Material - a close look on the fabrics and how to maintain them

 

You will have years of joy with your dress if you treat it nicely. Here is how you should maintain it:

 

Fine wool fabric (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): 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. 

 

Plant fibres (linen/cotton/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 but iron to soften. Take care that if you have a ‚hard’ water or water with lots of additives to use the right right amount of detergent.
