Care for your clothes.


Ever wonder how to care for the ethically made + Sustainable clothing you've proudly purchased?

Here's our tricks of the trade to keep crisp linen crisp + silky threads soft.

GENERAL CLOTHING CARE TIPS

We don't believe in disposable clothing. Take care of your clothes, and they'll last you a lifetime. First we'll start with at-home washing. We find that we generally care for our garments from the comfort of our homes. If your piece requires a delicate wash, try rinsing it out in your sink in cool water with a light detergent. Rinse twice, and lightly ring excess water. Use drying rack or dry flat over a towel to avoid misshapen necklines.

(These tips are meant as general knowledge for various fabrics.
Each item in Jean Jones Collection will include specific care instructions.
