PURCHASE CARE & REPAIR
Conscious and sustainable handling of clothing is very important to us. Thereby we do not only consider how we manufacture our clothing, but how it is treated and cared for once it found a new owner. Consuming sustainable fashion means, first and foremost, buying as little as possible, but then also properly maintaining what you already have. Therefore, we have put together some tips and tricks to help you care for, repair, and potentially modify your clothing, so that you can enjoy it for as long as possible.

1. CARE SYMBOLS & BASICS
The washing process roughens the fibers of your clothes. You can easily bring them back into shape with a simple iron. Important: Always stick to the temperature information that we have noted on your garment. With special natural fibers such as silk, but also with fibers such as TENCEL™ and Lenzing™ EcoVero™, it is advisable to place a damp cloth over the garment and use a steam iron.
Have you discovered a few small pilling nodules on your favorite woolen item? Unfortunately, this cannot be prevented with natural fibers such as wool, but fortunately it is not a big problem for long! You can easily remove the pilling with a lint razor – important: do not try to pluck it off by hand, this could damage the fiber.
2. MATERIAL CARE
Bamboo fabrics will maintain their special qualities when washed in cold to warm water (up to 40 degrees Celsius) with a gentle detergent, free of bleach. You may want to use a gentle cycle for some finished garments and fabric types. If necessary, bamboo fabrics can be dried in a clothes dryer on the cool setting.
Prone to wrinkling after washing: Milk fabric tends to wrinkle after washing. This requires special care when laundering and ironing the fabric to avoid unwanted wrinkles. Moderate durability: Compared to some other types of fabrics, milk fabric has moderate durability.
For woolen knits, first of all, refer to the instructions for silk/wool on the left. Additionally after washing gently press the product between two towels and lay it out afterward for drying. Knitwear should also be stored lying so that your product keeps its form. For small pilling nodules in the material (occurs naturally after some time), use a lint razor.
