We design quality items that we hope will be a permanent fixture in your wardrobe. For this reason we strived long and hard to find great materials that hold colour and last longer. However, like most fabrics, if they are mistreated their lifespan will be shortened. There are instructions on the garment-care label describing how to best look after your garment. Below are some extended explanations on caring for your garment along with some other useful information.
For your convenience, all garments (apart from blazers and jackets) are machine washable. We recommend that they be washed on a low heat, preferably 30 degrees. It is best to wash only when really needed as most garments don’t need washing after every wear. Not only will this help to prolong the life of the garment, it will also help to minimise the environmental impact and save our natural resources.
Tumble-drying is extremely bad for your clothes. Moreover it is also extremely bad for the environment. All our garments are nearly, if not all 100% natural fibres and therefore need to be treated with respect. We recommend that, once you have washed your garment, you remove it from the washing machine as soon as possible and hang it to dry.
Here at Hill we like nothing more than when a garment is crisply pressed. For best results, we recommend that you start by turning the garment inside out and press with a steam iron. To achieve the crease in the front and back, please turn the garment back to right side facing out and place a thin cloth on the garment at the place you want to press. This will prevent any sheen affect that happens when pressing natural fibres.
Correctly storing your garment is equally as important as washing and drying is. After pressing your garment it should be hung in a cool dry place to prevent creasing and maintain freshness.
