Extending the life of our clothes is one of the best things we can do for our planet.

Choosing clothes made with superior quality materials and good construction in the first place will make the garment last longer. 


Follow these tips to keep your éclipse for years!

Sometimes rinsing the armpit area is all that's needed. Wear your garments at least three times before laundering. Our quick-dry fabric can dry in a matter of hours for your next day of adventure. 

2. Wash at low temps.

This helps the fabric last longer. éclipse fabric care instructions are machine wash warm, as in tepid, so little to no heat is needed. 

3. Hang dry.

Line-dry is best for any fabric and the environment. Air drying increases fabric longevity. éclipse fabric is quick to dry. Tumble dry is fine too.

5. Mend

If a seam starts to unravel, a drop of clear nail polish seals it in a snap. In case of a tear, turn the garment inside out and a basic stitch easily takes care of closing it up. No-sew tape works well on Polyester as well.
