CARING FOR GARMENTS
At Emblazer our aim is to make you enjoy wearing our clothes for a long time to come.
With that in mind, we use fabrics from other collections leftovers from prestigious portuguese suppliers.
Well known around the world for their high quality and transparent production process, located in the north of Portugal.
These kind of fabrics, known as dead stock, have the important role in determining the first step of our creative process, when we are designing our next collection.
Also, our labels and buttons are recycled or made of natural materials.
And last but not least, we send your orders inside a cotton bag instead of a paper bag, inside the card box. So you can re-use it and spread our concept wherever you want to.
Besides the quality of the chosen garments, we give you some tips on how to care for them, so they can last more time in your life.
By following these simple tips, you can reduce the amount of energy consumed in taking care of your clothes.
As we refer in our labels and washing conditions, regarding to the structure and the need of quality maintenance of our fabrics: DRY CLEAN ONLY all the pieces of clothing that you buy from Emblazer at www.emblazerstore.com.
1. Hang your clothes outside to freshen them up!
Clothes washing is a process that gradually wears away your garments while consuming water and energy. Sometimes you just need to hang them outside and brush them off to get them fresh again.
2. Prevent your clothes from warping!
Hang your Emblazer clothes in the wardrobe to maintain the original shape and elasticity.
3. Choose a sustainable professional to wash your clothes!
Look for cleaners with dry cleaning systems that use technologies that are more respectful for the environment.
