At OA, we value sustainability and quality. Each of our prints have a story and we want each garment to live the longest life possible.
All fabrics are pre-washed before production. These are some steps we have picked up along the way that will make sure all your pieces stay beautiful and vibrant for longer.
Care labels from OA ORIGINALS COLLECTION are made of recycled polyester.
Wear More, Wash Less - It is better for both the clothes and the environment. Our garments do not need to be washed after every wear, and instead suggest airing or steaming between wears to keep your garments fresh. If you can, spot wash areas with marks over washing the whole garment.
Cold Water - Cold Water uses less energy and is better for the life of your garment as it’s more gentle and will reduce fade. We recommend using a cold, delicate cycle and washing garments alone on their first cycle. Be cautious not to leave your items wet in the washing machine post wash as this can cause dye run.
Hang Dry - Hang your items and avoid the dryer to hold the garments shape. It saves electricity and avoids fabric deterioration.
Steaming & Ironing - We recommend steaming your garments if you are able to as it is kinder to the fibres of your fabric. Alternatively, you can hang your items in the bathroom as you shower to let them naturally steam. If ironing, turn items inside out to not iron directly on the print, as this can cause colour fade.
Repair - We’re happy to look at any OA item that needs repair to see if it’s something we can fix. As each OA repair is assessed on a case-by-case basis, we will advise about the fee when evaluating your garment.
Please make sure your item is clean before handing it off to us or mailing it in or the item will be returned to you to wash.
