Silk

SILK IS A LIGHT, FINE AND RESILIENT NATURAL FIBER THAT REPEATS COLORS BEAUTIFULLY.

It is important that your silk garment is loose enough to prevent seams from fraying.

Care tip #1

We recommend washing silk items gently in plenty of cool water with a detergent designed for silk. Washing them separately inside out will help keep the colors even. Check the care label for exact instructions – "wash by hand" should be taken literally. Avoid wringing and rubbing.

Care tip #2

Since silk is a delicate natural material, it is easily affected by chemicals such as perfumes or hairsprays. Sunlight may also weaken silk fibers and fade colors.

Care tip #3

Silk items are best ironed on the reverse side through a damp cloth. We recommend storing them in an airy space, for example, on a sturdy hanger.
