When looking for the materials that best animate our designs, our priority is quality, responsibility and respect for the environment. All the materials used are nature-friendly and exclude real fur and animal skin. Cotton, silk, alpaca, wool and viscose make up the pallet of materials.
Recognizing the need for the sustainability of our products, we choose to use Organic Cotton, without synthetic additions, which maintains the highest standards and is certified by the Global Organic Textile Standard (GOTS).
Alpaca fibers are among the purest materials, while being incredibly long-lasting. The producers of wool we cooperate with are located in Peru, Germany, Spain and Italy.
A material with a 4500-year history and an impressive manufacturing process. The silk we use comes to us from reliable manufacturers in Paris, Florence and Venice.
We select organic fibers from flax. It is one of the oldest textiles in the world, known for its durability, as well as the cool and gentle sensation it leaves on the body. The fabrics come from France and Italy.
Flowers are the most beautiful expression of nature and therefore could not be absent from packages that will reach our clients. The handmade floral compositions that accompany our clothes inside the package maintain their color, shape and aroma indelibly, protecting the clothing, fibers and wool. Fleurs

The knitwear is washed by hand in lukewarm or cold water. Avoid squeezing.
If there are synthetic materials in the composition, wash it in the washing machine at 30 ° C using only a softener.
Before hanging it, wrap it in a dry, white towel to drain as much of moisture as possible. Always hang it in a shady place and avoid heat sources. It is enough to steam and lay it flat by hand for it to return to its original shape.
Keep it flat on a flat surface and do not hang it on a hanger.
It is good to wear the knitwear with 24-hour breaks to let it resume its shape.
If small knots are developed, it is not a sign of poor quality, on the contrary: knitted creations are a living organism that eliminates dead cells on their own. To remove the fluff and knots gently remove them by hand as long as the garment is still damp.
Finally, when it’s time to store it, wash it thoroughly and place it in a cloth bag (e.g. pillowcase).
If the wardrobe has moisture, put a chalk that will absorb it. Dried orange peels will effectively protect the clothes from moths in a natural and pleasant way.
The company uses high quality materials for its clothes, such as cotton, polyester, wool, viscose, linen, muslin and silk.
We shall inform you below about the composition of each garment as well as about the way of caring for them.
The clothes made from cotton fabrics are very durable. Therefore you can wash them in the washing machine at 40oC. Remember that mild and low temperatures are more environmentally friendly.
Prefer to wash linen fabrics by hand with lukewarm water, avoiding excessive rubbing. If you put them in the washing machine, the white ones can be washed at 60oC while the colored ones at 40oC, without any spinning.
The linen is ironed at a high temperature and preferably with steam. They are also easier to iron if you add ironing spray starch before the last wash cycle
Silk is a natural fiber obtained by unwinding silkworm cocoons. Hardworking spinners spin thin threads up to 4 km long. Silk is distinguished for its special shine, high degree of fineness and light weight. The silk fabrics are washed by hand. But if your washing machine has a program for silks, you can use it without fear. Silks should not be sun-dried. They are ironed or steamed while slightly damp.
Genuine leather is an animal product and requires special care. So each leather type should receive different care. Dry the leather garment on a hanger at room temperature and not in direct sunlight. Never hang leather clothes in the closet when they are wet (because of risk of mold). Leather is best ironed turned inside out using a low heat level and a dry cloth on top. No steam should be used before wearing the leather for the first time. To protect it from moisture, spray the garment with a CFC leather waterproofing agent.
The main material of jeans is cotton. The diagonal weave with yarns of different colors (usually white and blue) creates the specific design of the jeans where one side of the fabric has a glossy blue hue while the other is white. Denim is not washed at temperatures above 60oC, while stretchy denim should be washed up to 30oC only, using detergents for sensitive clothes without bleach. Turn your jeans and denim inside out before washing to avoid white stripes (bleaching) during spinning. To avoid discoloration of other fabrics, denim must be washed separately for the first time. Leave your demins hanging on a radiator or on a heated hanger. Do not forget to turn your garment to help it dry evenly. You can iron our denim if you like, but it is not necessary. However, to achieve a perfect ironing result, set a high temperature and use plenty of steam.
