Who is responsible for Duties and Taxes on international shipments?
The receiver is the importer of record and therefore, must comply with all laws and regulations of the destination country. Orders shipped outside of the United States may be subject to import taxes, customs duties and fees imposed by the destination country. The receiver of an international shipment may be subject to such taxes, duties and fees, which are charged once a shipment reaches the receiver's country. It is the receiver’s responsibility to pay for these additional charges for customs clearance. Ably® Apparel has no control over these charges, nor can Ably® predict what they may be. Customs policies vary from country to country so you should contact your local customs office for more information. When customs clearance procedures are required, it can cause delays beyond our original delivery estimates.


Are Ably® Apparel garments anti-microbial?
Ably®'s 100% cotton apparel is "Filium®-activated". We cannot and do not make the claim that Ably® clothing is "anti-bacterial". However, Filium®-activation means that our Ably® tee shirts and hoodies do not absorb and retain many microbes found in human sweat, which cause garments - including most synthetic active wear - to retain odor. This is why you can wear and workout in an Ably® shirt or hoodie for days on end and it will still smell fresh.
Is the Filium® technology safe?
The core technology of Filium® is manufactured in accordance with bluesign® standards for sustainably. Filium® does not contain any nanoparticles, silver, or harmful chemicals that can leach into your skin.
What makes Ably® Apparel different from other clothing that claims to be repellent?
While most, if not all, other clothing claiming to be repellent are made with petroleum-based synthetic materials (nylon, polyester, etc.), Ably® Apparel is 100% natural premium cotton, no synthetics and no nanoparticles. Filium®, our trade secret patent-pending technology, allows us to create natural fabrics and clothing that repel stains, liquids and odors, and have them retain the natural feel, soft touch, and breathability that most of us prefer.
Will Ably® Apparel repel and not absorb every single type of stain, dirt or liquid?
Is Ably® Apparel absolutely perfect? Of course not, nothing is. It probably will absorb dirt, charcoal, or anything else for that matter if it is rubbed or ground into the garment. Since that is not a particularly likely scenario, we can say that if you do accidentally spill wine, coffee, or other liquid on your pristine Ably® tee shirt or hoodie, it’s probably a good idea to sprinkle a few water drops on it, or just flick it off.

Washing and Care

Are there any special laundering instructions for Ably®?
As with other premium cotton garments, we recommend washing Ably® Apparel in cold water with a mild detergent only (no bleach or no other additives). Then you may machine dry on medium heat, but do not add any fabric sheets or other softeners. To be completely eco-friendly, you can hang dry your Ably® – our clothing does not need to be tumble dried to resist stains and odors. Do not wring dry. See more care instructions here
Can Ably® be ironed without damaging the Filium® properties?
Yes! Ironing is not a problem. Iron on a cotton setting as much as you please.
How many wash cycles can Ably® go through before it loses its stain, liquid and odor repelling properties?
The apparel industry estimates that cotton garments have an average life of 30 to 40 washes. Since you don’t need to wash your Ably® tee shirt or hoodie as often as other clothing, and if you follow our care instructions when you wash, we estimate that your Ably® garment’s superior stain/odor/liquid resistant properties should last you for an even longer period of time.
How many times can I wear Ably® before I have to wash it?
Ably® Apparel has been wear- and performance-tested for several years now, both in-house and by independent labs. We’ve also had some folks wear Ably® tee shirts in the gym for a month, and for more than a week at a time in hot and steamy places like Cuba and India. They were all astounded that their shirts stayed odor and stain free.

As such, Ably® tee shirts and hoodies will need to be washed only infrequently (as little as once or twice a month), depending on just how much it has been worn and for what use.
What do I do if something gets on my clothing?
If something does get on your garment the best thing to do is to try and rinse it with water. Do not rub the affected area as this will force it into the fabric. If this does leave a mark then wash the item per our washing instructions, that should get your Ably® Apparel looking fresh and new again.
