• Follow the manufacturer's instructions for specific washing guidelines.
  • Use a gentle, non-bleach detergent and wash linen in cold or lukewarm water.
  • To prevent color bleeding, separate light and dark linen items.
  • Avoid overloading the washing machine to allow for proper movement of the fabric.





  • You can machine-wash your cotton garments at a normal wash cycle setting and at a low temperature (max. 30°C), or cold.
  • Choosing lower temperatures reduces the risk of shrinkage and color fading while minimizing the associated cost and environmental impact of energy usage.
  • Use a gentle eco-friendly laundry detergent and avoid conventional softeners as well as bleach, as they can damage the fabric.
  • To further protect your garments, always wash them with similar colors and inside out.




  • Wool has temperature-regulating and self-cleaning properties, is breathable and doesn’t absorb odors, so you won’t need to wash your knitwear very often. Most of the time, it will actually be enough to simply air out your woollen clothes by gently shaking them or laying them flat on a chair overnight.
  • If you find your knitwear does require some cleaning, wash it by hand using cold water and eco-friendly wool laundry detergent.
  • It’s important to avoid harsh detergents and bleach, as those can damage the delicate material. Try not to rub and scrub your knitwear, as it can cause surface wear; instead, let the garment soak for up to 10 minutes before thoroughly rinsing it with clean water.



  • Here’s the good news: viscose is meant to go in your washing machine 🎊
  • A warm-water hand-wash can shrink it, but your machine knows the right temperature (30°C, on the button). Turn your garment inside out, choose a gentle cycle, then sit back and relax.


  • Once you have pretreated and sorted out your polyester items, place the load into your washing machine. Set the wash cycle to normal and use a gentle laundry detergent.
  • Because polyester is a synthetic material, high heat can break down the fibers and cause damage to your clothes. As a result, polyester should be washed using warm or cold water.
  • Make sure to check your care label. If you are washing white or bright colors, you may also want to consider adding in all-purpose bleach alternative to provide an extra boost.
