Some advice to take good care of your products

  • If there are colour contrasts, it is suggested to wash the item separately, respecting the temperature indicated on the label.
  • Natural fabrics such as wool, linen or silk shrink if they are washed at higher temperatures and they distort in the centrifuge or if they are hang out vertically.
  • We suggest you wash the artificial and synthetic fabrics with lukewarm water and to iron them at low temperature and on the reverse side. If possible wash them with a liquid detergent, not with a solid or powdery one.
  • Jeans must be washed on the reverse side at a temperature not higher than 40°C.
  • Leather items must be treated only by specialized laundries.
  • In case of decorations or prints it is suggested to iron the item on the reverse side.
  • Take off the removable parts before washing/ironing
  • When you let your items dry outside, avoid the direct exposition to the sunbeams
  • When you iron, start applying the lower temperature. Iron the items when they are lightly damp and on the reverse side in case of darker colours.

Man-made fibres

Man-made fibres are entirely produced in chemical plants or laboratories. If they derive from polymers that occur naturally, they are named artificial fibres. On the other hand, if they derive from polymers entirely produced in chemical plants, such as by-products of petroleum or natural gas, they are named synthetic fibres.

Viscose Viscose
The viscose or raion is a soft fibre similar to cotton and with a similar aspect to wool or silk. It can easily wrinkle, and it is highly absorbent. It can shrink when washed because of its low resistance.

Acetate Acetate
It is a light and soft artificial fibre with a similar aspect to silk. Some of its characteristics are: it doesn’t shrink, it does not lose colour and it does not wrinkle too much. It is usually used for underwear, blouses, dresses and other accessories.

Modal Fibre Modal Fibre
It is a soft and comfortable artificial fibre, with properties similar to cotton with elastane. It is resistant and it does not wrinkle.

Polyester Polyester
Synthetic fibre that is highly resistant and does not wrinkle nor shrinks. It has several applications, used alone or together with natural or chemical fibres. It has low costs and it dries quickly.

Acrylic Acrylic
Soft and comfortable synthetic fibre. It is highly resistant to extreme and moderate climatic conditions. It is often merged to wool to obtain higher resistance.

Polyamide Polyamide
Highly resistant and elastic synthetic fibre commonly known as Nylon. It deforms at high temperatures and it does not absorbs transpiration.

Elastane Elastane
This fibre is used to give elasticity to clothes. It is commonly known as Lycra, it is usually merged with other fibres.


Natural Fibres

Natural fibres are obtained using substances that occur naturally. They are divided in vegetal or natural fibres, according to their origin.

Linen Linen
It is a fibre of vegetal origin obtained from the linen plant. It is strong, flexible, very resistant and shiny, it absorbs humidity and transpiration. It easily wrinkles.

Ramie Fibre Ramie Fibre
It is a white fibre of vegetal origin with a shiny and silky finish. It’s one of the strongest and most resistant natural fibre but is has a lack of elasticity. It secure colours very well, it lasts for a long time and it is soft.

Cotton Cotton
It is a fibre of vegetal origin, it is soft, elastic and resistant with high-capacity of humidity absorption. It is the most employed fibre and it easily wrinkles.

Wool Wool
It is a soft and elastic natural fibre of animal origin. With its thermal capacity that allows to absorb or evaporate water based on the external temperature, it adapts to changes in body temperature.

Silk Silk
Soft and shiny fibre derived from the silk worm. It’s the fibre with the highest quality and best aspect, it is silky and soft and it has a characteristic shiny.
