Cashmere Care
Do not hang your cashmere it will stretch out of shape. Keep it folded flat.
Let your cashmere rest between wears. Try to allow it to rest a couple of days between each wear to allow the fibres to relax and air.
If it needs a little press to get rid of pesky wrinkles, lightly iron on reverse on low with a gentle steam.
Cashmere, like all wools, does not really need to be washed too regularly. The fibres do not retain odours and over-washing can break down the natural fibres. Just lightly air your garment after wearing to keep it feeling fresh
If you get a small, light stain, do not spot clean. And definitely, don’t rub the stain this can break the delicate fibres. Mix a small amount of stain remover with cold water, apply to stain for a few minutes and then wash the whole garment.
Any stain bigger than a light stain - take to the dry cleaner. But do not dry clean your cashmere regularly as it can damage the fibres natural oils.
It’s best to hand wash your cashmere. Do so by hand in a large tub or hand basin in cold water. Warm or hot will shrink your garment. But do not soak for longer than 10 mins.
Use a mild detergent or hair shampoo. What’s gentle on your hair, is perfect for cashmere.
Gently press out the soapy water, rinse in cold water, press out the water again. Rolling up in a towel to get rid of the excess water is always good. Then lie flat to dry away from heat and sunlight.
When wearing, watch out for anything that will rub or catch. The fine yarns are easily broken.
Piling will occur around areas that the garment is getting ongoing friction -under and down the sides of arms, around cuffs and sometimes across the shoulders/back if you are working in an office chair all day.
When piling occurs, use a cashmere comb to remove the pills, then hand wash, dry flat and gently steam press.

In 1995 Olga went overseas to work for a textile company. She was inspired by the prints and textures that she worked with every day, creating designs with the bold prints she worked with. Even from a young age, Olga loved searching for inspiration and treats every collection she creates today with the love and care. Later, she moved to Colombia and discovered a small town called Tasco in Mexico, which was famous for its silver. With this lustrous and rare silver, Olga started her design career creating intricate jewellery. There she discovered an entirely new love for design. Bringing the designs back to London, they sold out. From there, she began designing other accessories; purses and satchels and moved towards designing clothing. Her designs blew up and were officially picked up, by, Topshop’s Oxford Street flagship store in 1998. From there she went on to exhibit her collections at fashion shows - first in Europe - later, in Japan, US, and all over the world. She returned home to Melbourne to open her first Olga de Polga retail location on the famous Chapel Street.
