HOW TO WASH AND CARE YOUR HAND-PAINTED PIECE
Paying some extra attention to how you wash and take care of your clothes will not only prolong their life, but also help minimize their environmental impact and save natural resources.
Your hand-painted clothes shouldn’t be washed after every wear. Instead, hang garments to ventilate, away from direct sunlight which can damage the colour.
Wash at 30°C or lower, on a low spin using a small amount of detergent. A mesh bag can help protect garments from snagging or twisting too much in the washer. This will prevent de disappearing of the paint.
Place delicate items in a mesh bag to help prevent snagging or twisting during machine cycles.
Hang pieces to air dry. Tumble drying can shrink or damage the fibres. It also uses lots of energy.
Avoid stretching the garment while it’s wet.
Take care not to use thin wire hangers or clips that could leave impressions or pull the shoulders out of shape.
HERE ARE A FEW TIPS THAT CAN HELP REDUCE YOUR GARMENT’S IMPACT ON THE ENVIRONMENT
We’re convinced that everyone should be able to express their personality through clothes and care about our planet at the same time. That’s why we make sure to minimise the environmental cost of producing garments, but the greatest share of energy consumption in a garment’s life-cycle actually occurs when you wash it. Saving energy and enjoying your favourite clothes longer is easier than you think.
