FAQ & Taking care of your NANÁ clothes
Taking care of your NANÁ clothes
Each sweater and blouse from N A N Á is reclaimed and is carefully repaired with delicate embroidery. I make sure to hide or incorporate the pre-loved scars in design and create artwork statements out of it.
As these garments are vintage and reclaimed, they need to be handled and cared for gently. Please follow the following instructions to ensure that your new favorite statement piece is loved and worn for another lifetime.
All of the pieces can be washed in the washing machine (check description section of desirable garment to make sure if not recommended otherwise), but you can also hand wash your garment in a sink or bath.
- Only wash N A N Á sweaters and blouses when you need to.
- Wash colored cotton clothes separately.
- Choose your favorite gentle laundry detergent. I am using this one: Tropska verbena
- To remove any stains (especially on white clothes) use a gentle yet effective detergent. I highly recommend this one from a local vegan zero waste shop: Puer
- I recommend washing with a delicate laundry/wool program at the lowest speeds.
- Hang it to a hanger and leave it to dry naturally.
- The maximum recommended temperature for ironing is 110 ° C (check material specifications).
- Dry cleaning and bleaching of the garments is not recommended.
Please never put a N A N Á piece on a high temperature/spin program or in a tumble dryer, as you will risk ruining your garment.
Storing your N A N Á garments
We recommend neatly folding up your sweater to keep its shape, while blouses can be hung on a hanger, decorated with tiny lavender* bouquets. This way you’ll keep all the moths away and your wardrobe will smell just like a trip to Lavender fields of Provence.
*can also use rosemary, mint, thyme, eucalyptus, bay leaves and cloves. For best results, refresh every few months.

I wholeheartedly believe that we can creatively reduce the amount of discarded clothing and thus keep our planet and people safe. I love looking for value in old things and combining my creativity with a sustainable lifestyle.
