PRODUCT GUIDE

TEXTILE PRODUCT GUIDE

Cotton: Cotton is a natural fibre of vegetable origin obtained from the cotton plant. The quality depends on its fineness, purity, shine and colour and especially the length of the fibres, therefore, the longer the fibre the finer, more resistant and regular the final thread. Cotton produces a very soft, fresh, flexible and breathable fabric. It is very resistant and can be used continuously since it tolerates repeated washing.

Linen: Linen is a natural fibre of vegetable origin obtained from the flax plant; it is a complicated and delicate fibre to weave and is therefore considered a high quality fabric. It is extremely fresh, breathable and very nice to the touch; it has no loose threads and is very resistant. It can be washed in cold water but should not be spun.

Ramie: Ramie is a natural fibre of vegetable origin obtained from an Asian plant. Ramie produces a breathable, shiny and very resistant fabric.

Wool: Wool is a natural fibre of animal origin, from sheep fleece. It is a thermal fibre that produces a soft material that is warm and it gives fabric volume and body. It is very long-lasting due to its excellent stretch and elasticity properties. As an absorbent fibre it intensifies colours and is naturally clean since it repels dust particles and dirt in general.

Specific instructions for caring for wool: It tends to become matted and yellow and, therefore, it is best to dry clean. When wet it is best to dry on flat surface after leaving to drip, since it may stretch if hanged when wet. Do not spin dry.

Mohair: Mohair is a natural fibre of animal origin obtained from the Turkish Angora goat; it is silky, smooth and regular. It is one of the richest fibres and when mixed with others it produces soft and full fabrics. Our mohair blankets are especially light and warm compared to other fabrics.

Silk: Silk is a natural fibre of animal origin that is secreted as a very fine thread by larvae (silkworms) to form a cocoon to protect themselves when transforming into silk moths. Silk produces a very smooth fabric, delicate to the touch and greatly valued for its shine and quality. It has high insulating and elasticity properties, it is hard-wearing and is easily dyed, producing very solid colours. It can be dry cleaned or washed at low temperatures, but must not be spun dried.

Wild silk is obtained when the silkworm breaks the cocoon, producing threads with characteristic roughness.

Shantung silk is produced in a specific area of China and is characterised by extremely knotted threads.

Cashmere: Cashmere is a natural fibre obtained from the finest wool. Fabrics with a percentage of cashmere improve in quality and the pilling effect (a raising of fibres produced by friction) is reduced. Using cashmere gives knitted garments greater softness and quality.

Bamboo: Bamboo is a natural fibre of vegetable origin that protects the skin since it has antibacterial, anti-mite and hypoallergenic properties. It is very breathable, making it a very cool fabric. The weaving process of bamboo fabric makes it extra-soft.

Zara Home Down Duvets

Down is a natural product consisting in the feathers used by waterfowl to protect themselves from the cold and wet. The advantage of down over synthetic fibres is that it offers greater thermal insulation with less weight. Our duvets are made using two types of feathers, 90% down and 10% feather down.

Down: Down is the best quality feather, short and shaftless, which means that all its weight and volume to go to insulation, whilst the lack of shaft ensures more comfort.

Feather down: Feather down is a little longer than down, with a very fine shaft. It has the same properties as down but requires more weight to achieve the same results.

Zara Home Towels

Egyptian Cotton Towels:
Egyptian cotton is a variety of cotton obtained from plants exclusive to the Nile River Valley. Towels made from this type of cotton are very soft and very absorbent. In this type of cotton only long and very fine fibres are used which guarantees better quality and makes it very strong, as well as enabling a unique density of colours.

Velour Cotton Towels:
These towels have had the loops of the towelling weave cut at the top on one side of the towel. This creates a terse and soft sensation, bringing out the colours and giving the patterns greater definition. These towels are finer and more delicate than those with traditional towelling, as well as being very decorative, and they stay very absorbent, especially on the reverse side.

Cotton Towelling Towels:
Cotton towelling towels are very absorbent on both sides. Unlike velour towels, they are generally heavy towels, drier to the touch and more absorbent.

Carded Cotton Towels:
Our basic carded cotton towels are of the highest quality, since they remain very absorbent and dry to the touch. The cotton is carded to separate impurities from the fibres and to produce thick and voluminous threads.

Washing instructions for basic towels:
Zara Home recommends following the washing instructions for towels to care and maintain them. They are especially important for the first three washes, although they are valid for the whole of the towel's useful life.

  • Always wash towels following the care and washing instructions symbols on the label.
  • Always wash with a full load to protect the towels. Do not wash if the weight of the articles is less than half the washing machine's full load (2 kg.)
  • Follow the same instructions for tumble drying: dry with full load.
  • Always wash together with similar colours.
  • Use detergents that do not contain oxygen based or optical whiteners to guarantee that the colours remain the same over the product's useful life.
  • Use small quantities of fabric softener so as not to eliminate the towel's absorbent properties or make the cotton fibres too slippery.
