CARE OF YOUR CLOTHES
Some tips to have your clothes always perfect!
- In the presence of color contrasts, it is advisable to wash the garment separately, respecting the temperature indicated on the label.
- Natural fabrics such as wool, linen or silk shrink if washed at too high temperatures and deform with the spin cycle or if stretched vertically.
- We recommend that you wash artificial and synthetic fabrics with lukewarm water and iron them at a low temperature and inside out. If possible, with liquid detergent and not powder or solid.
- Jeans must always be washed inside out and at temperatures no higher than 40 °C.
- For leather garments, wash only at specialized laundries.
- In the presence of decorations / prints it is advisable to iron the garment inside out.
- Remove the removable parts before washing and / or ironing.
- When drying garments outside, avoid exposure to direct sunlight.
- When ironing, start by applying the lowest temperature. Iron slightly damp garments and inside out for dark colors.
What do the symbols on the labels mean?
Chemical fibers are produced in chemical factories. If raw materials of natural origin are used, they are called artificial fibers. If they are made from petroleum compounds, they are called synthetic fibers.
Viscose or rayon is a soft touch fiber with characteristics similar to cotton and with an appearance similar to wool or silk. It has the characteristic of wrinkling easily and being very absorbent. It tends to shrink due to its low strength.
Soft and light artificial fiber with an appearance similar to that of silk. Some of the features are: it does not shrink, does not bleed and does not wrinkle excessively. It is usually used in underwear, blouses, dresses and other accessories.
Soft and comfortable to wear artificial fiber, with properties similar to cotton with elastane. It is resistant and does not wrinkle.
Highly resistant synthetic fiber that does not wrinkle and does not shrink. It finds various applications, alone or combined with natural and chemical fibers. It is affordable and dries quickly.
Soft and comfortable synthetic fiber. It is highly resistant to moderate and extreme climatic conditions. It is often combined with wool to give it greater resistance.
Highly resistant and elastic synthetic fiber commonly known as Nylon. It deforms at high temperatures and does not absorb perspiration.
Fiber used to give elasticity to the garments. Commonly known as Lycra, it is usually combined with other fibers.
Natural fibers are products obtained with naturally occurring substances. They are divided into vegetable or animal, based on their origin
Vegetable origin fiber obtained from the flax plant. It is a strong, flexible, very resistant and shiny fiber that absorbs moisture and perspiration. It tends to wrinkle easily.
White vegetable fiber with a glossy and silky finish. It is one of the strongest and most resistant natural fibers, but with low elasticity. It sets the color well, lasts a long time and is soft.
Soft, elastic and resistant plant-based fiber with high moisture absorption capacity. It is the most used fiber and has the characteristic of easily wrinkling.
Soft and elastic natural fiber of animal origin. With a heat capacity that allows water to be absorbed or evaporated based on the outside temperature, it adapts to changes in body temperature.
Soft and shiny fiber derived from the silkworm. It is the best quality and best looking fiber; it is soft to the touch and has a characteristic sheen.
