Seger's quality 650 (Batavia) has a long-staple 100% cotton fibre. Batavia is a weaving technique that makes the fabric equilateral. The name is originally derived from a silk cloth in Bataviate technology. Batavian gets a special whiteness and fine lustre in the finishing touch.
Important to consider for garments with Indigo staining is that these contain excess dye and can dry/wet weep before washing it out. The bulk of Seger's Denim items are garment washed once before delivery, but Indigo-coloured garments usually need more washes to stop weeping. The number of washes needed may depend on how light or dark the garment is. Keep in mind that dry weeping can affect light-coloured furniture, untreated wood, light clothes, underwear and shoes.
When choosing garments in a quality with a wool mix, it is very important to carefully follow the washing instructions in the garment. Choose a detergent for wool and do not use rinse detergent. Wash inside out, run a gentle wool program, then hang dry your garment. Always use a press cloth when ironing.
Clean leather and skins continuously. At least once a year if it's something you use often. Take a wet cloth or rag, rub into bile or saddle soap. Afterwards wipe with a clean damp cloth.
