REUNION CARE GUIDE

In order for your fine purchases to last as long as possible, we have put together a small guide with recommendations for how to take care of them.

LAUNDRY DAY

Try to avoid the fabric softener and the dryer, unfortunately these are neither friendly to fabrics nor to the environment.

It is best to just shake the clothes after washing and hang or lay them flat to dry.
Then remember not to wash at the last minute as self-drying can take a few hours.

Is your favorite viscose dress a bit tight after washing? Try to iron it gently when it's wet, and voilà.
Fabrics such as cotton and viscose will often return to their original shape with a little help.

It is always recommended to follow the washing instructions on the clothes to be sure that nothing goes wrong,
but sometimes it is worth considering that even if the symbol says 40°, it means that the garment can withstand a maximum of 40 degrees,
not that it has to be washed at 40 degrees.
By washing at cooler temperatures, you save on both the garment and the environment.
Of course, this applies depending on how dirty your clothes are, but then it's always good to
spot treat any spots first.

AIR INSTEAD OF WASHING

To avoid washing and wearing out the garment, it is a good idea to just hang it up and air it out between uses.

Usually just an hour or so is enough, but you can hang out in a safe place overnight as well, just make sure it doesn't rain if the garment is hanging without a roof.

To then give your favorite garment an extra boost of freshness, you can always spray on a little textile spray in a lovely scent between washing days.

STEAM THE CLOTHES

Steam is more gentle on the clothing fibers and makes the clothes last longer.
Therefore, a recommendation is to invest in a good steamer.
It's both smooth and simple and you don't have to stick to it with an ironing board, it's just quick
hang the garment on a hanger if you are in a hurry.

It is also a good way to refresh the garment between washes as the steam helps to remove bacteria and unwanted odours.

TANK TOP

MAINTENANCE
If you just take good care of your linen, the reward is a material that will age with pleasure,
significantly slower than other materials and which only gets more beautiful, nicer and better with time!
Please store the linen rolled up and vary the folding so that you avoid unnecessary breakage of the linen fiber.
If you want to preserve the linen's natural shine and texture, it can be good to avoid too much prolonged heat contact.
Your linen is best stored dark and dry.

LAUNDRY
Do not fill the machine completely - linen clothes should be able to move freely for best washing results.
An overcrowded machine can twist and pull the garments so that they lose their shape.
Make sure that all garments in the washing machine have a similar colour, weight and washing instructions to get the best possible results,
and to avoid discolored clothes.
Linen clothes and other textiles made of linen are best if you wash them in lukewarm water.

DRYER
Hang dry or tumble dry on low heat for best durability and feel free to take the garment out when it is slightly damp
you want a more wrinkled effect

JEANS

MAINTENANCE
Instead of washing your jeans after each use, try airing them for a few hours.
If you have brand new jeans, it may be a good idea to wait until four months before the first wash!
In the meantime, a tip is to put the jeans in the freezer or to steam them to remove any odor.

LAUNDRY
Turn the jeans inside out and think about pulling up the zipper or buttoning.
Then wash at a cooler temperature, as this is a good way to preserve the color and fit.

DRYER
Preferably avoid tumble drying, your jeans will thank you in the long run as there is actually a risk of them shrinking.
When you take your jeans out of the washing machine, shake them out before letting them air dry for best results.

FIXED
Even the strongest jeans can end up with tears and holes. To breathe new life into your favorite pair, try making them at home
or take a trip to your local tailor, or why not embrace the misery and try the hollow-jeans trend without
pay extra to get home a pair of "torn jeans"

SILK / SILK

MAINTENANCE
One tip is not to buy silk clothes that are too tight around the shoulders and armpits.
Partly because the fabric can crack when you move, but also because loose fitting clothes do not need to be washed as often as tight ones.
Silk garments feel best when aired.

LAUNDRY
Stains should preferably be spot treated.
Avoid washing silk in the machine as much as possible.
Clothes that consist of some silk are more resistant to machine washing, so always follow the garment's washing instructions and feel free to use a laundry bag.

DRYER
The silk gets wrinkled easily and the very best thing is to steam the silk with a steamer. If you don't have a steamer, you can iron the silk carefully.

SKIN / LEATHER

MAINTENANCE
A classic leather garment or accessory is a long-term investment and will remain chic for seasons
and years ahead.
A little wear looks good, as long as your leather gets the love it deserves every now and then. With the right care, leather can
stay soft and supple longer and even improve over time.
As they are natural materials, it is important to keep leather and skins away from moisture, heat or chemicals.
Too much sunlight can also cause your leather bag to fade over time.

LAUNDRY
The best thing is to clean your leather really properly at least once a year, depending on how much it is used.
To remove light stains, simply wipe the garment with a slightly damp cloth

DRYER
Leather and skins should be air dried at normal room temperature.
