Laundry products

We advise against using fabric softeners or conditioners, as they can impair the breathability and moisture absorbing qualities inherent in natural fibres. We also encourage you to consider using an environmentally friendly detergent and, should dry cleaning be required, to choose a 'green' dry cleaner.

Repairs and advice

We maintain a fabric archive. If your Frske garment is damaged, or you wish to test a stain removal treatment, just contact us via email . We’ll gladly send you a sample of the relevant fabric, free of charge.
