Once you’ve invested in a cotton item, keeping it looking its best is a must. To keep cotton shorts in good condition, proper cleaning and maintenance is key. We recommend always checking the individual care instructions before attempting to clean. Cotton is durable, soft and comfortable, but it does need to be cared for properly to ensure it doesn’t shrink. To care for your cotton pieces properly, we recommend pre-treating any stains by dampening the affected area with cold water and then applying a stain remover. As heat can often cause cotton to shrink, hand or machine washing at a temperature of 30°C or below is preferred. Cotton pieces can then be gently stretched to restore the original shape. Air dry cotton naturally. The brand offers a wide range of seasonal staples and future classics that belong in every wardrobe. Discover all the latest pieces that are available to buy now.
