We get a lot of questions from our customers on how to take care of our fabrics - consider this our guide!
First things first - you’ve made an amazing choice by choosing plant based fibers over synthetic materials. Plant based fabrics are derived from nature and our signature TENCEL™ is sourced from LENZING, the worldwide leader in sustainable natural fibers.
Our TENCEL™ feels like silk but is entirely vegan and free of animal products. This material is lightweight and breathable, meaning it won’t absorb odors. Unless you spill something, this fabric requires very minimal maintenance. We encourage you to use a steamer to loosen up the wrinkles incurred from packing and shipping.
The first time you wear your Neu Nomads piece, we suggest you can hang in the shower, use a handheld steamer or use a ‘fluff’ cycle in the dryer.
When it comes to cleaning your garment we suggest using a steamer to freshen up - because our fabrics are breathable and won’t absorb odors you won’t need to “clean” them like other items in your wardrobe. This is true for every piece from Neu Nomads, whether you’ve chosen from our sustainable coats and jackets for women or you’re cleaning one of our easy basics.
Small changes can make a big difference in how your laundry routine affects your health and the environment.
If you are in New York, CELSIOUS is our favorite eco-friendly laundromat. Aside from the water-conscious Electrolux washers that text patrons when their clothes are ready, the German-American sisters, Corinna and Theresa Williams, offer chemical-free complimentary detergent and a full selection of eco-friendly garment care products and accessories that you can add to your load. They have suspended the self-service laundry for as long as social distancing guidelines are in place, but they are open 6 days/week for you to drop off and pick up throughout the day.
You heard it here first: Soft suiting is having a moment. Gone are the days when the suit was just for the man about town. Now, suits are bringing back their curves with feminine shapes, delicate fabrics, and a whole color palette of wonderful shades. In linen or silky TENCEL™, we’re wearing a soft suit everywhere we go, and so should you.
The dappled sun, the shade of unique colonial architecture, the sticky sweet smell of cañoncitos hawked by street vendors, and the cool taste of Argentinian wine. This fall, we’re launching our neu-est collection in the fabulous Buenos Aires, where the streets are filled with infinitely stylish porteños enjoying the most incredible atmosphere in Latin America.
