What is the best way to wash Twiga gear?  

For the longevity of the garments we recommend cold wash and hang dry. If your pants or crops somehow end up in a warm wash and dry there is no need to worry as we test our goods under the same conditions.


What type of fabric do you use?

Our signature fabric is an 90% Nylon, 10% Lycra supplex. We use this fabric as it has 4-way stretch, great for movement, moisture wicking properties, great for sweat management, a high Lycra content, to help keep the shape of the garment and create a sucking effect that keeps everything in place during strenuous exercise. On top of all that it has a cottony soft feel that only gets better with time.
