Our Materials

Materials are essential for us. They are a part of the DNA of our brand, so we take great care when picking the best fabrics for you.

Let us introduce you to the materials we use the most, their properties and how to care for them.

As each piece of clothing is different, please always remember to follow the care instructions attached to your garment.

Wool & other animal hair

Wool is in many ways a great material. It has perfect thermoregulation, does not take on odours and is water repellent and elastic. However, it can easily shrink and sometimes can be irritating to the skin.

Common in high-quality knitwear, suits, office wear and performance wear.

CARE

  • due to its properties, it is not necessary to to wash wool very often

  • dry clean or hand wash in lukewarm water (soak in water with mild soap, shampoo or a special detergent), do not wring or twist

  • dry lying flat, do not tumble dry, do not dry in direct sunlight

  • iron inside out or steam at a low temperature, preferably let your garment hang and the wrinkles will straighten

  • do not bleach
