CLASSIC T-SHIRT COTTON

FABRIC DESCRIPTION

Our 100% cotton is made in Italy and is a wonderful natural yarn that grows with minimal impact to our planet. This cotton supports biodiversity and the ecosystem, 

improving soil quality for less water usage. "100% cotton" means that it is made from fibers collected from the plant and the yarn does not mix, making it a stronger, softer and more comfortable natural product. The 100% cotton yarn wicks moisture and is breathable, allowing the skin to breathe and reducing the possibility of breakouts. 

The classic t-shirt cotton is our evergreen and permanent item on all our collections.

This is a general guide on how to care for your cotton garment, helping you make your clothes look better and last longer.

 

GARMENT CARE DESCRIPTION

WASH CAREFULLY

Cotton needs to be washed a little more often since it does not have the natural anti-bacterial and odour-resistant properties. We suggest washing it at 30°C or hand wash for spot treatments, in order to expose the yarn to less stress , prolonging the lifetime of the garment. Since its coloured garments, we recommend turning them inside out before washing, for the purpose of protecting the outer surface of the fabric.

DRY NATURALLY 

Give a gentle stretch or shake when the piece comes out of the washing machine to get them back into its natural shape. To prevent shrinkage or deformation in the drying process, the yarn should be air-dried and out of the sun if possible and dry it on a plane surface. 

IRONING & STEAMING

Cotton garments often don’t need ironing if you gently shake or stretch them when they come out of the washing machine and let them dry on a plane surface. If the garments do need ironing, then we recommend placing a slightly damp cloth over the thread to avoid direct heat ruining the material or using the steam setting on the iron.

This is a general guide on how to care for your Viscose garment, helping you make your clothes look better and last longer.

 

GARMENT CARE DESCRIPTION

WASH CAREFULLY 

Viscose is a highly absorbent fabric and therefore very delicate especially when wet. This is why hand-washing is gentle enough to prevent damage. Fill a sink or basin with cold water and add a mild detergent. Gently submerge the Viscose item and swish around in order to preserve the colors and brightness!  Allow the clothing to soak up to 30 minutes. Drain the tub and then fill again with more cold water, or run the garment underneath the faucet. Continue until suds are gone and the water runs clear. After hand-washing, gently squeeze out excess water. If you opt to use a washing machine, place your garment inside a mesh bag, wash in cold water, select the delicate cycle or «Hand wash» program and select the slowest spin speed. 

OPT FOR A NATURAL DRYING

Do not put in the dryer, it is better to allow the viscose garment to air dry flat, on a hanger. Gently pull the garment and shape it to return to its original shape as it begins to dry; it is essential never to excessive wringing or twisting wet viscose since it can be damaged easily. Don't leave it wrinkled, as that will create wrinkles that can be difficult to remove. Let the garment air dry flat or hang on a padded hanger to drip dry. Lay the wet piece on a thick cotton towel and roll it up to absorb most of the water. Once dry, it will recover its original shape.

IRONING & STEAMING

It is only during this step that the viscose garment will recover its original size, shape and lightness. To remove wrinkles, use a medium heat temperature (110 °C) on your iron - we recommend you to select the program «Silk». Viscose should be ironed on the reverse side when it is still wet or with a pressing cloth for more precaution. Also, a clothes steamer can work well to relax wrinkling or using the steam from the iron.
