Garment care

The right care for your clothes

We want your clothes to last for a long time. Therefore, we have compiled a few useful tips for cleaning and caring for your favourite garments.

Every garment has a care label that contains information about the permissible treatment and care. Care treatment adhering to the label's specifications will prevent your garment from taking damage.

Please note that specifications do not guarantee that every stain can be successfully removed. Gentler cleaning methods and lower temperatures are allowed anytime.

Please find the current care symbols regarding washing bleaching, dryiing, ironing and professional cleaning with their meaning.

    • Easy-care items, for example, made of modal, viscose or synthetic fibres (polyacrylic, polyester and polyamide). Reduce the quantity of laundry (the drum should not be more than half full). Select an appropriate washing programme. Avoid spinning or do spin for short periods only to minimise the risk of creasing.

  • 40°C delicates wash cycle
    • Items made of machine-washable wool, for example. This wash cycle has a particularly gentle mechanical action. Reduce the quantity of laundry substantially (the drum should be not more than one-third full.) Select an appropriate washing programme (e.g. delicates, wool).

Do not rub, pull or wring out. Then rinse the textiles well, press the superfluous water out carefully and pull the items into shape. Quickly treat colour and sensitive wash items and do not leave them in a wet condition.

  • Do not wash
    • Items with this label should not be washed. They may also be sensitive to any type of wet treatment, or due to their size, they are not suited for treatment in a household washing machine.

  • All bleach types

  • Only oxygen bleaches permitted
    • The triangle with two oblique lines indicates that oxygen bleach (contained in universal detergents) is permitted, but not chlorine bleach.

  • Iron at moderate temperature (150°C)
    • Corresponding to the "wool/silk/polyester/viscose" setting: iron under a moderately moist press cloth. A steam iron may be used. Avoid heavy pressure. Do not pull out of shape.

  • Do not iron hot (110°C)
    • Corresponding to the "polyacrylic, polyamide (nylon), acetate" iron temperature setting: shiny or pressure-sensitive pieces should be ironed with press cloth or ironed inside out. Caution when using steam irons (work without steam if possible). Do not pull out of shape.

  • Do not iron
    • Irreversible changes must be expected if an iron is used.

Was bedeutet 'Organic Cotton'?

Organic Cotton – oder Bio-Baumwolle – wird aus natürlichen, nicht gentechnisch veränderten Samen gezogen und kommt ohne Pestizide aus. Das ist nicht nur für die Haut angenehmer, sondern Bio-Baumwolle hat dank ihrer hohen Qualität auch eine längere Lebensdauer als herkömmliche Baumwolle. Da uns die Natur zu unseren Styles inspiriert, liegt uns ihr Erhalt besonders am Herzen. Die Verwendung von Bio-Baumwolle ist eine der Maßnahmen, mit der wir unseren Teil zu einer nachhaltigen Produktion beitragen.

Was bedeutet 'Eco Cashmere'?

Ein zweites Leben für eine der edelsten Naturfasern der Welt: Die hohe Qualität feinen Cashmeres ist dafür prädestiniert, recycelt zu werden und auf diese Weise Abfälle zu reduzieren. Für den von uns verwendeten Eco-Cashmere wird gebrauchter Cashmere sorgfältig verlesen, aufbereitet und mit neu gewonnenen Fasern zu luxuriösem Strickgarn versponnen. Wir arbeiten ausschließlich mit Spinnereien in Italien zusammen und sparen so Transportwege und CO2-Emissionen ein – das ist nur einer der hohen Ansprüche unserer eigenen Nachhaltigkeitsphilosophie.

The Oyster Capsule Collection

Why did we name our luxury collection 'Oyster'? It is the inspiring yet very natural specialness of the valuable Sylt oyster in the seabed. This natural originality also defines the jumpers, accessories and trousers from the 'Oyster' collection. We have provided a key piece from each product group with luxurious details down to the smallest element, with fine cashmere or precious mother-of-pearl – from the Sylt oyster, of course.

What does Organic Cotton mean?

Organic cotton is grown from natural, non-GMO seeds and does not contain any pesticides. Not only is this more comfortable for the skin, but organic cotton also lasts longer than conventional cotton, thanks to its high quality. Since nature inspires us to create our styles, its preservation is especially close to our hearts. The use of organic cotton is one of the ways in which we do our bit to ensure sustainable production.

What does Eco Cashmere mean?

A second life for one of the world's finest natural fibres: the high quality of fine cashmere is predestined to be recycled and thus to reduce waste. For the eco-cashmere we use, pre-owned cashmere is carefully sorted, processed and, together with newly obtained fibres, spun into luxurious knitting yarn. We work exclusively with spinning mills in Italy, saving on transport and CO2 emissions – just one of the high standards of our own sustainability philosophy.
