HOW TO CARE FOR YOUR GARMENTS
Significant improvements in water testing has now shown that any synthetic fabric is likely to shed small microfibres (particles under 5mm) which in turn pollute our waterways.
Microfibre filters for washing machines are under development, but in the meantime we recommend that you use a Guppy Friend when washing any items made from polyester.
This ingenious and simple device catches 99% of any shedding from synthetic fabrics. You simply pop your clothes in the bag and then pop the bag in your washing machine.
It's not essential that you use a wash bag like Guppy Friend but we know many of you, like us, care deeply about our earth.
Otherwise you can wash your Pumayana garments on a normal to cold wash cycle. You can wash again and again and the colours will not fade and the clothing will remain like new – no sagging/stretching etc.
