How do I care for my Muntagnard products?
Proper care of garments is critical to making them last longer and minimizing environmental impact. Luckily, taking good care of your garments no longer takes a lot of time or effort. All it takes is a little know-how. In this section, we give you tips on how to keep both your clothes and our planet clean and sustainable.
All garments need and deserve some love and care. In the care instructions below, we show you how to wash, dry and generally care for your garments in the best, safest and most environmentally friendly way.
Our MANGOLA products made from premium cotton from Greece can be cared for like normal cotton items. We recommend washing the products at no hotter than 40 degrees and using a mild detergent and no fabric softener to prevent fading or additional shrinkage. Separate colored and white items to avoid color transfer when washing. In general, the following applies to all clothing: if there is no major soiling, then you should always wash at a maximum of 30 degrees in order to protect the product and the environment.
To preserve the quality of the product, we do not recommend tumble drying. Instead, remove the garment from the washing machine immediately after washing, shape it by hand, and let it air dry. This reduces creases and makes the garment easier to iron after drying.
If possible, set the iron to cotton. Lay the garment flat on the ironing board, inside out. Avoid applying strong pressure as this can result in a shiny finish, especially at the seams and neckline. A light steaming can help reduce wrinkles without overheating the material. Be sure to leave out what is printed!
Our LANA woolen jackets and woolen coats should not be cared for like synthetic products. As a natural product, wool has fundamentally self-cleaning properties and is very easy to care for. We recommend cleaning the jacket only when really necessary. Airing out the product on a hanger in the fresh air is often enough to get rid of odors.
Due to the leather details, it is recommended to consult a leather specialist for cleaning. Wool jackets should never be washed in your own washing machine or dried in a tumble dryer. Dry cleaning or bleaching is also strictly discouraged.
If necessary, to even out creases, the jacket can be ironed or steamed at a medium temperature. The leather details should definitely be left out.
Our cashmere products made from recycled cashmere require less washing than clothing made from other fibers because they are inherently more odor, stain and wrinkle resistant. Cashmere wool even absorbs odor molecules from sweat that are only released during washing. Cashmere garments should be washed on a gentle cycle or by hand (not hotter than 30 °C, low spin). A mild or neutral detergent is also recommended and the garment should be placed in a garment bag/laundry bag. Wash the item together with other delicate parts or separately, inside out and away from zippers, buttons, etc.
Cashmere garments are best dried flat. To do this, lay it over a towel or plain cloth on a drying rack or on a chair and gently knead it into shape by hand, removing as many wrinkles or creases as possible. To ensure the garments last a long time, tumble drying is strongly discouraged for all our cashmere and wool garments.
Although cashmere, like wool, is wrinkle-resistant, it may require a light ironing. If possible, set the iron to wool on medium or 2-zone heat. If the iron is too hot, it can cause discoloration or, in the worst case, burn marks on the garment. Also, avoid applying strong pressure when ironing, as this could result in a shiny surface.
