Fabric Care Guide

Caring for your Silks

Also known as the 'Queen of textiles', Silk is the epitome of luxury and one of the strongest natural fibres with exceptional benefitsIts Hypoallergic and Thermoregulating properties make it ideal for sensitive skin and to maintain a comfortable body temperature in any season. 

-We recommend dry cleaning your silk garment as this is the best way to avoid color bleeding and retain the natural lustre and drape of the fabric. The moisture wicking and antibacterial properties of silk will prolong the time you can wear it without washing

- Spot Clean if needed and avoid twisting or wringing the fabric. Avoid the use of hot water as this can make the fabric harden, become brittle and can tear more easily. 

- Hang your silk garments to air dry avoiding direct sunlight as this will damage the fabric

- Iron your silks inside out on a low heat settting to restore the lustre to the garment. If you need to iron directly on the front, place a cotton cloth over the area to protect the fabric

- Store your silks in a cool, dark and dry place. As a natural fibre, it needs to breathe, storing it in a tightly sealed plastic can often do more harm than good. It's better to store silk garments between layers of cotton fabric or in breathable cotton bags when folded, or hung in zippered garment bags to help your silk garment retain its shape and keep it wrinkle-free for when you're ready to wear it again
