Wash & Wear Care
Wash & Wear Care
We’ve put together tips & tricks to keep your Wolvens looking new and lasting as long as possible — all while decreasing their environmental impact when washing.
Let’s talk about microfibers. Did you know that microfibers originate from fabrics we all know and love? These tiny fibers are a huge problem that we are all trying to find an eco-friendly solution for. Polyester, nylon, acrylic, and other synthetic fibers — all of which are forms of plastic — are now used in over 60% of clothing material worldwide. Even so-called natural fibers like cotton and wool are usually treated with harmful finishing agents or dyes which can make their fibers toxic as well. Recent research shows that 92% of micro-fiber pollution consists of "natural" fibers. We take this issue seriously and are here to help create solutions that will lead to a positive impact on our environment.
Wear. Wear. Wear. Rinse. Repeat.
Our rPET garments are anti-microbial so you can wash them less and wear them more.
Wolven is sustainable in its fabrication but also it’s versatility. We love creating multifunctional designs so you can wear your pieces in many different fashions, multiple times, with fabric you know is durable and built to last. So flip it and reverse it to your next look for double the sustainability.
Increasing the lifecycle of your garments is the most direct way you can reduce waste and pollution in the fashion industry. Keeping clothes in your wardrobe for just 3 months longer can decrease carbon, water, and waste. By buying less and wearing more, we can all have a positive effect on our planet.

Save energy and (a ton of) water by washing your Wolvens by hand. Take it to the next level and reduce ocean microplastics by reusing your wastewater for your houseplants or garden. We recommend using a laundry soap bar, to avoid plastic waste.
No one likes dirty laundry
If you need to use the machine, invest in a monofilament laundry bag. These special bags catch excess fibers and microplastics, saving up to 90% of them from entering wastewater! That’s pretty good. Most things we buy nowadays shed micro-fibers (your Wolvens, your bedding, and other textiles), so it’ll make laundry day feel good.
For laundry that is cleaner for the planet: wash cold and skip the dryer by hang drying.
