Fading Due to Sunlight
The effects of fading due to Sunlight are both harmful & irreversible. Constant and prolonged exposure to sunlight should be reduced as far as possible.
Pilling & Bobbling
Abrasion and lack of care/timely washing of the garment leads to fibre balls appearing on the surface of the fabric. Remove by mild surface brushing.
Trims/Accessories Breaking off
Trims & accessories like zippers, toggles, pocket lining and elastic cords are constructed for normal usage. Extensive abuse of the garment involving sharp objects, work areas with machinery and even the off outburst of brute force results in the garment being damaged. Precaution & Care should be taken at all times.
