“Care for your clothes, like the good friends they are.” - Joan Crawford
All our pieces are responsibly made to stick around with you for years to come. Here's how to keep them looking great and lasting long while being mindful of the environment.
Rinse swimwear after each use
After wearing your swimwear, make sure to thoroughly rinse it to remove any salt or chlorine that could potentially damage the fabric and hardware.
Hand wash in cool water
Instead of using a washing machine, gently hand wash your swimwear in cool water. This helps reduce microfiber shedding and minimizes fabric wear.
Consider using a Guppyfriend
If you choose to machine wash your swimwear, we recommend using a Guppyfriend bag to help capture microfibers and prevent them from entering the water system.
Remove wooden pearls before washing
Before washing your swimwear, ensure that any wooden pearls or embellishments are detached to avoid damage during the washing process.
Avoid spin drying
Instead of using the spin cycle, gently squeeze off excess water from your swimwear and then line dry it in the shade. This helps preserve the fabric and extends its lifespan
Avoid harsh abrasive surfaces
When wearing or storing your swimwear, avoid contact with rough or abrasive surfaces that can cause snags or tears in the fabric.
Avoid harsh chemical-treated pools/spas
Refrain from wearing our swimwear in pools or spas that use harsh chemicals, as they can potentially damage the fabric and fade its colour.
Avoid ironing, wringing, soaking, or bleaching
It's best to avoid these actions as they can negatively impact the fabric and shape of your swimwear.
Use mild natural detergent if needed
If necessary, use a gentle and mild natural detergent to wash your swimwear.
Wash with cold water
Use a maximum temperature of 30 degrees Celsius when washing.
Wash only when necessary
Avoid excessive washing. Instead, air out items when possible and clean them only when they really need it.
Wash and iron inside out
Turn garments inside out before washing and ironing to protect any prints or embroidery on the outer surface.
Choose natural detergent
Opt for environmentally-friendly and natural detergents.
Avoid spin drying
Instead of using the spin cycle on your washing machine, gently squeeze out excess water and then proceed to line dry.
Line dry in the shade
Hang your clothes to dry in a well-ventilated area away from direct sunlight, as it can cause fading or damage to the fabric.
Wash similar colours together
Sort your laundry by color to prevent color bleeding. Wash garments with similar colours together to maintain their original appearance.
