Our advice for washing your jeans made in France

Simple and basic, find here our washing instructions to take care of your jeans. You'll see, it's not complicated.

At L'Appart', you are spoiled for choice when it comes to finding jeans made in France that fit your legs: jeans made in Nancy by DAO, jeans made in Ile-de-France by La Gentle Factory or jeans made in Normandy by Kiplay.
You will choose it for its shape (straight, semi-slim, slim, flared), its color (raw, stone blue, black, gray) or perhaps also for its composition (organic cotton, linen, with a hint of elastane. ..).

Special purist foreword!

Before washing your jeans for the first time, we invite you to bathe them completely for 1 to 2 hours in lukewarm water with 4 tablespoons of white vinegar. Turn it upside down before making it, and stir it when you pop around the kitchen.

This process allows the dye to be fixed permanently.
If you have the courage to do it before each wash, your jeans will thank you forever!

How often should I wash my jeans?

Wash your jeans once a month if they are your favorite jeans and they never leave your side.

Wash it every 2 months if you alternate it with other pants.

In any case, your jeans will appreciate being aired between each wash, or even spending 48 hours in the freezer to kill bacteria.

How do I wash my jeans?

Wash at 30 degrees , jeans inside out, without fabric softener and in a machine that is not too full (otherwise white chips may appear on the fabric).
Never ever use a tumble dryer, give it time to dry flat even if you are in a hurry to put it on!

If you iron it, it will be inside out, iron not too hot.

To note :

Dao, La Gentle Factory and Kiplay jeans will tend to relax at the waist and will not shrink when washed.

We wish you good adventures with your jeans made in France!
