Here are some additional tips on how to properly care for your garments and important properties explained of all materials used at Geisha:


Acrylic is a synthetic fabric that is often used as an alternative to wool.

Important properties of acrylic are:
  • Anti-crease
  • Durable
  • Resistant to sunlight

Acrylic should be washed according to the care symbols found on the garment labels. It is recommended to turn the fabric inside out and use fabric softener to reduce static electricity. Acryl can be washed most effectively on no more than 30 degrees. Always turn your clothing inside out before washing. Acryl cannot be tumble-dried. The best thing to do is to air dry your acrylic clothing.
Acrylic is a synthetic fabric that is often used as an alternative to wool. Acrylic does not crease and does not stretch out of shape. Acrylic can be washed in the washing machine or by hand. Use fabric softener to reduce static electricity.



Cotton is a natural fabric often used in tightfitting clothes due to its fine and soft fibers, making cotton incredibly comfortable against the skin.

Important properties of cotton are:
  • Durable
  • Strong
  • Minimal shrinkage

Cotton is relatively easy to handle as it can be washed accordingly at different temperatures (as instructed on the garment label). After washing, cotton can be put in the dryer as shrinkage is induced in the fabric to avoid such shrinkage after wet treatments. Another way of drying is hanging up the cotton garments on a drying rack. Cotton has poor elasticity which makes it prone to creasing, therefore can be ironed.


Linen is a plant-based textile made from the stalks of the flax plant.
The short fibers of linen are used for spinning coarse yarns, while the longest fibers are made into the finest linen yarns.

Important properties of linen:
  • Strong
  • Absorbent
  • Dries faster than cotton

Separate white, dark, and colored linens while washing. Linen should be turned inside out and washed on a gentle washing program for best results. Linen is safe to be tumble-dried on low heat to avoid shrinkage. Remove linen from the dryer while slightly damp and hang the fabric to dry. To maintain a flowy and relaxed look, do not iron linen. To maintain a crisp look, iron linen while reasonably damp.

Viscose, Modal, Lyocell

At Geisha, we primarily use viscose, modal, and lycocell that are all materials derived from the same semi-natural fiber named cellulose which is made from natural wood fibers. Cellulose fibers provide the feel of silk with their luxurious and soft feel.

Important qualities cellulose fabrics are:

  • Soft
  • Flowing material
  • Warm in summer, cool in winter
  • Anti-static

  • Soft
  • Breathable
  • Absorbs moisture easily
  • Retains its shape

  • Soft
  • Breathable
  • Absorbs moisture easily
  • Environmentally friendly

Garments made of cellulose can be washed inside out by hand with a detergent for delicate laundry. The garments should be washed without rubbing, twisting or wringing by gently pushing the excess water out of the garment. The clothes can also be washed inside out in the washing machine. A program for delicate laundry is recommended to be used and the clothes should be taken out of the washing machine immediately after the program ends. Viscose and modal should not go into the dryer, but can be ironed safely. During ironing, the fabric should be reasonably moist, as it has a chance to shrink. Do not put the iron on the highest setting, as the materials cannot withstand high heat. To prevent the fabric from shining, it is best to iron your garments inside out. Lycocell should not be ironed.




Wool is a natural fiber, highly moisture absorbent, making it excellent for insulation properties.

Important properties of wool are:
  • Elastic
  • Flexible
  • Does not wrinkle easily
  • Good ventilation

Wool should be washed properly by using the wool program setting. Sensitive fabrics should be hand-washed or dry-cleaned. Carefully lower the clothing into the water and squeeze the soap through the clothing. Rinse well with cold water. Follow up by removing the excess water placing the wool garment on a towel, rolling it up and pressing gently. Wovens are recommended to be hung out while knits should be laid flat.


Polyester is a synthetic fiber with low moisture absorption that hardly creases and retains its shape.

Important characteristics of polyester are:
  • Durable and sustainable
  • Moisture-resistant
  • Crease-free
  • Low maintenance 

Polyester can be washed in the washing machine according to the care symbols on the garment tags. It is better to hang the clothes to dry as polyester is relatively fast drying. Over time polyester may show signs of pilling, if that occurs you can cut off the pilling fibers.


Polyamide is a synthetic fiber that is used to refer to a variety of different fabrics that are made from strings of polyamide monomers such as nylon.

Important properties of polyamide is:
  • High wear resistance
  • High thermal stability
  • Strong
  • Good chemical resistance

Polyamide can be washed using bleach-free laundry detergent and a standard cold water washing cycle. The material can be hand-washed in cold water if a washing machine is not accessible. Dehydrate: Let the fabric air dry. Avoid using heat to dry the fabric since it will shrink.


Spandex is a synthetic fiber commonly used in stretchy wear due to its elastic nature.

Important properties of spandex are:
  • Lightweight
  • Not static
  • Resistant to body oils, lotions, detergents

Spandex can be washed with lukewarm water by hand or in the washing machine. Allow it to air dry or in the dryer at a low temperature. Spandex should not be ironed.
