Cotton fibre is a plant and comes from the fruit of the cotton plant. We prefer cotton for its suppleness, lightness and ease of maintenance. Soft and pleasant to the touch; cotton has a high absorption capacity.
.Machine wash: Cotton can be washed in a washing machine. We recommend washing at 30 degrees maximum on the cotton cycle. A liquid or powder detergent can be used to wash it, one or the other will be chosen according to the colours.
.Dry cleaning: Dry cleaning can be indispensable in certain cases (stains, embroideries, delicate patterns...). You can then call a professional. Cotton can withstand any type of solvent.
.Drying: Machine drying is very suitable for cotton garments (up to 80 degrees). However, if the garment is rather fragile (fine gauge or embroidery details, pearls...), prefer a soft drying or even an open air drying.
.Ironing: Cotton can be ironed at a temperature up to 200 degrees, you can freely use steam to remove wrinkles. However, ironing should be done at a medium temperature to avoid yellowing the cotton. Also, ironing on the reverse side of the garment is always more respectful of the material.
Linen fibre is derived from the stem of the linen plant. The .MAISON LES ÉNERVÉS uses linen for its coolness, as it is ideal for the summer. It is absorbent, so it regulates the temperature between the body and the garment.
.Machine washing: It is important to choose a good washing product and not to overdose it. For colours, it is preferable to use a "special colour" detergent, without any bleaching agent that could alter or dull the colour. We recommend washing at 30° maximum.
.Hand washing: Knitted garments linnen can be washed by hand, taking into account the precautions given on the label. Use a liquid detergent and rub the fabric gently without pulling too hard to maintain the shape of the knitwear.
.Dry cleaning: Dry cleaning may be necessary in some cases. You can call in a professional.
.Drying: Machine drying may be appropriate for garments made of linen. However, if the garment is rather fragile (embroidery details, pearls, etc.), prefer gentle drying or air drying. linen is usually dried flat, especially for knitwear.
.Ironing: Ideally, a linen garment should be ironed wet at a high temperature (220 degrees). The steam softens the creases, which can make ironing sometimes difficult. Ironing on the reverse side is always recommended for this type of garment.
