Care tips

It is easy to forget that a garment has a life that goes beyond the retail/online store. Garments have a use phase, commonly called the consumer phase, and a disposal phase. For this reason, garments can be maintained, passed along and kept for a lifetime and at the very end donated or recycled over and over again. Here are our top tips for easy care of your clothes.

Sustainable Materials

The majority of the fashion environmental impact happens while manufacturing textiles, in the phase where fabric and materials are grown or made, then spun, dyed and finished into something we recognise as clothing. Wearing clothes made of sustainable materials will create fewer long-term environmental problems and have a positive impact on the planet. Here are some of the sustainable alternatives that are changing the industry for the better. They take into account the manufacturing processes, welfare of people, animals and the environment to help reduce fashion’s footprint.

Recycled Polyester

Polyester is a manufactured, synthetic fibre and it is the world ́s most widely used fibre. Petroleum, the main ingredient in manufacturing polyester, is a non-renewable and a finite resource. The manufacturing process for polyester is fully chemical, energy intensive and it releases greenhouse gases.
When choosing recycled polyester you are keeping that fabric in the loop for longer and reducing the need for new materials.

Upcycled material

Unwanted and unconventional products such as plastic bottles, recovered fishing nets are recycled in creative and innovative ways to make products of better quality and with a higher environmental value. This includes Recycled PET, recycled nylon from fishing nets, creating endless possibilities to reducing the need for new fibres and protects natural resources.

Organic Cotton

Organic farming uses natural processes rather than artificial ones such as synthetic fertilizers and pesticides, this reduces soil, water and air contamination. It reduces greenhouse emissions resulting from the production of synthetic fertilizers and pesticides.
By combining traditional means with innovation and science it benefits the environment and promotes healthier work conditions for all involved.

Better Viscose

Viscose is one of the most used forestry sourced products, in case of certified viscose, forests used are sustainably-managed. What does it mean? Forests used are traceable, managed in a responsible way to avoid deforestation and keep forests healthy.
A closed-loop system is used in the production, meaning chemicals are recovered, filtered and reused. There are various brand names such as Lenzing Modal, Ecovero, Lenzing Viscose and FSC Certified Viscose.

Outerwear_4_08_no

Lyocell

Lyocell, the commonly known name for a biodegradable fibre made out of regenerated wood pulp from trees such as birch, oak and eucalyptus with the same look and feel of cotton. An example is Lenzing’s branded lyocell known as TENCEL®, this is biodegradable, sustainably sourced and made in a closed-loop system that recycles 99% of the chemicals used.

Care tips

Small actions taken collectively can add up to real change. According to Mistra Future Fashion research, three percent of the impact is in the consumer phase. This is how we relate to our clothes and how we take care of them. While this seems so little, considering how little it would take us to get that number to zero, why not do it? Here are a few easy tips to help you be part of the sustainability movement and be part of the change.

Outerwear_4_02_fi

Drying

  • Save energy and keep your clothes in better shape by air-drying or hang in the laundry drying areas. By avoiding tumble drying you are helping your clothes maintain their quality and shape for longer.
  • Hang your clothes in the shower and the steam will help reduce creases, no ironing required.
  • Many dry cleaning methods are harmful to the environment due to the chemicals used in the process, so avoid where possible. Alternatively, ask your dry cleaner to use eco-friendly products instead.
Outerwear_4_02_fi

Washing

  • We tend to wash clothes more than is actually necessary, instead target individual stains and let the garment air-dry naturally.
  • When reading the care label, remember the temperature mentioned is the highest temperature the garment can be washed without compromising its quality.
  • When choosing a detergent for your garments, always make sure you use one that is eco-labelled and free from hazardous chemicals, such as phosphates, chlorine and chlorine compounds. Look for Swan eco-labelled or other certified detergents and use the recommended amount.
  • Many softeners contain environmentally hazardous chemicals and they do not benefit your clothes as softener can interfere with moisture-wicking and absorption properties. We suggest avoid using them or switch to eco alternatives.

Shoe care

Well-made shoes should last for years, but regular maintenance and cleaning will keep them in good condition. Make your platforms as good as new by re-gluing the sole. Get acquainted with your local cobbler for heel and sole replacements. Keep an eye out for heel tips or soles wearing down, as if you leave them too long before repair, irreversible damage can be caused to the heel itself.
We have a selection of eco-products to help keep your shoes in good condition.
