KAMO Fit & Care Guide

About our fit

Our clothes are made out of knitted cotton so they're stretchy, comfortable and make for an easy fit.

We know that kids grow fast, so where there's a dual-sized garment it will fit up to the greater size. For example if you're buying for a 5-year-old, the 4-5yrs should fit and there’s no need to buy a bigger size.

(Also, don't tell anyone, but our size 12 and 14 should fit an adult size 6 and 8 respectively).

It can be tricky to buy online, so if you're not sure about the fit, feel free to drop us a line at hello@kamooriginals.com with any questions.

 

Size chart

We’ve provided a measuring chart below so you can check their vital statistics to be sure. 

Tips for measuring:

  • Don’t pull too tight
  • All our measurements are in cm
  • Height: measure from the top of the head to the ground above the feet
  • Chest: measure around the fullest part of the chest
  • Waist: measure above the waistband, around the natural waist line
  • Hip: measure around the fullest part of the seat (bottom)
  • Inseam: measure your child's best-fitting trousers from the crotch to the inside hem. Or from the inside leg to the bare foot and take off 1cm

Caring for your KAMO

General Grubbiness

We use state-of-the-art printing techniques to ensure all our garments have a supersoft handle and worry-free washing.

 

Here’s how we recommend you care for your KAMO clothes in order to get the very best out of them:

  • Wash at 30˚C, inside out, on a gentle cycle
  • Wash with similar colours and never with denim
  • Dry inside out
  • If you can, air dry your KAMO
  • If using a tumble dryer, select a low temperature setting and only dry for a short time.  Tumble dryers love to shrink cotton!
  • Iron inside out

Ever wondered what all the care symbols on your clothes mean?  Take a look at this handy guide.

 

Stains

These tips and the table below them will help you treat a variety of everyday stains that any adventurous kid would be proud to pick up on their KAMO.

In all cases:

  • Treat the stain as soon as you can
  • Don't tumble dry until you have completely removed the stain as the heat could make the stain permanent
