Taking good care of your peony pieces will extend their life, conserve natural resources and minimise the chance of your garment ending up in a textile landfill.

Peony pieces are created with the intent to be a part of your wardrobe for years to come. To ensure their longevity, we encourage thoughtful practices when caring for your pieces. Taking care of your garments will extend their life and minimise your environmental footprint. We recommend a cool hand wash with mild natural soap followed by line drying or drying flat in the shade. Avoid machine washing, tumble drying, hot water and harsh chemical detergents. As a general rule, limit washing until completely necessary. All synthetic fibres, recycled or otherwise, release tiny particles called microplastics into the waterways when washed. To minimise this, we recommend washing your swimwear in a Guppyfriend Washing Bag.

There is nothing sweeter than a vintage peony piece, so think twice before you let it go. If a button comes loose, or your dress shows signs of wear, we encourage you to repair it or repurpose it into something new. Tackle minor repairs yourself at home or source a seamstress. You can breathe new life into old pieces by getting creative with DIY - shortening the hem of your favourite dress will give it a new feel and turning an old floral blouse into a scarf gives it a new life.

When you are ready to let go of your peony garment, consider hosting a clothing swap party with friends and family, have a garage sale or donate the item to support those in need in your local community.

To help increase the longevity of our garments we have implemented a take-back program. If you have a piece at the end of its life, you are welcome to send it back to us for responsible reuse or recycling. To do so, please email us at firstname.lastname@example.org. Please note, due to hygiene regulations, this program only applies to our resortwear pieces.
