A close look on the fabrics and how to maintain them

 

You will have years of joy with your dress it if you treat it nicely, here is how you should maintain them:

 

Wool Flanell/ Gabardine: The best way to care for your clothing is washing as little as possible. Just clean with a brush and hang regularly to air - outside during the night if possible. Remove stains carefully with a wet cloth. If you need to wash it, we highly recommend to wash the cloth only by hand, don’t wring. Dry on a hanger. Iron carefully by using as little heat as possible. Take care that if you have a ‚hard’ water or water with lots of additives to use the right amount of detergent. 

 

Coat fabric (wool, or cashmere wool mix) : Best way to care for your clothing is washing as little as possible. Just clean with a brush and hang regularly to air - outside during the night if possible. Remove stains carefully with a wet cloth. Dry on a hanger. Iron carefully by using as little heat as possible, there will be barely any ironing needed! Take care that if you have a ‚hard’ water or water with lots of additives to use the right - and the right amount - of detergent. 

 

Linen/Ramie: Best way to care for your clothing is washing by hand and letting it dry outside on a windy day. We highly recommend to wash the cloth only by hand. Dry on a hanger. Iron carefully. Take care that if you have a ‚hard’ water or water with lots of additives to use the right right amount of detergent.

Ramie

Ramie is a plant based fabric, similar to Linen yet with a more soft touch. Which makes it very flowy an don't stiff at all. Another benefit: when the fabric crinckles they also almost disappear when the piece of clothing is placed on a hanger for a while. For its remarkable structure we use a 250g/ sqm fabric for our dresses.


For it being rather heavy, its totally opaque even when its white.

Wool-Cashmere-Mix

For our Atropa Skirt we use a really heavy fabric, about 500 gr/sqm, which consists of wool and cashmere which is regularly used for coats and jackets.

Standardly used traditional button - Edelweiß

High in the alps you might find the flower Edelweiss (Leontopodium alpinum) - based on the heritage we have chosen this 15mm wide silvery metal button to be our standard button. 
If that model is not for you, we offer you some other options upon request.

 

 

Press buttons and others

Some patterns and sizes require additional, sometimes hidden, closuring options. Therefor you might find some metal press buttons, tiny metal hooks and zippers as part of your attire. 
Note that the zipper is made of plastic due to this being the most durable and fabric protecting option.
