Shop-Label Care Guide

We source high quality brands and products which are made to last and treasure.  Taking good care of your much-loved pieces is key to their longevity, so we have put together some useful tips on how to care for each different fabrication below.


    • We recommend hand washing your cashmere but you can also machine wash if you have a “delicate/woolens” cycle on your washing machine.
    • Treat stains with a clean cloth and dab of water, or for more stubborn stains use a very gentle stain remover.
    • Use a cashmere/wool friendly hand wash detergent and wash inside out. Do not use a fabric softener as it shortens the lifespan of the garment.
    • To drain excess water, lay garment flat on a towel then roll up in the towel. Make sure you don’t stretch the sweater when doing this. Arrange it back to its natural shape and leave to dry flat.
    • Do not iron or tumble dry, use a steamer if you have one otherwise just hang the garment once dry and creases should relax.
    • Store your cashmere in a breathable storage bag and make it sure it is clean (especially when storing in-between seasons). Keep moths away with cedar blocks.
    • Cashmere pills can be easily removed with a cashmere comb, sweater stone, de-pilling device or (for the brave) a sharp razor.


      • We recommend machine washing your denim inside out in cold water to preserve the colour and elasticity in stretch denim fabrications.  
      • Coated denim should not be washed as the coating will eventually rub off.  Rather place them inside a ziplock bag and put them in the freezer for about a week.  This will remove odours and bacteria.
      • Don’t use detergent that contain brighteners and don’t use fabric softener as this will wear down the fabric and elasticity faster.
      • Leave to dry naturally or tumble dry on a low/cool setting.
      • Don’t iron your denim, this will damage the elasticity and make them wear
      • Do take note that denim is meant to fade and whisker naturally over time.


      • Most brands recommend dry cleaning silk garments, but you can also hand wash them
      • If you have a trusted “delicate” setting on your washing machine then you can use that too, but always use a laundry bag and wash with like colours.
      • Hand wash in cold water only and use a mild laundry detergent optimised for delicate fabrics.
      • Don’t twist and wring-out the excess water from your silk items, rather place them on a white cotton towel, fold the towel over and gently blot it.
      • Never use a tumble dryer!
      • Hang the garment on a hanger to drip dry inside and away from direct sunlight.  Sun will cause silks to fade and discolour.


      • Always get a professional to clean your leather and suede.
      • Spray your suede or leather shoes with a protectant to prevent stains.  A suede eraser is also a handy tool for removing marks.
      • Keep your leather jackets and shoes clean by regularly wiping them down with a soft, dry cloth.  For suede a bristled brush works well too just keep the strokes in one direction.
      • To prevent fading, don’t leave leather or suede in direct sunlight.
