COTTON

Cotton is a durable and antistatic natural fiber that is easy to care. Cotton absorbs moisture efficiently, it does not sweat, and it feels comfortable on the skin. It complements BYPIAS’s bohemian style perfectly.

BOHEMIANA TRICOTS

Printed tricot is made of 95% combed cotton, 5% elastane. Elastane is used to improve the comfort of the knitwear and to help the garment retain its shape.

  • Wash at 30 °C with clothes of the same shade. By turning the garment outside in, you protect the print. Spin at a low speed, 400 rpm at max.
  • Use a liquid detergent free of bleaching agents. To remove stains, we recommend using bile soap. Do not use a softener to avoid debilitating elastane.
  • Straighten and shape the garment back to the proper dimensions at a moist state and dry it flat or hanging. Do not use a tumbler dryer to avoid damaging the print.
  • Printed knitwear is bohemian style, so it doesn't need ironing. However, if you want to iron, carry it out on the inside of the garment to protect the print and use the temperature recommended for cotton.

GARMENTS WITH WOVEN COTTON

A garment that is product-washed can be taken to use immediately. A garment that is not washed as a finished product, must be washed before the use to get rid of excess coloring.

Instead of repeatedly washing, freshen the garment and let it hang in the fresh air after use. Remove stains immediately.

BYPIAS BAMBOOS

BYPIAS bamboo fabric is made of 93% bamboo viscose, 7% elastane.

Bamboo has wonderful feel and functionality. It is soft and breathable and it feels comfortable on the skin. The silky bamboo balances heat, so it feels cool in warm and warm in cool conditions. The intricate shine and glowing deep colors of the bamboo fabric are due to the round shape and smooth surface of the bamboo fiber. Thanks to its smoothness, bamboo product is suitable also for the most sensitive skin.

VISCOSE

LINEN

Linen is a strong and durable fiber that absorbs moisture efficiently. Thanks to the high thermal conductivity, linen is a breathable material that feels cool on a warm skin and warm in cool conditions. It is very resistant to UV radiation and does not build up static charge. Flax is shiny and smooth on the surface of the fiber, so while linen is superb in look and comfortable in use, it is also a practical textile material. Linen is antibacterial, so it does not irritate even the most sensitive skin.

Linen dries quickly and effectively repels dirt, so keeping it clean is easy. When you care and wash your linen garment properly, it improves after every use and it lasts from generation to generation.

To keep your linen garment in the best possible condition, store it hanging on a hanger. Do not store your linen items folded over a long period of time to avoid flax fibers breaking along the folding lines.

The unevenness as well as the binding knots of the linen yarn give linen textile a natural and free look, so the binding knots of the yarns are not intended to be cut with scissors.
