Textile Guide and Care Instructions

Silk Noil

Fig 1. Bias Camisole in Sand


Often called "raw silk," Silk Noil has a nubby feel and matte surface resembling cotton in its texture. Noil is a breathable and versatile fabric, great for all seasons and multi-destination travel. Silk Noil is yielded from the silk waste of the spun processes, causing unique fiber variation. Subtle variations in color and texture are inherent to the natural beauty of our Silk Noil fabric. Silk is a natural, durable, yet biodegradable material that has a very low environmental impact.

Care: To best keep your silk noil in its original condition, we recommend eco dry cleaning. However, silk noil is also the most washable silk! Washed raw silk has a soft, lived-in texture. If you choose this method, you may experience a 2-5% shrinkage the first time you wash your silk. Hand wash in cold water; do not machine wash or wring. Use a gentle detergent without bleach, peroxide, or citrus, since harsh additives can break down the silk fibers. Hang dry or lay flat to dry. Please note that darker colors may bleed or fade more quickly with washing. Dark colors can also fade or streak if washed, so dry clean in order to retain richer colors. Low iron or steam if needed. 

Silk Noil Jersey

The most recent addition to our Silk Noil collection, our signature Silk Noil Jersey has a vintage aesthetic and nubby feel similar to its woven cousin. It travels just as well too and can be your favorite Summer staple and your favorite cold weather base layer all at once.

Care: Hand wash or use a gentle machine wash cycle in cold water. Do not wring. Be sure to use a gentle detergent without bleach, peroxide, or citrus, since harsh additives can break down the silk fibers. Hang dry indoors or low tumble. Please note that this fabric is locally dyed, so we recommend that you wash dark colors separately before wear. Darker colors will naturally fade more quickly with washing. Dark colors can also fade or streak if washed, so dry clean to retain richer colors. Low iron or steam if needed.

Care: Dry Clean or hand wash in cold water. Hang dry or dry flat. Use a gentle detergent to protect the fibers. Do not bleach.

Biodegradable and easily grown, Linen is a highly sustainable material that doesn't use pesticides or fertilizers and requires little water in the growth process. It is strong, naturally moth-resistant, and made from flax plant fibers, and when untreated (not dyed), it is fully biodegradable and Earth's best friend. Its natural colors include ivory, ecru, tan and grey. All dyes are GOTS Certified, meeting worldwide textile standards for low impact processing, including ecological, social, and environmental requirements. 

Care: Hand wash or gentle machine wash in lukewarm or cold water using a gentle detergent such as Ecover.  We recommend not using bleach or other harsh additives which can shorten the life of natural fibers. Tumble dry low or line dry. Linen becomes more pliable and absorbent after each wash. 

Anaise Slip Dress in Rosehip

Cupro resembles silk because it’s made from the silky fibers that stick to cotton seeds during the production process. Usually it’s tossed out, but some brilliant soul figured out how to make it useful. The result is a silky-smooth, durable fabric that breathes like cotton and feels like silk on your skin. Often used as a silk substitute, Cupro is noted for its ability to create gorgeous draping. A European relative of Tencel, Cupro is resistant to stretching out of shape at higher temperatures. And conveniently, it’s machine washable and dryable!

So why is this material so ecologically fabulous? Besides being a recycled by-product in the cotton production process, it absorbs dyes easily, requiring less dye. It’s also hypoallergenic, anti-static, and stretch-resistant. Cupro is also often blended with other eco-textiles and is also fully biodegradable.

Care: Machine wash on gentle cycle in cold water. Use a gentle detergent to protect the fibers. Do not bleach. Line dry. Low iron or gently steam, being careful to avoid water spotting.


  The Marta Dress in Ticking Stripe

OZMA’s Organic Cotton and Hemp Chambray is a blend of 55% Organic Cotton and 45% Hemp. Our unique blend gives this fabric the elevated character we strive for. A perfect hue of flecked denim that softens with age & wear, the weave celebrates imperfections, making each piece definitively individual.

Organic Cotton’s growing process lessens the impact on our environment because it is grown using natural, untreated, GMO free seeds, clear of synthetic pesticides and fertilizers.

Growing and processing Organic Cotton is extremely gentle. It replenishes and maintains soil fertility, reduces soil toxicity, builds biologically diverse agriculture, and uses far less water too. It is harvested using winter’s natural freezing temperatures, and uses nontoxic cornstarch in the production process. This fabric is gentle on the earth while providing long-lasting comfort.

Hemp is a highly sustainable material that also avoids harmful pesticides or fertilizers in the growing process. Because it requires little water, it’s more gentle on our environment. As one of the most replenishing materials in agriculture today, it returns 60-70% of the nutrients it takes from the soil. 100% Hemp in a Summer cloth weave is ideal for humid weather. It is highly absorbent, lightweight, and breathable, making it perfect for intense summer heats.

Care: Dry clean or machine wash on delicate cycle with cold water with like colors. Use a mild detergent to protect the fibers. Do not bleach. Tumble low dry or line dry. Our Chambray's hand softens and its character deepens with each wear and wash.
