Spun from the threads of the silk worm’s cocoon, silk is a soft, luxurious fabric that breathes well and insulates. Our collections include a variety of silk weaves, including CDC, Twill and Satin.
We strictly recommend professional dry-cleaning for silk items—particularly if the garment is stained. This is the best way to extend the life of your silk, and maintain its subtle lustre and delicate feel. Please don’t wash your silk garment, even in cold water; it will shrink. Once cleaned, hang your garment in a cool, dry place.
Silk is prone to creasing with wear. We recommend steaming to remove creases. If you don’t have a steamer, hang your garment in the bathroom following a hot shower. If creases persist, flip your garment inside out and set the iron to low heat (or the silk setting, if applicable ). Always put a cloth or tea towel between the silk and the iron to protect the garment. Only iron silk if it’s completely dry.
Do not tumble dry. Exposing garments to lengthy periods of heat at high temperatures damages fibres and shrinks garments. Always refer to your garment’s label for precise care instructions.
