Take joy from your new Dévier studios garment, a lot of love and good intentions have gone into its creation.

 

Use a laundry bag 
When washing fine and thin materials such as silk, jerseys, viscose and wool, use a laundry bag to protect these delicate clothes. 

Lower the temperature 
You will save energy when you wash your clothes in cooler temperatures, by using the eco settings on the machine, and/or choosing shorter cycles. It is often enough to wash your clothes on 30°, if they are not very dirty. When you wash at lower temperatures, it is best to use a liquid detergent instead of powder, since it dissolves better.

Air dry your clothes and reduce the number of wash cycles
No need to wash your clothes every time you wear them, unless they’re noticeably dirty. By hanging a sweater or a pair of pants outside, or in your bathroom, where it is a bit humid, it should be enough to regain that fresh feeling.  

Fabric softeners
Try to avoid using fabric softeners, unless you are washing garments that are 100% synthetic, such as polyester, as this removes the static electricity in the garment. Also avoid dry cleaning unless the label states, “dry clean only”. Dry cleaning and fabric softeners have a greater negative impact on the environment, so only use them when they are necessary.

Machine drying vs. air drying 
Tumble dryers use a lot of energy. It is better for your clothes and for the environment to hang your clothes to dry.

Recycle or donate 
When you no longer use or like your clothes, swap them or donate them.

Repair or redesign
Value your clothes, consider repairing before replacing. Repairing is one way to extend the life of your clothes but you might also consider a redesign instead.

Recycled Cotton
Recycled cotton is made of re-used textile waste. It minimizes waste, saves energy and reduces pollution.
Cotton is the most used material for fabric, since it is very strong and budget-friendly. Cotton is a natural fiber that in its raw state is not naturally strong. To make it into a strong yarn, it needs to be twisted or spun. It can then, be woven into cotton cloth or knitted into cotton jersey. Cotton fabric is popular because it is easy to care for and comfortable year-round since cotton “breathes". Cotton is easy to clean; it can be machine-washed. 

Organic Cotton
Organic cotton is grown with less soil and water contamination.

Recycled polyester
Recycled polyester is made of re-used textile waste and other, such as PET plastic bottles. It reduces the use of oil, as a raw material, minimizes waste, saves energy and reduces pollution.
Polyester is a fine synthetic fiber that is thin and smooth, but at the same time very strong. Polyester is one of the most used materials for fabrics, and one of the most long lasting fabrics for clothes. It maintains the color well after wearing and washes, and it does not wrinkle as much as other fabrics. Clothes made of polyester can be machine-washed and do not shrink.

Mixed fibers
We are committed to leaving as little a trace as possible, so in the creation of a style with mixed fibers, we have used a recycled or organic blend material, chosen to reduce the environmental impact.
