Paying some extra attention to how you wash and take care of your clothes will not only prolong their life, but also help minimize their environmental impact. The washing instructions on the label provide useful advice and are a good place to start. If you have any questions about things like stubborn stains, delicate fabrics or eco-friendly washing, our customer service team is happy to help.
Cotton it’s fabric low maintenance. Cotton is fully machine-washable and if worn and treated with care, will last for a long time. Check the washing instructions on each garment.
Cashmere can be prone to pilling, caused by rubbing. We suggest wash it by hand or on a delicate cycle in the washing machine. The best way to dry cashmere is on a flat towel, as hanging or twisting wet cashmere is likely to stretch the fibres. Pilling can be removed with a single-blade razor, taking extra care to glide across the fabric and not press down too hard.
When washing linen, set your machine to a low temperature and a delicate cycle. Linen is a natural material and can become misshapen when wet. You can restore it by ironing with a hot steam iron. To keep its sheen, iron the garment on the reverse side.
Silk is a delicate material. Check the label first because sometimes dry cleaning is the only option. If It’s washable, use cool water and a detergent for delicates and avoid stretching the garment while it’s wet. Avoid the dryer: this will damage and shrink the fabric.
Use a detergent for delicates when you do wash them. Use the wool or hand wash or wash by hand. To avoid stretching the wool fibres, don’t wring wool clothes and always dry them flat. Ironing after washing helps to restore the material’s natural sheen.
Leather & Suede
First of all remember to keep leather and suede away from humidity, heat and chemicals. To get rid of light stains, wipe the garment with a slightly damp cloth. Otherwise we recommend that leather items are taken to a specialist leather dry cleaner. Dry them at normal room temperature.
Our sunglasses grant 100% UV protection (both UVA and UVB), what applies also to decoloured lenses. All metallic parts of the glasses have been tested with nickel.
The tint of the glasses determines the capacity of the lenses to transmit visual light and could be ranged according to different filter categories. To be considered: sunglasses are not recommended to directly visualize sun.
Filter of the lenses
Our pieces’ frames are in general made of acetate, which is considered the best quality material for glasses nowadays. Derived from renewable resources, acetate is a hypoallergenic material made of nylon, which makes the lenses more durable and flexible and at the time is hyper light. Each pair of glasses is hand-made, paying strict attention to details and the outcome is a quality piece.
To take care of your glasses, cleaning is recommended with a soft and dry fabric and they should be kept in a small bag or case when not used, to avoid impacts.
