Cleaning & Care Instructions

Our exclusive collection of basin sets, shower and bath systems, bidets and kitchen mixers are manufactured from the highest quality brass. Please follow these cleaning and care instructions in order to maintain the beauty of the product you’ve selected.

For cleaning and maintaining all our finishes, use warm water or a non-abrasive liquid soap that does not contain alcohol and polish with a clean soft cloth. Under no circumstances should rough, abrasive or acidic cleaners be used. Do not use harsh abrasives, scouring pads, steel wool or metal cleaners as they may damage the surface.

Our weathered copper and brass finishes will gradually darken over time, developing a rich dark “patina”. This is a natural process and in no way reflects any kind of flaw in the quality of the copper. Your weathered copper or brass product has been given a light antique finish. The light antique patina accentuates the variations in the surface of the finish and is part of the overall design. The lavatory basin or tub has also been given a light coat of wax. The wax will protect from further oxidation or darkening though over time, the surface will naturally develop a darker, rich patina. Cleaning and maintaining an attractive patina on your lavatory or bathtub is easy if you follow these simple care instructions. Once water dries, it leaves behind calcium stains which may alter the weathering process in an undesirable way. To ensure an even aging, it is important to remove water drops after use with a soft cloth or chamois leather.

Under NO circumstances should a silicone sealant be used when fitting or handling any of our products. If such sealants come into contact with the product, the sealant residue MUST be thoroughly washed immediately.
