand wash using cold water (maximum 20° C). Use a mild detergent only and avoid bleach. If you choose to use a washing machine, select the delicate cycle or « Hand wash » program and put the clothes in a wash bag. As a natural characteristic, viscose is known to slightly shrink after wash.
To finish drying, always try to airdry flat, on a hanger.
We recommend ironing when garment is slightly damp using warm to hot iron on the reverse side.
Denim is a strong cotton fabric made with twill weave to create a diagonal ribbed pattern. It is the most commonly worn fabric and comes in a range of colours.
Limit the amount of unnecessary washes to maintain fit and prolong its colour. Spot cleaning is a great way to prevent washing often. When washing using machine, turn garment inside out and wash in cold water with minimal amount of detergent.
Line-drying preserves the fit and helps avoid possible shrinkage or fabric warping. Turning your jeans inside out (and hanging them in a shady space) prevents fading and avoids soggy pockets.
Avoid ironing denim whenever possible. However, if you must, keep the garment damp throughout the process and use the iron on a low heat setting. Turning the garment inside out while ironing can prevent fading. Steaming is a better alternative than ironing.
Synthetic fibres are made from chemicals consisting of superior properties to natural fibres such as cotton or silk.
Polyester is the most widely used fibre in the world and is known for its smooth hand feel and soft drape. It is also durable, readily available, cost-efficient and resistant to wrinkles, shrinkage and moths.
Polyester is very easy to care for, it can be washed by machine in warm water. Polyester does not need to be dry cleaned, lessening the need for chemicals used in this process.
Air dry polyester or tumble dry at low to medium temperature.
If ironing is required, use a low heat setting or steam when drying polyester garments.
