Care Guide

caring for your favoUrite fabrics and fibres

We love our garments and we know that you will too.

Extend the life of your garments by following the simples care instruction on the label.

Wool

SToRAGE

Merino wool is a soft and supple fabric, making it a dream to wear, however it also means it's prone to stretching. To help maintain their shape, always fold your woollen garments and store on a flat surface.

CARE

Although less common in wool than synthetic fibres, pilling can happen. To avoid it, always wash woollen garments inside-out. Should pilling occur, gently remove by hand or using a fabric comb.

CLEaning

To ensure longevity of your Merino, avoid over-washing. Instead, opt to aerate your garment to reduce odour. When you do wash your garment however, always follow the care label.

Linen

Storage

Line is very good at regulating your body temperature but that doesn't make it weather proof!

When you aren't wearing linen garments, they should be stored in a cool, dry place.

Care

Linen is prone to creasing, so if you prefer a crisper look, lightly steam-press your garment when it is slightly damp. You can also reduce creasing by hanging your garments instead of folding them.

Cleaning

Always wash linen in cool water and mild detergent, as well as follow any instructions outlined on the care label. You should also avoid tumble drying linen as it can be prone to shrinkage.

Silk

Storage

Silk is a lightweight, delicate material and is best stored hanging to avoid creasing. Being a protein fibre, silk is also especially attractive to moths. To avoid damage, always store silk in a garment bag with a natural moth repellent.

Care

To reduce the appearance of creases, silk can be lightly steamed under a press cloth.

Never spray liquid, such as perfume or deodorant, directly onto silk as this will cause the fabric to stain.

Cleaning

When washing silk, avoid spot cleaning individual blemishes, instead, always hand-wash the whole garment with a mild, silk-friendly detergent. You can also dry-clean most silk items, however always check the care label for further advice.

Leather & Suede

Storage

Leather is happiest when it can breathe. The best home for your new piece is in a well-ventilated space, out of direct sunlight and inside the dust bag or box provided.

LEATHER CARE

Before debuting your new leather, liberally apply a high-quality water-proofing spray and repeat once a year. Treat your leather periodically with a conditioner to keep it looking fabulous! It is personal preference how often you condition your leather; but a rule of thumb is 6 months for shoes and jackets and 6-12 months for bags.

CLEANING

Use a damp cloth to gently wipe away dirt or blemishes, but ensure you don't use too much water as this can upset the leather. For any specific cleaning, seek the help of a leather specialist.

ADDITIONAL ADVICE

  • Spot test the products you use on your leather to ensure it is the right one for you.
  • To keep your leather shoes in tip-top condition; a cedar shoe tree is perfect for maintaining the shape of your shoes, absorbing moisture and minimising odour.
  • For leather suede, a suede-brush is ideal to keep the fabric looking clean and new.
