Understanding Fabric Care

Different fabrics require specific care techniques to maintain their quality and appearance. Let’s delve into the care instructions for various materials and highlight some key garments from our collection.

Caring for 100% Cotton

Cotton is a durable and breathable fabric, but it can shrink and lose its shape if not cared for properly. The Clara Embroidered Mini Dress, made from 100% cotton, is a perfect example of a garment that benefits from careful maintenance.

Washing Instructions

  • Machine Wash: Use cold or lukewarm water to prevent shrinkage. Select a gentle cycle to protect the fabric's integrity.
  • Detergent: Use a mild detergent to avoid harsh chemicals that can wear down the fabric.
  • Avoid Overloading: Do not overload the washing machine to ensure a thorough and gentle clean.

Drying Instructions

  • Air Dry: Lay the dress flat on a clean, dry towel and reshape it. Avoid hanging it as this can cause stretching.
  • Tumble Dry: If using a dryer, opt for a low heat setting to minimize shrinkage.


Caring for 100% Viscose

Viscose, known for its silky feel and drape, requires delicate handling. The Grace Printed Mini Dress, crafted from 100% viscose, exemplifies the need for special care.

Washing Instructions

  • Hand Wash: Wash in cold water with a gentle detergent. Avoid wringing or twisting the fabric to prevent damage.
  • Machine Wash: If necessary, use a delicate cycle with cold water and place the dress in a mesh laundry bag to protect it.

Drying Instructions

  • Air Dry: Lay flat on a towel to dry. Avoid direct sunlight, which can fade colours.
  • Ironing: Iron on a low setting with a cloth barrier to protect the fabric.

Caring for Linen Blend

Linen blends, like our Paulina Linen Blend Trouser crafted from 52% linen and 48% viscose, combine durability with comfort but require careful treatment to maintain their texture and structure.

Washing Instructions

  • Machine Wash: Use cold water and a gentle cycle. Avoid using bleach or harsh detergents that can weaken the fibres.
  • Hand Wash: Alternatively, hand wash in cool water with mild detergent.

Drying Instructions

  • Air Dry: Lay flat to dry or hang on a padded hanger to maintain shape. Avoid wringing the fabric.
  • Ironing: Iron while the trousers are still slightly damp to achieve the best results. Use a medium heat setting.

Caring for Cotton-Lycra Blend

The Biba Jersey Top, made from 97% cotton and 3% lycra, combines comfort with a bit of stretch. This blend is relatively low-maintenance but still requires some attention to maintain its fit and fabric quality.

Washing Instructions

  • Machine Wash: Use cold water and a gentle cycle to preserve elasticity.
  • Detergent: Use a mild detergent, avoiding fabric softeners which can break down the lycra fibres.

Drying Instructions

  • Air Dry: Lay flat or hang to dry. Avoid high heat as it can damage the lycra.
  • Tumble Dry: If necessary, use a low heat setting and remove promptly to prevent wrinkling.

General Garment Care Tips

Following a few general tips can help ensure all your garments, regardless of fabric, stay in good condition:

Stain Removal

  • Immediate Action: Treat stains as soon as possible. Blot (don’t rub) with a clean cloth and use appropriate stain removers for specific types of stains.
  • Test First: Always test stain removers on an inconspicuous area to ensure they don’t cause discoloration or damage.


  • Proper Storage: Store garments in a cool, dry place. Use padded hangers for delicate items and fold heavy knits to prevent stretching.
  • Avoid Plastic: Store clothes in breathable garment bags rather than plastic, which can trap moisture and cause mildew.

Regular Maintenance

  • Mending: Repair small tears or loose buttons promptly to prevent further damage.
  • Pilling: Use a fabric shaver to remove pilling from knits and other soft fabrics.

By following this comprehensive care guide for garments, you can keep your clothes looking fresh and stylish for years to come. Our Clara Embroidered Mini Dress, Grace Printed Mini Dress, Paulina Linen Blend Trouser, and Biba Jersey Top are all designed to last, provided they are cared for with attention and respect for their unique fabric needs.
