    Linen has a set of unique properties; it’s incredibly durable, highly absorbent, lint free and non-allergenic. Not only is it all of these things whilst being completely natural, it also gets more beautiful as it ages.

    We recommend washing your linen at 30 degrees, with similar colours and prefer to dry naturally.   You may find that your linen is a little stiff once air dried-this will soften as soon as it gets moisture back from the air through wear. We love it without the iron being involved. You may choose to be a little smarter though-in which case it can cope with a hot iron.

    Our tweed is 100% wool.   Wool is one of the oldest fibres known to man and we love it not only for its excellent natural qualities but also for its eco credentials once it reaches the end. Wool is naturally:

    • water repellent, so tends to feel dry and comfortable even in damp weather;
    • odour resistant;
    • stain resistant;
    • sun safe, it protects the skins against UV pollutants;
    • warm and cool, it reacts to changes in body temperature and is both breathable and an excellent insulator;
    • anti-static (so attracts less dust and lint);
    • wrinkle resistant;
    • flame resistant;
    • Biodegradable (once it really is at end of life, it will eventually dissolve back into the soil)

    Given all of this, it needs cleaning far less than you think and will usually be best after a hand spot clean and air dry. It prefers dry cleaning where you must.

    Where we’re using tweed, we try to line to avoid any complaints of itchiness that I know mine are prone to. We like to line in 100% cotton-usually lawn, which is a fine (but sturdy) and incredibly soft weave.

    Elastics and fasteners
    Our elastics are 100% organic or recycled cotton and rubber and we try to ensure that our ties are also.   They’re designed to withstand the same care treatment as the lead fabric of your garment.

    Our buttons are made from 100% corozo. Corozo is the eco-friendliest of materials and comes from the nuts of the tagua palm tree, which grow in Central America. They’re made into buttons for us in England, according to heritage designs.   They develop a lovely patina with age and will survive the care guidance on your garment. Occasionally we’ll use some limited-edition vintage buttons, where we manage to find some that work well. We’ll always let you know on our garment descriptions.
