WASHING & CARE

How do I take care of my Tajinebanane piece?

MY ARTICLE
CONTAINS COTTON
OR COTTON + ELASTANE

TIP N°1

• Washing? Machine wash inside out at 30 degrees, zips closed 
• Spin? Soft 
• Tumble Dryer? Forbidden
• Ironing? Softly and inside out.

Tip that can really make a difference:
On your slightly damp garment, with your iron (steam or steamer), iron on the reverse side, slightly stretching the body and the sleeves with an up and down movement to give it back all its beauty.

TIP N°2

The fabric is characterized by its technical weaving with spaced out, interwoven threads which makes it a very airy fabric. 
As a result, the material may shrink during washing, but don't worry, it will return to its original shape when ironed, which is recommended to be gentle and inside out.

CONTAINS WOOL

(except for the sherpa)

TIP N°1

Machine washable: 

• Washing? Cold, inside out on the wool or delicate program (depending on the machine) and in a pillowcase or a washing net, zipped up. 
• Softener strongly discouraged. Why? Excessive sudsing and thermal shocks cause the fabric to felt
• Spin? Very soft
• Tumble Dryer? Forbidden 
• Drying? Flat on a clothesline.

TIP N°2

Hand wash: 

• Soak your knitwear in a little cold water with detergent (not too long), don't use fabric softener, don't rub it and don't wring it out when you spin it.
• Pre-dry your sweater or cardigan by rolling it in a dry terry cloth towel (repeat the operation if the piece is very thick) 
• Dry flat on the clothesline, and store folded rather than hanging on a hanger to avoid distorting the knitwear.

DID YOU KNOW?


Wool is "self-regenerating" and therefore has a self-cleaning power thanks to being in contact with oxygen. 
It is advisable to air out your wool sweaters regularly.

CONTAINS A LITTLE ACCESSORY

Buttons, cordons, zips, snap buttons...

TIP N°1

As you know, our goal is to make clothes for breastfeeding anywhere, anytime. This includes technical details in the designs such as zips or snap buttons to facilitate access to the breast but also aesthetic details such as buttonholes or cords.

We would like to remind you here that all of these finishes (cords, zips, snaps...) are entirely reserved for you and are in no way chewable toys for your baby.

Your Tajinebanane items will often be worn more often than other items in your wardrobe (Open Bar, all day long!). Therefore, it is even more important to follow the washing instructions to maintain the quality of the products, as long as possible.

TIP N°2

You should know that the safety and durability of our products is one of our main concerns, which is why all of our product accessories comply with REACH regulations.
All of our products have been tested by an independent expert laboratory Intertek, recognized worldwide and in accordance with standardized regulations: ASTM D4846, ISO 12945-1 et EN16732

Tests carried out and approved:
• Zips are resistant to more than 1000 closures and openings: result very satisfactory
• Pressure pull over 30 Newton: result very satisfactory
