Cotton Care Guide

Cotton is a versatile, comfortable and breathable fabric and is easy to look after. At TOAST, we love cotton for its ability to take dye and retain bright colours and intricate prints.

Obtained from the fibres surrounding the soft seed pods of the cotton plant, cotton is a natural and biodegradable fibre that has been used since antiquity. The fibres are cleaned and spun into threads before being made into a variety of fabrics, from denim and corduroy to poplin and twills.

How to wash

Cotton can be washed at 30 degrees in the machine with similar colours. Try to wash your cotton less frequently to maintain the shape, colour, and quality of your garment.

How to dry & store

Reshape your garment whilst damp by holding the side seams together and shaking. Cotton is best dried flat or hanging to prevent the need for ironing. If an item requires ironing, then it is best to do so whilst slightly damp or using the steam setting.

Hang your cotton clothes away from direct sunlight to prevent fading.

The History of Corduroy

Corduroy chimes perfectly with the conker-brown and mustard shades, deep-lapel collars and wide, high-waisted trousers of the 1970s. During the decade, it was buoyed by the sartorial choices of Jane Birkin and Brigitte Bardot (who between them could render anything iconic).

Today, corduroy is a celebration of quirky glamour. It is practical without being drab; plush without being flashy. 1970s intellectuals doubtless appreciated corduroy for its durability as well as its looks. What they would also have known and what has been almost forgotten since is that its status as anti-establishment badge of cool was no accident. In fact, for much of the 19th century, corduroy was a symbol both of working-class identity and political radicalism.
