TOP TIPS FOR TAKING CARE OF SILK
Dry cleaning: We recommend getting your silk pieces professionally dry-cleaned in order to prevent shrinking or misshaping the fabric, particularly if they have stains or marks.
Avoid washing: Try to avoid washing your silk pieces, however if you cannot get it dry cleaned professionally, carefully wash the garments in cold water.
Drying silk: If you do choose to lightly hand wash your pieces in cold water, avoid drying in direct sunlight as this can cause colour fading. Opt for drying in a cool, dry place instead.
Steaming for creases: Due to its delicate nature, silk can be prone to creasing with wear. Use a steamer to remove creases, however If persistent, iron on the reverse side with a very low heat or using the dedicated ‘silk’ setting some irons have.
Do not tumble dry: Avoid tumble drying as it can damage the delicate fibres and lead to garment shrinkage.
Be mindful of cosmetic products: When wearing silk do be mindful of products such as deodorant and makeup making contact with the fabric as depending on the ingredients, this can cause minor marks on silk fabrics.
