Caring for Silk
How do you launder silk?
We recommend dry cleaning to keep the garment as new for longer. If you do prefer washing then please only hand wash with cold water and a delicate soap. Never tumble dry, bleach or use fabric softener. Silk will appear more sandwashed over time if you choose to wash it with water. A light steam can be applied after every wear to refresh the fabric so laundering is not necessary each and every time its worn.
Silk is a delicate fabric so take care when wearing it.
Do not scratch the silk with sharp objects such as jewellery as these can create pulls in the fabric. We pride ourselves with the silk we use, our crepe de chine is the quality used by couture houses. Our prints are all exclusive to us and printed in small batches. Slight irregularities in the fabric are part of its natural character.
