Corduroy Care Guide

Corduroy is a material favoured for its durability and velvety touch.

There is no real consensus on the origins of corduroy, but it is thought to have been invented in the Egyptian city of Fustat, where a heavy cotton cloth with a raised sheared nap was created, similar to that of velvet or moleskin.

The cloth was brought to Europe in medieval times by Italian and Spanish merchants. It was used to line gowns for warmth and for a fashionable, padded look. The ridges or ribs – known as “wales”, came about as a means of strengthening the fabric and extending its lifespan. Corduroy can have anywhere from 1.5 to 21 wales per inch, though it is typically between 10 to 12.

At TOAST, we like corduroy for its supple, velvety feel, and its casual, practical look.

How to wash

We recommend to wash your cord inside out and with buttons and zips closed, on 30 degrees or on a cool setting.

Try not to overload your machine to avoid friction. Abrasion to the surface of cord can damage the pile and alter the texture.

How to dry & store

For the best result, shake out cord garments after washing. Smooth down the seams, pockets and plackets and hang to air dry – this will avoid the need to iron your garment.

To store, it is best to hang your cord up.
