WASH GUIDE AND AFTER CARE

We test our garments to ensure their beautiful appearance is maintained after cleaning and the care label is designed to help you look after your garments in the best way possible.


GENERAL CARE

  1. There will be natural colour loss during wear and washing with garment dyed products. To reduce colour loss, wash and dry garment inside out. Care must be taken to avoid colour rub onto light coloured fabrics and upholstery
  2. Care should be taken when wearing, storing and cleaning delicate fabrics to avoid snagging or damage to the garment. Please remove jewellery before trying on
  3. For dark coloured garments, please avoid contact with light coloured fabrics and upholstery as there may be some colour rub

  5. Fringing can get tangled in the washing machine, so always hand wash
  6. Linen garments are made with beautifully textured yarn to give luxurious worn look. The nature and characteristic of linen fabric has slub flaws. Always follow recommended care instructions

WASHING

1. To keep the garment looking its best, always follow the instructions on the care label.

2. Separate your wash into whites, darks and colours to reduce the risk of colours running.

3. Wash garments with contrast trims or panels separately, the fabrics have been designed to be washed together but may absorb dye from other garments - especially important for Black and White.

IRONING

For the perfect press without damage always follow the correct iron setting, follow the symbols on the iron to select the temperature you require. You can scorch, 'glaze' or even melt your clothes if you use the wrong setting so make sure you check the guide specific to your iron.







ACCESSORIES

1. Do not overload your bag, this can put too much strain on the handles and seams of the bag. It can also distort the shape of the bag.

2. Take care of your hat. Scrunching it up, stuffing it in your bag or sitting on it will probably alter the shape!

3. Use a lint roller to clean felt hats.

4. Feathers are a natural product and care should be taken with them to prolong their life. If they get wet allow to dry naturally.


AFTER CARE FOR SHOES

1.We don't offer a fitting service, so make sure the shoes fit you well in store. If you're unsure when you get home, always try your shoes on carpeted surface. We cannot accept worn returns.

2. Our trainers and canvas products, unless we advise you, are not designed to go in a washing machine. If they get dirty let them dry naturally and remove excess dirt with a brush or cloth. Then use a specific fabric cleaner.

3. If you get caught in the rain, allow your leather product to dry naturally. You run the risk of the leather warping if direct heat is used. Stuff with newspaper to help speed up the process and maintain shape.

4. Suede and nubuck are sensitive materials and don't take kindly to oils or creams. Invest in a suede brush and give them a little attention from time to time to keep the nap (texture) raised and looking fresh.

5. Insole socks on sandals may lift due to heat and perspiration. Though we use strong adhesive, this is sometimes unavoidable in normal wear.

6. The plastic or leather pieces at the base of the heel are designed to protect the heel and need to be replaced with wear. Replacement top pieces are supplied with most of our shoes and are easily fitted by a local cobbler.

7. Repair is not always possible if your top pieces wear down to the point that the heel becomes damaged.

8. Baby wipes work wonders on reviving dirty white leather and PU shoes, always test on a small discrete area first.

9. Scuffing can damage and remove beading and gems on embellished products.

10. Espadrilles are traditional beach shoes and are not designed for prolonged city wear or wet weather as the natural materials will perish.
