FAQS

WHERE ARE THE SHIRTS AND SHORTS MADE?

The prints are designed in London. The shirts are then printed and manufactured in Portugal, just outside the city of Porto.

WHAT MATERIAL ARE THE SHIRTS MADE FROM?

The shirts are 100% Viscose (also known as Rayon in the USA) The name derives from the way the natural fibres from wood pulp are then manufactured.

Viscose is a beautifully soft, silky yarn made by man from the fibres of natural, organic, fast-growing plants and trees. Invented in 1892 in France, three British scientists refined the manufacturing process in 1905 and patented ‘Rayon’. Known then as ‘artificial silk’, the fabric has a romantic history in fashion including some of the earliest ‘silk stockings’ and glamorous dresses of the 30s and 40s.

We use Viscose because of its myriad of qualities; it is durable, light, breathable
and super-soft.

WHAT MATERIAL ARE THE SHORTS MADE FROM?

Made from quick-drying recycled materials, our swim shorts are 40% Seaqual (made up of recycled marine plastics),and 60% recycled PES. Our short linings (mesh) are 50/50% of the same materials.



CAN I WASH THE SHIRT?

Like most high quality Viscose garments, our shirt labels clearly say ‘Dry Clean Only’.

 

CAN I IRON THE SHIRT?

Yes. If you have a smart iron, set it to a much cooler temperature. Otherwise, we suggest you use a covering cloth and always iron inside out. Ironing can actually help restore some shape if any washing (not recommended) has caused shrinkage.
