Fabric Index & Care Instructions

Most of our fabrics are natural, hand dyed, and some are Hand Knitted, and Hand printed (silkscreen). Almost All products have been pre-washed to prevent shrinking. Because of this reason, our products should be washed in cold water, not exceeding 30ºC by hand or soft cycle in a washing machine, and should never be tumbled dry in hot air.

Washing our product in Hot water, and on Heavy setting on the washing machine might damage the natural fibers.

Detergent or fabric softener that contains bleaching agents might cause fading of fabric or print colors.

If you dry your Psylo clothes in direct sunlight, the UV light exposure might also cause fading of fabrics or print colors.

To help you understand better the consistency and texture of each fabric, please refer to the following descriptions:

Up-cycled Tyres And Inner Tube

Our series of vegan accessories are made of upcycled bicycle tire or bike and car wheels inner tubes. These materials are not degradable and energy-intensive to recycle. Their strength and durability are superior to leather, which makes them suitable for wristbands, belts and bags. We have also used this heavy duty material as a trim on our jackets and trousers' pockets. Hand Wash only.
Vegan Leather Artificial, with a leather-like finish with some shine to it. We use it for ethical and efficiency reasons, or where the actual leather is cost prohibitive or unsuitable for regular washing. Hand Wash only.
Waxed Fabric

In some of our designs we have introduced a Waxed Cotton and/or Tencel. The latter is covered with a pigment and acrylic coating. This PU coating acts as a transparent layer, making the base fabric stain and wear resistant, and give it a fresh look. In the menswear and accessories collections, we used a drop of pigment for a tonal textural effect. In the womenswear collection, we used the same a dash of shiny silver powder to add femininity and sparkle it up.
