Fabric and garment care

When you purchase Es Una, you are buying a garment made from 100% recycled fibres - fishing nets actually! They have been woven into the most luxurious feeling fabric that washes very well and dries quickly. Follow the washing directions so that your investment in Es Una lasts longer.
Take care to read these washing instructions. Like any swimwear garment (rashie, rash vest, rash guard, swim dress or bathers), the more careful you are with washing, the longer it will last. Your goal is to retain the fabric's original quality for as long as possible. This will depend on the type of fabric, chemicals that it is exposed to and how you wash and dry it.
Here are our recommendations to retain shape and protect your fabric for longer, and check your garment label for instructions too. 

Fabric care

Rinse away the salt, sunscreen, deodorant, cosmetics, perfume, sweat or chlorine as soon as you can. Chemicals can damage elasticity, stain or discolour the fabric. 
Cold hand wash or gentle machine wash with mild detergent. White vinegar can be used as a substitute. Wash light and dark colours separately. Use a laundry bag to prevent catching the fabric and retain shape. Rough surfaces should also be avoided.
Remove excess water and line dry out of direct sunlight. Do not wring, soak, bleach, tumble dry, dry clean, iron or store wet. 

Although the best possible dyes are selected worldwide, the fastness of some shades must be treated with caution. 

Apply sunscreen and let dry before dressing.

Es Una fabric

Each garment is individually created with two-way stretch fabric that is thicker than the average swimsuit fabric. It is soft to touch and fade resistant. When wet, it won’t hug your body, and when dry, it retains its natural, flowing shape.
Our fabric is rated UPF50+ (to protect your skin from the sun's harsh rays) and is made from 100% recycled fibres, made from fishing nets. Our custom prints are printed right here in Australia.

Look after your garment and it will look after you.
