How do you care for and wash your marinière so that it lasts a long time?
Taking care of your marinière is not a complex task in itself, and it all depends on the material your garment is made from. With the 100% cotton marinieres in our collection, it's important to follow the washing instructions. Cotton jersey tends to shrink in the washing machine. Set your washing machine to 30°C maximum and do not tumble dry or dry clean. To preserve your stripes over time, always wash your garment inside out.
