Looking for fabric that’s both tough and tender? Both modern and made to last? Everlast lives up to its name, without ever sacrificing that good feeling we all crave. Its wider, thicker knit and characteristic structure creates the ‘tough softness’ that’s unique to this fibre. This powerhouse is water-resistant, wrinkle-resistant and light as air. And it’s even got a pleasant, neutral scent.
Everlast is a 100% PES, microfibre fabric made of fine synthetic fibres. Its polyester is derived from raw materials like coal, water and petroleum. And when you’re done enjoying it (if you ever are), Everlast is recyclable, and can be reused for the production of new PES material.
Use and care
- Keep the fabric from direct sunlight, heaters, wet or rough surfaces.
- Try not to allow Everlast to come in contact with materials that are not colourfast, as they might cause discoloration. Brighter shades of fabric tend to take on abrasion from items such as jeans more easily.
- Fabric imperfections are normal, and will occur over time, depending of usage. They can include fading, abrasion marks, ageing, pilling or napping. These will give your piece its own, distinct character.
- Gently remove dust particles with a soft, dry, white, cotton cloth. It is recommended to not use rough cloths. Friction is not your friend.
- If you spill water-soluble liquids (coffee, tea, milk etc.) on the fabric, dab them immediately with a soft, clean, cotton, white cloth or absorbent paper. Next, rub the stain gently from the outside towards the centre, using a soft, clean, white, cotton cloth dampened in lukewarm water. Leave the surface to dry.
- If you spill greasy substances (oil, chocolate, ketchup etc.), dab them carefully with absorbent paper. Then, use a pH-neutral detergent (like dishwashing detergent), just five drops diluted in one litre of warm water. The best way to clean is with a soft, clean, white, cotton cloth, dampened in the mixture, using dabbing or absorption method, not rubbing vigorously. Again, the friction thing.
- For a periodical, thorough clean, you could consider an at-home dry cleaning product. Use a dry cleaning ecological solvent (that can be used by hand) together with a soft, white, cotton cloth, following the solvent cleaning instructions.
- Test all cleaners first for the effect on a small piece of fabric that is not immediately visible.
