Cashmere is one of the rarest fibres in the world, combed from the undercoat of Chinese and Mongolian goats. Because it is soft and fuzzy, cashmere can be prone to pilling, caused by rubbing during regular use. This is perfectly normal, and pilling can preferably be removed with a sweater comb.
The special shine without the influence of chemicals, the uniquely light fabric, the inimitable skin-friendliness, the touch of the particularly noble, but also the charm of the fairy-tale origin pull people under the spell of silk. At the same time, what is special also requires exceptional care:
- Cold to lukewarm hand wash with silk shampoo
- Handle with care when wet
- After 5 minutes, rinse with water and a teaspoon of wine vinegar
- Roll up in a dry towel to remove any remaining water
- Then lay out flat
- Iron slightly damp from the wrong side (not too hot)
❌ Never come into contact with deodorant
❌ Do not expose to the bleaching sun for a long time
❌ Never wring out or spray water while ironing
❌ Do not remove any stains individually
The light fiber feels soft on the skin and is pleasantly airy, especially in summer.
For the next summer vacation, rolled cotton clothing is not only stowed away to save space, it also creases less.
Cotton is a natural material that is absorbent, breathable and hard-wearing. That's why it's our favorite material for our T-shirts.
- Garments such as jeans, tops and shirts should not be washed over 40 degrees Celsius - however, individual manufacturer instructions must be taken into account here.
- Cotton items can be hand-wash products, depending on the processing.
- There is a trick to prevent cotton fabrics from creasing so badly during washing: Spin the laundry at a maximum of 1,000 revolutions.
Viscose is a chemically produced fiber from a natural raw material, a so-called regenerated fiber. Viscose is similar in appearance to cotton, not a synthetic fiber, but a product made from natural cellulose. Viscose is also used for shiny effects such as lining materials or for our special crinkle fabrics with their specific look.
Viscose combines the best properties of natural fibers: the look of skin-friendly cotton and the feel of fine silk.
As a natural product, it is skin-friendly and also prevents unpleasant sweat odor on the fabric. The pure viscose fabric has a strong tendency to wrinkle, which can be alleviated by adding other fibers such as crepe yarn. Viscose doesn't stretch.
Viscose can be colored almost any way you want, shows brilliant colors as well as a matt look or a silky sheen, which is why it is our most popular material for our own prints.
In contrast to leather and fur, no animal has to give its life for our wool for the well-being of people. The shearing gives the raw material for wool production.
At the beginning of woolly well-being is the shearing of the respective animal. The raw material obtained is thoroughly washed, degreased and can then be dyed or bleached. The spinning process then uses the tangled mountain of fibers to produce high-quality wool threads of various thicknesses. Different yarns are created depending on the production using the worsted or carded yarn process. Carded yarns are more voluminous.
If wool is not cared for properly, it can easily shrink and feel ugly.
- Often it can only be washed by hand and only with a mild detergent or wool detergent.
- Wool is self-cleaning, sometimes airing the garment is enough
- Ironing is done on level 1 at most, with a cloth between wool and iron.
- The dryer is absolutely taboo for wool!
- Lay out flat to dry
