Washing instructions

WASHING INSTRUCTIONS: To be able to enjoy your clothing until the end of time (with normal wear of course), it is super important to care properly for our slowfashion garments. 
The most important question is; washing.

Our garments are sewn up from ECO- friendly natural fibers/fabric and are hand dyed. 
This makes our garments quite sensitive to agressive chemicals and warmth. 
It is highly recommended to hand-wash your clothing in luke-warm water, with special care to the gradient dyed garments.

First dissolve soap in luke-warm water, only add your clothing afterwards! 
if it’s a gradient dyed garment, wash the darker parts first, use cold water to fix the color bleeding. Only afterwards, wash the lighter parts. 
It is the best to use natural detergents and softener.

• Cold water fixes color bleeding • Do not soak, the color may change

Do not wring, you may distort the fibres. Press the water out from inch to inch. 
You may use your washing machinees spin-dryer on a low level (600) if your machine has never caused  any damages to delicate clothing. 
Avoid direct sunlight when drying, and lay it to dry inside out.

We do not recommend to dry your hand-dyed garments in a dryer. The warmth can change the colors.

We use hand-made labels; our sewn-in caring information labels are hand-stamped on cotton ribbons one-by-one.

All of our garments are hand-dyed, this is done separately on each piece. We either use plants or low impact dyes to create the desired color and lookt that makes every piece look unique.

We use a very small ammount of water when we dye our garments.

• We are not (!) responsible for items damaged due to mistreatment in care or wear.

• We do not offer mending or dyeing services. Avoid placinf sharp objects (knives,scissors, etc) in soft fleece pockets as they may pierce the fabric.

• Treat your clothes with love, and they will last for years.

• Please understand this is not commercially manufactured clothing. All color will mellow with time. Color variations and mottling in the dye job is not considered a defect, but instead part of what makes this clothing unique.

• In order to give your clothing the longest life, you may opt to handwasg your clothes with a natural PH neutral detergent.

• Machine washing/drying is ok for pieces that are not explicity labeled «hand wash only» when you receive them, but keep in mind; machines are rougher on clothing.

• For best apperance, we highly recommend ironing your pieces after washing on details such as hoods, yolks and especially brims. To iron a brim; set iron to medium/high heat and press for several seconds. Allow to dry on a cool, flat surfacd for a few minutes to set before wearing.
