Due to the fine nature of silk, it must be treated with great care and attention to avoid damage when washing. In order to have your silk look as exquisite as when you first bought it, we recommend that you hand wash only.
- Hand wash in cool water to ensure fabric integrity and longevity.
- Choose a silk detergent with no harsh chemicals.
- Leave immersed in cool water for a short period of time to prevent loss of shine and avoid rubbing.
- Rinse using cold water, adding a teaspoon of vinegar to assist with removing the detergent.
In order to maintain the beauty and delicacy of your silk garment, we recommend air drying only.
- Once rinsed, remove excess water by placing your silk garment between a dry-towel and gently press.
- Keep you silks away from direct sunlight and lay flat or hang to air dry, using padded hangers.
- Never wring silk as it can damage the fibres.
- Do not tumble-dry your silk.
Once dry, iron your silk to restore lustre and sheen.
- Use your iron's delicate or lowest heat setting.
- Iron on the inside side of your garment.
- If you need to iron directly on the front, place a cotton cloth over the area to protect your silk.
Silk should be stored in a cool, dry place in a breathable fabric hanging bag. Be mindful of clips as they can potentially mark the delicate fabric.
Avoid contact with rough surfaces when storing and be mindful of jewellery pieces to prevent pulls to the fabric.
