“Supermarket detergents are full of corrosive chemicals, which is why David Samuelsson came up with laundry products made solely from natural ingredients.”
“Tangent GC take away the need for harsh, generic laundry soaps and softeners with their range of gentle & lightly scented products for your entire wardrobe.”
“Tangent GC was conceived to prolong the life of clothing and shoes through non-mass-produced, chemical-free products.”

My grandfather, chimney sweep by profession, could sometimes come across as a bit coarse. He was, nonetheless, meticulous when it came to his wardrobe and dressed with a certain degree of elegance. He did not own many clothes, but the clothes he did have he knew how to care for. His Sunday best was brushed down after use and his collars starched. When out of his wingtips, he made sure to put shoetrees in them and followed this up with contemplative polishing.
Somewhere along the way we stopped caring – presumably when mass produced, cheap, and oftentimes deficient, clothing was introduced. Due to wear and tear the mere idea of garment care seemed distant. And this came to pass over the course of just one generation or two.
Nowadays though, when quality of fabric and pattern making – the passion for craftsmanship – is of interest once more, so is the need for proper care. In the light of this we are set to provide a superior range of garment care products, not emanating from the chemical industry or flung off conveyor belts, but products that will naturally and effectively give your garments a long life.

Stockholm-based Tangent Garment Care has created a range full of beautifully packaged, eco-friendly formulations for garment and shoe care. Each of the products – such as the orange oil-infused fine wash for delicates and stain remover with hints of soya bean and sunflowers – is made with all-natural ingredients and scented with an array of essential oils.
Co-founded by David Samuelsson, Tangent Garment Care was conceived to prolong the life of clothing and shoes through non-mass-produced, chemical-free products. “If you buy a fine cashmere sweater,” says Samuelsson, “why wouldn’t you buy the best detergent to care for it?”
“Today, a passion for craftsmanship, quality of fabric and pattern-making are of interest once more, and so is the need for proper care,” says Samuelsson. “Our superior range of care products naturally and effectively give garments a longer life.”
