Material information | Kuovin verkkokauppa

Kuovi's products are made from natural fibers. The colors are chemically attached to the fibers and thus do not affect the natural feel of the fabric.

Currently our main fabric is cotton and flax/linen for which we recommend machine wash in 60 oC, light spin and ironing up to 200 oC (three points in ironing symbol). Fabrics are steamed and washed in 95 oC before delivery to the customer.

Kuovi's biodegradable​ sponge cloths are ecologically manufactured from recycled fiber and printed with non-toxic water-based dyes which means they can be safely composted.​ Sponge cloths are made of 70% wood pulp and 30% cotton and the material passes the European standard EN-13432. You can wash a sponge cloth in 60 oC​ and it is easiest to do together with the dishes in a dishwasher. If you want to iron a sponge cloth, it is worth doing while it is still moist after washing. Ironing up to 150 oC (two points in ironing symbol)​.

In the future we are expanding our material portfolio with e.g. organic cotton, cotton jersey, silk, wool and a variety of upholstery fabrics depending on their availability.
