Love for Cotton, Love for the Planet

Masterpieces of craftsmanship, containers of memories in sustainable cotton.

Organic cotton thus becomes an exclusive and precious raw material, both for its aesthetic and functional effects at the highest level, and for the economic growth of individuals and families. And from raw material becomes an element of cohesion among the employees in the supply chain. A tool of knowledge between the Egyptian peasants and the Italian workers who, although geographically distant, are united in entrusting the future and the welfare of their families to cotton.

In the process of industrial transformation, research for the reduction and replacement of chemicals harmful to the environment and people is promoted in line with Greenpeace’s DETOX campaign. From unisex knit, to timeless braids, through the enchanting textures inspired by Masai mats. Little masterpieces of couture yarn to wear and pass on.

Wash and care

Malo garments made of sustainable cotton are elegant and comfortable, designed to last over time. Their care is essential for the cotton to withstand the passage of years. If done correctly, each wash will make the fabrics softer and maintain vibrant colors.

  • It is important to choose a quality laundry detergent with a balanced pH and use only half the amount you would normally use. Make sure the detergent used is bleach-free, as bleach damages natural cotton fibers.
  • Avoid using fabric softeners as aggressive chemicals damage natural fibers. Makò cotton garments will naturally become softer with each wash.
  • Set the washing machine program to a cold and gentle wash. Cold water prevents shrinking, and a low and gentle spin speed will maintain the integrity of the fabric.
  • Hang garments as soon as they are washed on a dry towel or hang them outdoors.
  • Makò cotton garments should be ironed when they are still slightly damp. It is important to keep the iron temperature very low to avoid burning the natural cotton fibers.
