Washing and maintenance of your Velfont products

You can contribute very easily to the environment by always washing your clothes at the lowest possible temperature. Whatever the composition of your garment, and even if it allows very high washing temperatures, if you wash it at low temperature you will be extending its useful life and contributing your grain of sand to the planet. Also avoid the use of chemicals such as bleach, due to its high level of contamination.

We work on the continuous improvement of all phases of our production process and other operations.
