CLOTHESWe choose the best natural materials for our products. However, their specific utility and technological properties require special care.
Products which are made from 100% cotton, or which are high in cotton content, may be unstable after dyeing. This effect can be caused by frequent washing in unsuitable detergents or by intense sunlight or aggressive sweat.
RECOMMENDED WASHING MAINTENANCE
Machine washingWe recommend using quality detergents marked COLOUR (for coloured laundry). Detergents with a bleaching effect or with a chlorine additive are not suitable for the maintenance of our products.
Before washing, first check that all pockets are empty. Unbuckle detachable clothing or other detachable parts such as buckles and other fixings. If the clothes are not heavily soiled, do not wash them to the maximum time or temperature marked.
Water temperature is a very common mistake. Our products should always be washed in lukewarm water (room temperature is ideal). Some products may leak colour during the first few wash cycles. These products should be washed separately before stabilizing. The detergent must be completely dissolved before washing. Only gently squeeze the product, never rub. After washing, rinse the product thoroughly and do not wring, but only squeeze.
DryingIf you are drying clothes outdoors, try not to expose coloured products in particular to direct sunlight. Do not fold clothes made of heavier materials. When drying indoors, make sure that the room is well ventilated. Dry knitted clothes spread out.
Treatment of linen garments
- Wash linen at low temperature.
- Since linen is a relatively delicate material, we recommend washing it by hand or on a gentle programme in the washing machine.
Treatment of woollen garments
- Products made of wool or its mixtures should only be washed in preparations specifically for wool (such as Perwoll, Norit).
- At a maximum temperature of 30 ° C, rinse only in lukewarm water and always reduce the temperature by max. 4 ° C when rinsing.
- Do not wring, just squeeze and dry on a flat surface.
- Never hang or put in the dryer.
Treatment of corduroy clothes
- After washing, hang with the pile facing down and brush it in the direction of the pile.
- If the product needs ironing, iron it from the reverse side and just steam it lightly to avoid creasing the pile and creating shiny spots.
Treatment of clothes with a waterproof membrane
- Before washing your clothes, fully close the front zipper and pockets.
- Wash in a washing machine in warm water (30 ° C), using only a small amount of detergent.
- Rinse twice and limit squeezing to prevent creasing of clothing.
- Do not use products that contain emollients, fabric softeners, stain removers or bleaches, as these substances impair the functional properties of the garment.
Treatment of clothes with pigment washingProducts labeled 'pigment dye' have the characteristic 'washed' look achieved by the dyeing of individual garments.
This is a manual process that gives each piece of clothing a unique shade. Shade diversity is a desirable effect that emphasizes the uniqueness of the garment and is not a reason for complaint! Some colours may fade after each wash, so it is important to follow the care symbols on the label and wash these garments separately to avoid damaging others.
TIPS AND ADVICE
- High temperature treatment is harmful to any material.
- Clothes, especially with rich, dark colours, wash and iron on the reverse side.
- We recommend washing Lyocel and other delicate materials in a delicates laundry bag.
- In case of uncertainty about the method of treatment, or if you do not know how to remove the dirt, do not experiment and entrust the clothing to professional care.
- Drying clothes in direct sunlight poses a risk of discolouration.
- For detachable trousers, we recommend washing the trousers, including the detachments, together in order to maintain the same colour, as well as washing jackets with detachable hoods or sleeves.
- Do not use stain removers, as discolouration may occur.
- Do not use all-purpose detergents that contain bleaching and brightening ingredients.
- Maintain textile accessories in the same way as clothes.
WAXED BAGS AND HATS AND OILED COATS
WAXED AND OILED SURFACESThis is made by impregnating 100% cotton fabric with a mixture of oils and waxes, which are pressed into the fabric under high pressure. This process ensures that the impregnation is stable even in stressed areas, so the fabric retains its exceptional properties for a long time. The protective layer acts in such a way that the water is not absorbed by the substance, but flows freely over it, while the garment remains breathable.
Composition: upper material: 100% cotton impregnated with oil, lining: 100% cotton
RECOMMENDED MAINTENANCE OF WAXED AND OILED PRODUCTS
- Do not expose to open flames or sources of high heat radiation.
- Protect against acids, alkaloids and other chemicals.
- If the product comes into contact with chemicals, clean immediately with lukewarm water and restore the protective layer using wax.
- Do not leave the product in direct sunlight (eg behind the rear window of a car).
- Use a soft brush or sponge in water to remove dry dirt.
- Dry hung in a cool ventilated room.
- Do not store wet in a closed room.
- Do not use soap, bleach or other cleaning agents.
- Do not wash in the washing machine.
- Do not wring or dry in a tumble dryer.
- Do not dry clean.
- Do not iron.
The same maintenance recommendations apply as for waxed and oiled products. However, for a longer service life of leather products, we recommend treating the leather surface approximately once every 3 months with a suitable impregnating agent according to the type of leather used.
LEATHER HATS AND ACCESSORIES
Shoes must be cleaned with a suitable brush, a soft cloth or a damp sponge. Dry smooth leather should be treated with a cream. Avoid soaking, which damages the appearance of the surface finish and deforms the shapes. If the footwear gets soaked, take care to clean it, dry it and impregnate it with a product designed for the respective type of leather and its surface treatment.
TEXTILE MATERIALSTextile materials can be cleaned with a soft brush, depending on the type of textile and the nature of the soiling, and by wet wiping. Clean greasy stains with a suitable agent designed for this type of contamination.
These are easy to clean with water with detergent. After rinsing with water, the detergent is easily wiped off with a cloth.
