VISCOSE

VISCOSE

You can think of viscose as silk made from trees, and like silk, it needs to be treated gently to stay beautiful for a long time.

CARE

  • As always, please consult the care label on your product, as it may contain specific guidance due to colour, print, construction and/or end-use.
  • Consider if your garment requires washing or if airing it out is enough to make it fresh again.
  • Standard machine wash cycle is not advised due to intense twisting, which can damage clothing. For some viscose garments, dry cleaning is the only option! If the care label indicates so, please take it to a professional cleaner.
  • Viscose is best washed using the hand wash cycle or wool programme of your washing machine. Even 30° Celsius is sometimes too hot for viscose, so in general we recommend to wash in cold water and to select a low speed cycle (up to 600 rpm).
  • Handwashing is usually suitable for simple viscose garments. However, we recommend using the handwash cycle of your machine (see above), because of the risk to damage your garment during manual handwash. If you choose to hand wash, we recommend a low temperature, a mild detergent and very gentle movements. Be careful not to rub the garment intensely while washing.
  • Our top tip for viscose? After washing, place your garment on a thick towel and allow it to absorb the water. This process gets rid of excess water without having to wring out your clothing.
  • Always allow your viscose products to air dry. This is better for the environment and also prevents any shrinking and/or tears.
  • Iron your viscose garments turned inside out on a low temperature. Be careful not to press the seams as this may leave marks. You can also carefully steam the garment on a low level.
  • In general, be aware that viscose shrinks and wrinkles easily during washing and may feel a bit stiff afterwards. However, carefully ironing or steaming your garment will expand and soften the material again.



CHARACTERISTICS

  • Fine
  • Soft
  • Skin-friendly
  • High dry strength
  • Elastic



ORIGIN

Viscose is a semi-synthetic fabric, made from natural raw materials such as wood which is then transformed into cellulosic fibres via a spinning process that uses chemicals. The key to ensuring viscose production is not harmful to the environment lies in the origin of the raw materials and the management of the production process. We are committed to only source viscose from responsible producers, and we work tirelessly on this with our suppliers and not-for-profit forest protection organisation Canopy as part of the CanopyStyle initiative.
