Cotton, except denim, can be a fragile material which is more likely to wear and tear when being used.
Therefore, wash as rarely as possible.

Cotton can shrink both when being wash and when tumble-dried.
We therefore recommend that you always wash your cotton at low degrees and hang it up to dry in a shady spot outside.

To avoid your cotton items from going out of shape, we recommend you keep it folded or on a wide hanger of
high quality. The ideal storage depends on the weight and quality of your cotton item.

For example, a sweatshirt can easily be kept on a hanger, while a loose woven tee is better off being folded.


Denim is a very strong and durable material, that rarely breaks.

However, it is very visible when denim is washed too often, as it loses its color and gets a more worn look. If your denim product is not visibly dirty, you can refresh your product by putting it in the freezer in a closed plastic bag for 24 hours.

Denim can give off color and lose saturation - especially during the first few washes.
Therefore, wash with products in similar colors.

To preserve the look and color of your denim product, you should wash it inside out.

Your denim product benefits from being dried outside, but to ensure it is not bleached by the sun, you should always dry it in the shade.


Acrylic, polyester, nylon & PU

Synthetic materials, especially polyester, can quickly obtain a bad smell if they are in contact with sweat and not washed instantly after.
So don’t leave your washing bin lying to long, to save your products from bad smells.

If you wash your synthetic materials at too high temperatures, you risk they’ll be permanently wrinkled. Pay special attention to the care label on synthetic materials.

Acrylic for example cannot take higher temperatures than 40 degrees.

Most synthetic materials dry easily, so take advantage of that and hang them up to dry outside.

Synthetic materials release microplastic when being washed.
Therefore, always use a laundry bag to retain the microplastic.

Synthetic materials do tend to shrink during wash.
Get your product back to the original shape, by ironing while still damp.

Regenerated cellulose

Lyocell, viscose & modal

Viscose can shrink if you wash it wrong.
Always check your care label to see the washing instruction before throwing into the machine.

Always hang your viscose and lyocell products up to dry.
Then you avoid the fabric being wrinkled and store in your wardrobe on a hanger.

Viscose materials do tend to shrink during wash.
Get your product back to the original shape, by ironing while still being damp.


Wool is self-cleansing, and you can therefore limit the washing of your woolen products to when it is visibly dirty. But remember to wear something underneath your woolen favorite to avoid body moisture and smells from getting into the product.

As a normal consumer it is hard to care properly for your wool outerwear when washing.
We recommend always to take your treasured pieces to a dry cleaner, who can cleanse the product thoroughly.

When wool get wet the fibers will weaken and will be in risk of breaking.
Therefore, always dry your woolen product lying down flat with a towel over it.


Down jackets and similar can often do with a wet cloth swipe instead of washing.

Down-filled jackets and similar should always be washed on gentle cycle with detergent appropriate for down-filled products.

It is super important that down is thoroughly dried after washing, to avoid the down from developing a bad smell.

Keep the padded look of your down-filled jacket by tumble drying it with drying balls. Alternatively, you can use tennis balls.


Like wool, silk is a protein and can therefore not be washed with ordinary detergent, as this can ruin the fibers. Therefore, always use detergent appropriate for wool and silk.

Silk is a fragile material, and you should always wash it on a gentle cycle at low degrees.

Do not soak silk, as this might leave stains on your delicate product.
