Garment Care

When you love something, you take care of it.

We want our designs to be iconic pieces that hold a place in your wardrobe for years to come - garments that you truly love.

To achieve this, we've captured the recommended washing and care instructions below.

 

Washing Instructions to Maximize Longevity of Encircled Designs

  1. Carefully undo the snaps or attachments (depending on design)
  2. Turn inside out
  3. Hand Wash in warm water, using a fragrance-free detergent (our designs may also be machine washed, on gentle cycle with like colours)
  4. Hang to dry (flat if possible, or gently draped over a door or garment rack)
 
**IMPORTANT!**
  • Do not wring the garment
  • Do not put in the dryer, do not iron, use bleach or dry clean.
  • Keep out of reach of children and pets.
  • Take off any jewelry before taking off or putting on your garment.
Additional Care Instructions

Modal naturally has anti-wrinkle properties but at times may get wrinkled.

When packing for travels, we recommend rolling the garment to minimize creases/wrinkles.

If wrinkles do appear, we recommend hanging and giving a light steam at a safe distance via a hand steamer (or hang in your washroom while showering!).

As the garment does have a small amount of Spandex in the blend, direct ironing is not recommended as it may scorch the fibers in the fabric. Using a light warm iron, with a towel or similar in between may at times be appropriate to remove light wrinkles. Do not leave the iron on the fabric for long periods of time and apply gentle pressure.

If you get a stain on the fabric, use a diluted solution of water and a gentle stain remover (such as Dawn, or your fabric detergent). Apply and dab, do not use a brushing motion as this may cause piling.

It is possible to put your Encircled designs in the washing machine. If you choose to do so, please use a lingerie/mesh bag, and put the machine on the gentle cycle. Do not use the dryer. Ever!

About the Chrysalis Cardi + Evolve Top Snaps

The true secret to our Chrysalis Cardi and Evolve Top's versatility is metal snaps, hidden along the hemline or in the sleeve. Each metal snap is hand-sewn on in Canada. 

  • To do up the snaps, simply press the snaps together.
  • To undo the snaps, use your fingernail to split apart the snap. Do NOT pull the fabric to split apart the snaps, this will cause the stitching to rip. If you lose a snap, let us know immediately! We can send you a new one.
