Garment Care

Care and consideration are at the heart of what we do. We are committed to creating pieces with the entire life cycle in mind with the goal of eventually closing the loop. It begins in our studio with the fabrications we choose, the manufacturers we work with and how we envision our garments performing when we hand the care over to you.

Here are our recommendations on how to extend the life of your Coreprêt pieces.

Fabric Care
Appropriately caring for your garment is an important step towards reducing our impact upon the environment. Each garment may vary, requiring different levels of care, but as a general rule, we recommend always using cold water temperatures and avoid tumble drying where possible.

Hemp/Silk
Due to the nature of this fabrication we recommend gentle machine wash on cold or hand wash. It is dry-cleanable, but please seek eco-friendly providers where possible such as Laundry Box, a Melbourne based, chemical free dry cleaner. Do not bleach and avoid harsh chemicals. Line dry in shade and low iron on reverse.

Organic Cotton Jersey
Due to the delicate nature of our jersey, please ensure if machine washing that you use a delicates bag. We recommend a delicate wash cycle or hand wash on cold, do not bleach and avoid harsh chemicals. To maintain shape, dry flat in shade and medium iron on reverse.

Vintage Fabrics
As our collection grows, so will our fabric care. Please note for any exclusive artisanal fabric we recommend dry clean only or consult with us personally on caring instructions.

Mend
We encourage you to mend small damages before considering a replacement. It can be a meditative practice or a chance to learn a new skill, however we do welcome any garment back into the studio if the repairs are out of your skillset. When you buy with Coreprêt, we offer a complimentary repair program for the life of your garment. Email us at info@corepret.com for an assessment of the damage and helpful hints.

Note: This service excludes tailoring and alterations. Coreprêt reserves the right to determine the extent of the damage. Anything above minor damage will not be repaired. We repair by hand, so a return timeframe will be provided upon visual assessment.

Take Back Scheme
When designing your garment, we’ve taken extra interest in the circularity of the product. If you have any pieces you no longer want, please send your Coreprêt garment back to us and we will continue its useful life by either; deconstructing and harvesting parts for new product, repair and resale, or use it as helpful feedback on performance to fuel further research. Please email info@corepret.com to kick-start this process.
