Le Guide de la Maille


The Alpaca

1 - Wash the silk

Silk is a very delicate material, which becomes even more fragile when wet. This is why we recommend washing by hand, in cold water with a mild soap , without rubbing your garment too much or letting it soak.

If you opt for machine washing, choose a special program for delicate fabrics and at low temperatures. If in doubt, prefer dry cleaning to pressing.

2 - Dry the silk

After washing, air drying your garment is the preferred option. Be careful not to twist your piece to wring it out, but rather wrap it gently in a towel and press lightly to remove excess water.

Then hang your silk piece on a hanger and make sure you don't expose it to direct sunlight , to avoid fading.

3 - Iron the silk

We advise you to iron your garment while still damp , on the inside out to keep its shine and to set your iron to low temperature .


Le Point de Riz

La maille point de riz est une maille assez classique avec beaucoup de relief, avec un point réversible qui rend aussi bien sur l’endroit que sur l’envers. Elle alterne en fait les mailles endroit et des mailles envers, créant ainsi une maille « bossue ».

C’est une maille très texturée, que nous adorons utiliser chez Devernois, en particulier pour les vestes. Attention à ne pas confondre la maille point de riz avec la côte, où les mailles endroit et les mailles envers sont alignées les unes au-dessus des autres ! C’est une maille qui peut paraitre fragile, mais qui est en fait très facile d’entretien car facilement lavable et raccoutrable !



1 - Wash the mesh

We recommend hand washing for the maintenance of your mesh pieces. Be sure to wash your garment in cold or lukewarm water (no more than 20°) and to use a very mild liquid detergent. Be careful not to pull on the mesh and not to let it soak so as not to risk deforming it. Rinse it gently, always avoiding twisting it.

If you prefer the machine wash option, choose the cold wool program and use a special wool liquid detergent.

2 - Dry the mesh

To dry the mesh, we recommend that you do it flat , on a towel or on a flat surface. Do not dry your mesh on a hanger if it is wet, you risk relaxing it.

3 - Iron the stitch

We recommend that you do not iron your knit , if it has been dried properly this will not be necessary. If necessary, iron very gently on the reverse , taking care not to press too hard so as not to crush the knit.

Be sure to store your knit flat when dry. Hanging it on a hanger could deform your garment.

Le Jacquard

Le Jacquard est un procédé de tissage (puis de tricotage) qui puise ses origines dans notre région, puisque c’est Joseph-Marie Jacquard, un tisserand lyonnais, qui lui a donné naissance. Il a été le précurseur de ce procédé mécanique, qui permet le tissage et le tricotage de dessins complexes, sans aucune aide manuelle.

Le Jacquard se distingue par l’entrelacement de mailles lors du tricotage, créant un dessin, visible sur l’endroit et l’envers du tricot, en inverse. Ce procédé offre des possibilités de motifs multiples, des plus traditionnels comme des plus modernes, à l’image des mailles jacquard de nos collections. C’est une maille qui nous est chère, puisque c’est elle qui est à l’origine du succès de notre Maison dès les années 30, avec la création de jerseys en jacquard masculins.



1 - Wash the leather

To clean your leather clothes, we simply recommend that you use a clay stone with a clean cloth or a gentle cleansing milk to apply to a cotton pad and then spread in small circular movements on the garment.

We strongly advise against washing your leather garment in the washing machine, as this could damage it.

2 - Dry the leather

If your leather piece has been wet, we recommend that you leave it to dry in the open air , away from the sun so as not to damage it.

3 - Iron the leather

Leather is a living material that hates water. We therefore advise you to switch off the steam function of your iron. Place a cloth between the iron and your leather garment to avoid direct contact with the heat and set your iron to a low temperature.

To smooth leather, you can also hang it on a hanger in your bathroom : controlled exposure to steam will soften the leather and allow smooth smoothing.



1 - Wash the linen

To clean your linen piece in the washing machine, we advise you not to exceed 40°C in order not to damage it. Avoid chlorine-based detergents which will tend to yellow and damage the fiber.

If you want to de-yellow a white linen, you can occasionally use white vinegar which will act as a softening cleanser.

2 - Dry the linen

To dry linen, we advise you to hang it on a hanger and let it air dry. Your garment will be even more beautiful and less wrinkled!

If you opt for machine drying, limit it to 600 maximum rotations to reduce the friction of your garment against the drum and any trace of breakage.

3 - Iron the linen

We advise you to iron your garment while still damp, inside out to avoid creases and to set your iron to high temperature (200°C).

To smooth out your linen piece, you can use starch.


La Maille Piquée

La maille piquée est un tricot qui alterne les tensions de fils pour créer une armure solide et respirante, avec du fil de coton.

Elle est facilement reconnaissable grâce à ses petits motifs en relief en forme de losange ou carrés alignés. C’est une maille fine, souple et très douce, assez extensible et surtout, très facile d’entretien.

C’est un tricot d’un grand confort, très souvent utilisé dans la fabrication de polos par exemple.
