Garment Care

All our garments are chosen with great care to provide excellent performance in the challenging environment of school. We hope this guide to the care symbols, which are reproduced in every garment we supply, will help you get the very best performance from your purchase.

As general good practice, please choose the appropriate washing powder and always wash coloureds and whites separately. We do not generally recommend the use of fabric softeners.
