Care

80% of the carbon footprint of a clothing item occurs post-purchase.

Please take the time to read and follow this guide.

Wash Less and Wash Better

Unfortunately, while a durable fabric, polyester is known to shed microfibres when washed. 35% of all microplastics in the ocean come from clothes, making the fashion industry the world’s second-largest waterway polluter.

As such, please gently hand wash your set in cold water with a greywater safe and low phosphate liquid detergent. This will limit microfibre shedding and conserve water and energy.

Washing this way is best for your set and best for the planet. Please lay your set to dry flay in the shade or in a well-ventilated room. Do not iron, do not tumble dry, do not dry clean.

Reuse, Rework, Resell

The fast-fashion industry has created a ‘throw-away’ culture of overproduction and consumption, and Australia is now the second-highest consumer of textiles per person in the world (after the US).

Not only are we buying more clothes, but we’re keeping them for less time. Globally, an estimated 92 million tonnes of textile waste is thrown away each year, expected to reach more than 134 million tonnes per year by 2030.

We’re hoping you’ll be cherishing your set forever, but if/when the time comes for you to say goodbye, please consider the environment by reworking or reselling your set instead of throwing it away.
