HOW TO CARE FOR YOUR VANESSA SPOSI PIECE
Our clothes have been made with love in small quantities. Any variations in colour or texture only add to its unique beauty.
Please ensure you care for your swimwear correctly as much as it takes care of you.
Cold hand wash separately in mild soap to remove chlorine and salt from garment.
Do not use fabric softeners. Do not wring, soak or bleach.
Do not tumble dry, iron or dry clean.
Dry flat in shade. Do not leave rolled up wet.
Avoid Chlorine, spa baths, tanning products, sunscreen and oils can which cause damage or mark garments or rinse immediately.
Avoid rough surfaces.
In case of stains (pen marks, oil stains, etc.), try to use a chemical-free dishwashing soap.
To remove deodorant stains from your bikini line, we recommend using a foam make-up sponge.
Try not to bathe in very hot water and never iron or dry your bikini line in a tumble dryer. Direct or high heat will damage the integrity of your swimsuit over time – nylon fibres can melt in the heat.
This swimsuit is unfortunately not sustainable enough, but it is the best we can do for now. We use ECONYL® for our main material, a 100% regenerative nylon made from abandoned fishing nets and nylon waste from the world’s oceans and landfills.
When you wash products made from synthetics, even recycled yarn, tiny pieces of plastic called microfibers are washed into the ocean.
You can use the GUPPYFRIEND laundry bag, which is designed to capture the microplastics in synthetic clothing. Instead of ending up in rivers, lakes and oceans, these plastics stay in the bag. Place your laundry in the bag and wash as normal.
Hand Wash Cold & Air Dry Flat or Professional Dry Clean.
To keep your garment looking its best, hand wash separately in cool water, a small amount of mild detergent can be used, squeeze the excess water and rinse again. To dry, lay the garment on a flat surface to air dry in shade. Avoid tumble dry, chlorine, rough surfaces & drying in direct sunlight. Can be steamed on a low temperature to reduce creasing.
You will find below the tips we recommend for storing your hat:
- ON A SHELF
- ON THE WALL
- IN A HATBOX
We strongly recommend that you do not put our Panama straw hats in a plastic bag, the lack of air dries out the straw and can cause it to break. Our hats are made from natural materials and can change color and shape if exposed to long periods of heat and humidity.
Do not store your hat in your car, prolonged exposure to sunlight and heat will discolour and distort its shape.
CLEANING YOUR HAT
Small stains can be wiped off with a slightly damp white cloth. Do not use a cloth with stain on it, as the stain may transfer to the hat. For a small stain on a felt hat, we recommend that you use a felt sponge to clean the stain.
For larger stains, we recommend that you take your hat to a local hat repair shop for professional cleaning.
Avoid getting our Panama hats wet, as the natural fibres expand and distort their shape.
