The first step to a long lasting wardrobe is to care for your garments
Cashmere comes from Mongolian goat hairs and can therefore be washed in water, either by hand (recommended option) or washing machine. If your cashmere is stained, dry cleaning is the best option. Always turn the garment inside out. For hand-wash use cool water, and a delicate or specialist washing detergent Ph 8+. You can also use baby shampoo to maintain an ultra-soft texture.
By machine, wash your cashmere knitwear only on a delicate, wool or hand wash cycle at a cool temperature of 30°C, using a short cycle on a low spin (no more than 30 minutes). Be careful not to leave the garment inside the machine after washing. For Silk-Cashmere, you can follow this cashmere care guide.

The cardinal rule of cashmere storage: fold, don’t hang as it will distort the shape of your garment. When not using for an extended period, place inside a dust bag or resealable garment container to protect it from moths; place lavender or mothballs inside. Hanging rosemary in your wardrobe is an effective organic alternative.
To remove creases, turn your garment inside out and iron at a low temperature with a cloth between the cashmere and the iron. Never iron directly onto the garment.
Pilling is normal for cashmere due to the shorter fibres compared to wool. When this starts to be more noticeable, it can be easily removed using a Luca Faloni cashmere comb. Lay your knit on a hard, flat surface and brush from top to bottom in short strokes, applying medium pressure. This process will make the garment look like new. After this initial pilling removal session, the garment will pill less often, but it is good practice to repeat this once per season. For Silk-Cashmere, you can follow this cashmere care guide.
With every wash, linen becomes softer and its natural beauty and lustrous quality are enhanced. Linen is highly absorbent and benefits from being washed separately from other fabrics. Wash in lukewarm or 30°C (cold) and if possible, use a mild soap or a non-biological detergent to maintain the colour of your linen. Wash inside out on a low cycle, to prevent colour loss and not to damage the buttons. Remember, never tumble or bleach linen as the harsh chemicals damage and degrade the fibres of the cloth.Explore Our Linen Collection
For the best results, run your iron across the front and reverse whilst the linen is still a little bit damp so it will be easier to remove creases. To remove additional wrinkles, lay a damp, neutral coloured cotton T-shirt over your linen before running a warm iron on a high steam setting across it.Explore Our Linen Collection
Before washing, undo all the buttons, including the cuffs and remove any collar stays. Wash inside out to expose the fibres to less stress, prolonging the lifetime of the garment and to protect the buttons.
Piqué and cotton shirts should be washed on a 30°C cycle. Remember, where necessary wash dark and light colours separately.
Cotton shirts and polos or can typically withstand high heat. For best results, garments should be slightly moist and iron on the reverse.
Spray the shirt collar with water to lightly moisten. Lay the collar flat and start ironing the underside from one point to another. Flip the collar over and repeat on the other side.
Spread the button cuffs open. Iron both sides of the cuff but avoid ironing over the buttons.
Move the iron carefully around the shirt’s front buttons. Iron each side of the shirt, moving the iron from the shoulder down to the bottom.
Anchor one of the shirt’s sleeves into the square edge of your ironing board and lay the shirt flat. Start ironing at the top of the shirt and then move the iron down. Slide the shirt over to iron the other half of the shirt.
Use the sleeve seam as your guide for laying the shirt sleeve flat on the ironing board. Make sure the sleeve is flat and smooth before you iron or else you may be cementing creases on the other side. Start ironing from the top of the sleeve to the cuff and repeat on the other side.
