Do not bleach, and when washing please avoid conventional detergents because in general they contain microplastics and toxic substances that endangerous aquatic systems and can produce some damages to our health.

As such, we not even tested dry clean on our garments! However, if you ever have to choose dry cleaning, ask for companies that use innocuos processes for the environment and for health ans for example liquid carbon dioxide.
