At House of Baukjen we make clothes to be worn and loved for a lifetime! From our use of premium eco-friendly fabrics to our production values, we take every care to ensure the sustainability of your garments. As a family-run business, leaving a positive legacy behind is important to us. Considering the whole lifespan of our clothing is part of this legacy, so we’d like to share how best to care for your garments.
A large part of the environmental footprint of clothes happens after you’ve bought them, as a direct result of all the washing and drying. The great news is that taking good care of clothing significantly lowers the impact of your laundry. Additionally, for each year you continue wearing an item (instead of replacing it), you’ll reduce its total carbon footprint by 24%.
We hope these tips will help you confidently care for your clothes, and if you have any questions our team will be happy to hear from you.
