Oriya's trademark is jersey. This fabric is appreciated for its elasticity, comfort and softness.
It is recommended to be washed at 40°C in a delicate cycle, as it is a fine and very fluid fabric. You should therefore be careful not to wash jersey with clothes that have zippers or accessories with which it can snag. It is equally preferable to wash it in the machine with other fabrics so that the fabric does not get damaged in the washing drum. Ironing is possible in "silk" mode, but it is preferable to dry them in the open air rather than in the dryer.
Below are the care instructions for jersey fabric:
Wash at 40°C, low mechanical action
Do not bleach
Do not dry clean
Do not tumble dry
Here are some tips to care for this material:
· Choosing carefully when to hand wash
Hand washing is recommended for our designs made of delicate fabrics (tulle, fishnet) or with « appliqué » (guipure/lace). Hand washing for these designs should be done without aggressive rubbing and with minimal machine washing.
For standard designs, hand washing is not recommended because, contrary to what we might think, hand washing can damage the fibres. Indeed, we tend to rub and squeeze much harder when washing by hand, which has the effect of damaging the textiles’ fibres.
By washing them in the machine with the wool program, they will be stirred gently and the spinning will avoid the rubbing effect and consequently, the formation of fabric pilling. In addition, washing machine allows the detergent and water to be well mixed. The homogeneous mixture in the washing machine facilitates the rinsing thus avoiding the unpleasant white deposits on the linen when we hand wash.
· Getting the dosage right
The appropriate dosage of detergent is essential. Not only does the right dosage ensure that your clothes are washed properly, but it also prevents detergent residue from being deposited on your clothes. Contrary to popular belief, textiles are not better washed and, an overdose of detergent can, in contrast, leave white marks on your clothes. In addition, detergent residues, whether in powder or liquid form, can cause skin irritations and allergies.
· Washing inside out
Remember to turn your clothes inside out to avoid any risk of friction between the fibres of the fabrics, which could damage their colours. Washing the garment inside out avoids snagging on the drum when the garment has embossed details.
· Protective net
For better protection, place your garment in a protective net. This will protect the garment from friction and possible snagging with other garments.
· Dry the garment quickly
Once the machine is done, do not leave the garment to soak in the bottom of the tank. Lay it out immediately on a clothesline and avoid using pegs directly on the garment to avoid unpleasant peg marks.
