SILK COTTON LINEN CUPRO

25 Around The World takes pride in the carefully curated fabrics and trims used in each garment. Please take a moment to read through the special care instructions provided below for guidance on how to care for and maintain your garments. Please also refer to the key information on your garments’ care labels.

Silk

Pre-treat any stains before washing with cold water and an oil-free hand or body soap.

Soak for up to 15 minutes in cold water with a gentle soap or use a washing liquid or powder which specifies it can be used for delicate fabrics.

Rinse until the water runs clean, don’t wring dry – this can change the shape of the garment.

Lay the silk flat on top of a towel and in its original shape; use another towel to soak up excess moisture and roll up using a light pressing motion.

Leave indoors until completely dry (avoiding natural sunlight as this can discolour silk).

If you do need to iron, turn your silk garment inside out and when it is 80% dry iron gently using the ‘cool’ setting. Alternatively, silk can be steamed when dry to flatten out small wrinkles.

 

Cotton

Pre-treat any stains with detergent soaked cold water. Place the required amount of detergent (follow the dosage instructions on the pack) on the stains before you load the clothes in the washing machine. Soak for up to 15 minutes.

Wash in cold (30°C or below) water, whether using a washing machine or washing by hand.

Rinse your cotton fabrics on a cool cycle. To avoid shrinkage, wash with minimal agitation.

Give garments a gentle stretch when they come out of the wash to get them back into shape.

Dry clothes flat and out of the sun if possible.

If you have an item that you know is prone to more than 10% shrinkage, hand wash it in cold water.

 

Linen

Linen, much like cotton, does have a tendency to shrink. For that reason, avoid washing linen clothes in hot water and opt for either warm or cold water. If your linen is a dark color, stick with cold to avoid fading.

Linen is best washed with a mild detergent. Avoid the use of fabric softener, and never use bleach on linen clothing, even if it's white.

Always wash linen garments on your machine’s gentle cycle.

Do not crowd the washing machine with too many items at once. This can cause twisting or pulling the linen fabric out of shape.

If you hand wash, only use a gentle swishing motion – never wring, twist or scrub the fabric. Hand washing is recommended for clothes that is not heavily soiled, or for linen fabric with a loose weave, which might be damaged during a wash in a washing machine.

Dry clothes flat and out of the sun if possible. If there is a need for ironing, iron your linen clothes while slightly damp.

 

Tencel

Tencel may be hand-washed in cold water with a gentle detergent.

Tencel will shrink about 3% with the first washing and will resist shrinking from then on. Machine washing, using the gentle cycle, is appropriate for many garments and drip drying is preferable to machine drying. Use a warm iron only. Too much direct heat may scorch the fabric.

 

Cupro

Cupro is the result of the processing of the finest part of cotton (the seeds), wound around a viscose fibre. As well as its washed silk feel, the fibre is both bright and soft. Comfort, extreme fluidity and fresh feeling aside, cupro is also biodegradable and environmentally friendly.
