We chose to create a simple finishing, so the length of our trousers can be adjusted effortlessly to suit the different styling ideas people prefer. Any professional tailor should be reduce fabric and mend the piece together, to look like the original piece.
It really depends on the usage, and what you are doing with the product. Generally our clothes can last for years if you treat them well. However if you put them to the test in high endurance sports and wear them every day, the wear and tear should be easy to see after about 6months to a years time. Our products are meant for urban outdoors environments, currently they are not engineered to be ideal for sports. They assist you in the city, make you look good and feel unrestricted in the sense of mobility. However its important to take care of the product to ensure the products longevity.
We work with the leading textile technology companies, which ensure highest quality and optimal results. We estimate that the technologies should last approximately 20-40 washing cycles, however depending on the care given this can vary. In most cases, MAMQUAM's clothing does not need the same maintenance as regular clothing, and furthermore does not need to be washed as often, as it remains fresh for a couple of weeks or sometimes even months, depending on usage.
The inside of the textile absorbs and distributes moisture over a large surface area, speeding up the evaporation process. The increased rate at which the moister evaporates close to the skin leads to an increase in the natural cooling sensation caused by this effect. Sweat marks are practically invisible from the outside.
Dark colours tend to absorb more heat than light colours, this effect is reduced significantly with the embedded UVA and UVB protective technologies. Furthermore the technologies provide reliable protection from the suns rays. To quote our supplier "A UPF of 30 (minimum) is guaranteed for all colours and textiles, without the feel or look of the product being affected." - Schoeller Textiles
The embedded technologies result in the fabric being water and stain repellent, this is not to be confused with water/stain proof. The technologies allow the material to be protected and remain significantly dry and clean in wet and dirty situations.
Mamquam is for everyday. Indoor, outdoor, in the city, in the airplane or on your couch. We made our garments so you look good effortlessly and always feel amazing. Despite our products being robust, and advanced with the integrated textile technologies, we do not advise customers to do sports in our clothing. It is of course possible and conducive, but high endurance sports cause the product to deteriorate at a faster rate.
Making is definitely suitable for biking, however what kind of biking? Our trouser for instance are excellent for biking to work in the rain, or biking in or around city. However again we would like to clarify here that so far we have not conceived any products with the purpose of sports. Our products thus far are for daily life and therefore should not be confused with specialised biking gear.
Each product has a custom digital hang-tag which can be found on the footer of our website. Here we explain the product specific care instructions. In general, our clothing is machine washable unless indicated otherwise. Due to the embedded technologies the clothing will remain clean throughout most activities. Rather than washing the trousers every time a stain is encountered, we encourage to use a damp cloth and simply wipe away the stain, unless you have really been in some sticky situation.
Before the wash we recommend you close all zippers, buttons and if possible place the clothing inside a mesh washing bag.
We advise to hang the clothes outside for a night to air it out once in a while, but get used to the fact that our products do not need to be washed a lot. We have tested pants for over 1 year without washing them, and they look great.

In recent years there have been various studies which demonstrate, alarming numbers of tiny fibres stemming from synthetic fabrics being washed and then ending up in oceans and in ocean life. Synthetic microfibers have the potential to poison the food chain due to the fibers’ size allowing them to be readily consumed by wildlife. So in short by buying certain synthetic products we are poising ourselves and our world.
How do we ensure our synthetic fabrics do not fall into the same category? This is pretty simple: Since Micromodal is a cellulose based textile, it does not give off synthetic plastic microfibers.
The outside layer of our garments are both water and stain repellent! This function helps keep you dry and look good, even in the rain! Despite these functions, the fabric is still breathable. This grants you a comfortable feeling both inside and out, in rain or sunshine.
Nuisances that come with overheating, such as the socially awkward appearance of perspiration marks, are eliminated thanks to the fabrics’ ability to reduce the thermal radiation absorption that occurs from long sunlight exposure. Although darker coloured textiles typically absorb more light and heat, all our garments, both light and dark, provide exceptional heat management and UV protection. They help the natural cooling process of the body and reduce the heat build up you often experience, such as while waiting for your bus on your way to work on a hot summer’s morning!
The result: our MAMQUAM garments, even the beloved black, will remain cool to the touch! The benefit to you? An appreciable difference in comfort, wellbeing, and performance. Additionally, you’re skin is protected from harmful UV rays with a guaranteed minimum of UPF 30.
Our garments dry extremely quickly; in fact, they dry significantly faster than conventional materials. The reason is that the inner side of the textile quickly absorbs moisture resulting from perspiration, and rapidly distributes this moisture along the entire textile for evaporation. Furthermore, the natural cooling process of the body is assisted as the moisture evaporates close to the skin. The added benefit thereof is the non-noticeability of perspiration marks, allowing you to look great despite breaking a sweat! The result is a constant feel-good sensation.
The innovative synthetic blend consisting primarily of micromodal is designed to provide quality, stretchability, and a real sensation of heavenly comfort, all while still withstanding tough wear.
