Care & Maintenance Guide
Raw Denim Care
We recommend wearing your raw denim for 3-6 months without washing to break them in. When you decide to wash them, turn your jeans inside out and wash with cold water, by themselves because indigo does bleed for the first couple washes. If you wash them in a washing machine, use the highest water level, most gentle cycle possible, and little or no detergent (color-safe detergent is best). Wearing your jeans in the shower, while swimming, or washing them in a sink or tub are all great options as well. Hang to dry, still inside out.
Cashmere & Wool
Many care labels recommend dry cleaning cashmere, but you can gently hand-wash most cashmere knits in cool water with a mild shampoo (after all, it’s goat hair). Squeeze the suds gently through the fabric and do not rub or stretch it. Carefully rinse it in clean water until all the shampoo has been removed and the water runs clear. Keep the water temperature consistent between rinses. Do not wring. Instead, roll it up in a dry towel to get rid of excess water. Reshape and let dry flat on a fresh towel.
Pilling (the abrasion of short fibers into small balls) on the surface of garments is normal, but better-quality cashmere will pill considerably less and should not pill after the first few wears. Remove any pilling carefully by hand or with a sweater shaver.
It’s best to fold and store cashmere in breathable cotton clothing bags. Cashmere is delicate and hanging can cause snags or distort the shape of the shoulders. Make sure cashmere is clean before you put it away. Moths are attracted to natural fibers with body oils and stains. Folding sweaters around tissue paper can help reduce wrinkles.
You do not have to treat your leather items, but if you would like to treat them we suggest you follow these steps:
1. Apply a good quality leather protector spray to clean, dry leather. Test in an inconspicuous place. This can keep the leather from drying out and reduce the tendency of the leather to stain.
2. Clean leather goods by simply wiping them with a soft, damp cloth.
3. Avoid using a leather cleaner that contains oils, as cleaning oils can trap moisture and dirt, staining the leather. Ink marks, grease, and oil stains are unfortunately not removable and should be left alone.
4. If the leather is stained, take it to a professional leather cleaner who will have the expertise to remove the stain.
