+ Wash Guide & After Care
We test our garments to ensure their beautiful appearance is maintained after cleaning and the care label is designed to help you look after your garments in the best way possible.
- To keep the garment looking its best, always follow the instructions on the care label.
- Separate your wash into whites, darks and colours to reduce the risk of color running.
- Wash garments with contrast trims or panels separately, the fabrics have been designed  to be washed together but may be absorb dye from other garments – especially important for black and white.
- Wash denim and coated fabrics inside out to protect the surgace and prolong the depth of the color.
- We don’t recommend you tumble dry your clothes, it can cause shrinkage, fade color and damage your garment.
- Reshape jersey when you take it out of the washing machine.
- Fringing can get tangled in the washing machine, hand wash where possible.
- Dry knitwear flat as it can stretch of ‘drop’ when you hang it.
