Care advice

Silk

Silk is a delicate fabric that requires a great deal of care. Our quality team tests and wash and care of all of our different cloths. Always respect the care advice indicated on the your clothing label.

1 - WASHING 
 
Silk is a precious and delicate material, that becomes even more fragile once wet, that is why we recommend hand washing rather than machine washing.
 
If you opt for a hand wash, use cold rather than luke warm water. Be careful not to press or wrinkle it and don’t let it soak for too long (3 to 5 minutes max). Preferably, use liquid soap because powered soap can stain your clothes.

We don’t recommend it, but if you opt for a machine wash, please use the program “hand wash in cold water” and take care to wash your garment with other items so to not damage it. Use a very soft  soap. If you do not have a “hand wash in cold water” program, do not use your washing machine as heat is silk’s enemy.
2 - DRYING
 
After a hand wash cycle, gently rinse your silk top without twisting it as you may cause the fibres to slip.
- It is recommended to carefully wrap your silk garment in a towel and press gently to remove excess water before drying.
- We advise you to hang your article on a hanger in the open air and without direct exposure to sunlight. Sunlight damages silk fibre and causes its colours to fade.
3 - IRONING
 
We advise you to iron your garment while still wet.
If this is not the case, you can use a damp cloth with an iron at low temperature (important) and without steam.
