We hope that these care instructions will help you take the best care of your beloved Uhana gems, making them last for years to come. If you have any doubts in taking care of your product, don’t hesitate to contact us at store@uhanadesign.com.

Choose a gentle detergent without bleach and enzymes for wool, silk and other delicate wash requiring materials. Clothes with silk, lyocell or wool should not be soaked in water for too long. Follow the given care instructions and wash temperatures.
Before washing we recommend closing the zippers and buttons, tying the laces and checking that pockets are empty.
Clothes with natural fibres should be dried inside, protected from sunlight that may fade the colors.

 

Merinowool | Wool naturally resists dirt and bacterias and therefore it’s usually enough to just air out the clothing. When airing out doesn’t help, clothes with wool should be washed gently in 30 degrees with mild soap or detergent. For drying, gently squeeze out the excess water and lay the clothing at to dry.
Being a soft material, wool has characteristics to pilling, which means the formation of fuzzy balls on the surface of wool clothing. Pilling can be easily removed by hand or with fabric comb or a battery operated pill and fuzz remover. Wool clothes are recommended to be stored folded and protected from wool-hungry insects and moths.

Silk | This luxuriously soft and breathable material is cool in the summer and warm in the winter due to its heat transfer abilities. If the garment doesn’t have any stains or odour, it’s usually enough to just air it out. However, if the clothing is worn often, it should be washed regularly. We recommend machine washing with hand wash setting or a very delicate hand wash. Dry clothes hanging and iron while still damp, preferably with a garment steamer or with an iron using low heat setting.

Triacetate mixtures | Triacetate (Soalon™) combines natural pulp with flexible material properties. Our fabrics are a mixture of triacetate and polyester and they are made in Japan. The material is characterised by a luster and touch that resembles silk. It doesn’t wrinkle and it’s easy to take care of. For Sleek-products we recommend delicate wash in 40 degrees and low heat ironing. For other triacetate products we recommend delicate wash in 30 degrees and ironing at low heat.

Cotton and cotton mixtures | For sweatshirts, we recommend washing inside out in 30 degrees (shrinkage max. 5%) and shaping when damp. Iron cotton products with a maximum of two points and preferably on the wrong side. Choose a liquid detergent for coloured laundry. For cotton-polyamide blends (Devoré) we recommend machine washing with a hand wash program. Iron with one dot. For 100% cotton products we recommend wash in 60 degrees (shrinkage max. 6%) and ironing with three points.

Lyocell, Tencel™ | A material made responsibly from wood pulp, is a gentle choice for you and the environment. Lyocell is silky soft, durable and easy to care of. A material that warms you in the winter, cools you in the summer. We recommend washing Tencel products with 40 degree and Lyocell products with 30 degree delicate wash inside out. Favour airing outdoors, avoiding direct sunlight to keep the colours from fading. Ironing from the wrong side with one point.

Cupro | As a material, cupro is silky soft and has little electrification. We recommend washing products with 30 degree delicate wash inside out (shrinkage margin 5%). We primarily recommend airing outdoors, avoiding direct sunlight to keep the colours from fading. Ironing from the wrong side with one point.

Recycled wool | Wool naturally resists dirt and bacterias and therefore it’s usually enough to just air out the clothing. You can also care for woollen coats with a coat brush, which cleans the fibers and restores the surface from signs of use. With the coat brush you can also remove small stains. If necessary, take the product to the laundry to be cleaned gently and lovingly by professionals. Do not wash with water.

Mohair blends | Mohair fibre wears out easily and is not recommended to be washed frequently. At first, try remove stains using marseille or gall soap. When in need of a full wash, use washing program meant for woollen items and let dry at. Go easy on the knit when using sweater stone and mohair comb.

Sterling silver and jewelry metals | It is natural for silver and other jewelry metals to darken over time. You can reduce this by storing the jewelry in its own packaging or, for example, in a Minigrip bag, separate from other jewelry. You can brighten up and treat the silver and metal parts with cleaning cloths or liquids specially developed for silver jewelry.

Birch plywood, silk stones, ceramics, glass | We create jewelry combining metals with a selection of special materials produced in Finland. They need gentle care to last long. Store the jewelry in its own packaging or otherwise protected from dirt, moisture and wear. Avoid having the jewelry in contact with cosmetics or other chemicals. If dirt and grease have accumulated to the materials over time, hard surfaces can be cleaned by wiping gently with a damp cloth or an eraser. For more demanding stains, clean by hand with water and mild soap, avoiding hard rubbing.
