Catfish Designs use a number of technical and performance orientated fabrics across the Swimwear, Active Wear, Cycle and Triathlon categories. Looking after your garments correctly will ensure the maximum performance and longevity for your gear.
Being performance materials, they are not impervious to damage. Please avoid rough surfaces such as the stone edging of pools, concrete ledges, velcro or other such surfaces that can catch or rub on the material. Products that have been damaged due to misuse or not following care instructions will not be replaced.
Active Wear, Cycle and Tri
Washing immediately after use will ensure the best result and longer life for your gear. Always try to wash by hand with cold water, or if you need to machine wash, set to a gentle cycle. Do not tumble dry. Hang in shade, preferably upside down to dry.
The water temp needs to be no more than 30 degrees. Using hot water affects colours as well as the integrity of the chamois materials in the Cycle and Tri gear. Do not use fabric softener and do not iron. Ensure all zips and zipped up, prior to washing to avoid damaging other garments.
At Catfish Designs – our goal is to run a ‘zero waste’ enterprise through re-use/recycle/re-purpose, and composting as much as possible
We take our job of looking after the planet seriously, so for 99% of cases our orders will be shipped in a 100% biodegradable ComPOST ‘real dirt-bag’. This means it will break-down in your compost or garden waste within 90 days. Where possible we will consolidate items into one protective bag, a compostable bag where possible. We are not perfect, but we are pushing to improve and reach 100% zero waste.
We only have one planet and together we can make sure it is there to be enjoyed for future generations.
