Origin of products

Our products are manufactured by skilled specialists in the North of Italy or in their European laboratories with the finest quality standards and in full compliance with the regulations regarding labour, safety and environmental friendliness. Almost all of our products are made exclusively by using Italian fabrics and finishes, and when that is not possible, in some cases, we use materials which have both traceable origins and processing cycles.
DO THE MATERIALS, FABRICS AND PROCESSING CYCLES USED, RESPECT ECO-FRIENDLY PRINCIPLES?
We love to offer our consumers transparency and honesty to allow an ethical purchase. This commitment is also proven because we use materials and processes with “Oeko -Tex® certification – Fiducia nel tessile Standard 100″, the international brand that ensures responsible production of textile products from raw materials to the products sold. Furthermore, the products in merino wool and mixed wool are strictly made with certified fabric and yarn “NMM” (Non-Mulesing-Merino) that certify the absence of Mulesing procedures on sheep.

The washing instructions are on the label sewn inside each item and on the page of each product on this website. Please always follow these instructions scrupulously together with the following additional useful information for the correct care of your clothes.
General Care and Maintenance
Before washing the product, close the front zip completely, as well as pockets and openings, limpets and velcro straps or other similar materials.
We suggest you to wash your sports products separately from other kind of clothes.
Wash dark, light and bright colors separately.
Wash it in a washing machine at the temperature recommended on the inner label on the normal cycle, avoiding a hot wash that could damage the fabric.
Never use washing powder, or products containing softeners or bleach because these products under any circumstances compromise the softness of the fabric.
Never iron the products and do not leave prints or labels near heat sources.
Do not dry clean. Do not tumble dry.
Instructions and Care of Merino Wool and Mixed Products
For all products in merino wool or mixed wool use normal detergents. You don’t need to use detergents specific for wool. The structure of Merino wool and Merino – polyester blended fabrics are different from those of normal wool. The detergents commonly marketed are designed specifically for classical woollen clothes and often contain softeners that can damage the fibres causing a deterioration of the fabric.
The fabrics in merino wool and mixed wool have some excellent elastic properties. For this reason we suggest that during drying, never hang products made in these tissues, since the weight of the water would stretch them thus causing the product to lose its characteristics and its original size. We suggest to lay the product in a horizontal position to dry.
