We created this page to get your activewear maintenance skills on point!
There are many things, we as an activewear brand can do when it comes to longevity of an item. However, your wardrobe maintenance skills can prolong the lifetime of your favourite items. In fact, the more time goes by after buying an item, the more it matters how you take care of your activewear and the less it matters how the item is made.
Also, 15-30% of the environmental footprint of any garment comes from the use. Taking good care of your activewear differs a lot from taking care of your basic clothing.
Taking care of your activewear begins already at the moment when you choose to buy an item. For what kind of use are you looking for the tights? Is this the first time you buy the specific item or brand? Do you know the right size? We advise thinking about all this before you hit that “buy" button.
Read the product information carefully to find out if the item is right for you. Compare the items, and if you are not sure, you can always send us an e-mail and ask.
When you find the right product, make sure you choose the right size. Take a look at the general size guide on our website if there is no specific size table on the product page. If your measurements are very near or partially overlapping with the bigger size, we advise you to choose the larger size.
We try to add all the information regarding the use and size on the website but we like to keep it short at the same time. We are happy to answer your more detailed questions per e-mail!
When you receive your item, try it out and make sure it fits as you would like it to fit. We kindly ask you to respect the clothes even more at this point. Don’t pull the tights too fiercely. Avoid being near to strong smells e.g. food because different smells attach easily to clothing. Finally, fold the items, you want to return, carefully back to the parcel. If you want to return the item, it must be in the same condition as it was when you received it.
Congratulations, you have now decided to start your journey with a new Népra item. As we mentioned earlier, mastering the wardrobe maintenance skills can prolong the lifetime of your favourite items!
You can find the care instructions of an item on our website under the product information or attached to the product; so don’t cut the care labels off. We have put them in a nice little pocket so they won’t disturb you at all.
After a sweaty training, we advise you to wash your activewear as soon as possible even though a general rule for washing clothes is to wash less. Sportswear is a bit different though. All stretchy activewear items consist of elastane and elastane does not like sweat. If you want your Népras to last, do not leave them to soak in the sweat for too many days.
Wash similar colours together and choose a colour-appropriate washing detergent and a low temperature (no more than 40 degrees C). Don’t use fabric softener when washing your activewear, and don’t tumble dry or dry your activewear in the sunlight. These “do not's" are crucial if you want your Népra activewear to bring you long-term joy.
