How To Care For Silk
Looking after your silk and having minimum impact on the environment is easy with these simple steps.
Cold Hand Wash
Pure silk is a delicate fabric and needs gentle care.
Hand wash your silk inside out and use 10mL (one capful) of our Silk Wash per 5L of cold water.
Immerse the garment, gently and slowly swishing it in the water for a couple of minutes.
To rinse, use cold water - you can add a teaspoon of white vinegar, this will remove excess detergent, soften the silk and restore its lustre.
Try A Laundry Bag
Take care if you decide to wash your silk in a machine, place the garment in a laundry bag and ensure you choose a gentle, cold water cycle using 20mL (two capfuls) of our Silk Wash.
Remove excess water by placing the silk between dry towels and gently pressing the water out. Never wring or twist it dry as it can damage the fibres. Lay your hand washed silk on a clean towel away from sun and heat to bring it back to its natural sheen. Machine washed silk should be gently reshaped and laid flat to dry.
Hang Your Silk
When cared for properly our garments have a long life, made to become the most treasured building blocks of your wardrobe. Silk should be stored in a cool, dry place on a hanger. When packing up silk, make sure it’s placed in a breathable fabric bag, not plastic as it might lock in moisture.
Air Your Clothes
You don't need to wash your silk after wear, the fabric does not absorb odours, so often a good air will help keep garments fresh.
Steam To Restore
Use a steamer for best results and care. If ironing, always turn the silk garment inside out and use a cool setting as heat can easily damage the fragile fibres.
Green Dry Cleaner
We recommend using organic, natural and environmentally friendly dry cleaners that do not use solvents, liquid silicone or harsh chemicals to launder their silk.
Mend What You Can
Value your clothes instead of replacing them – consider repairing to help reduce clothing waste and your carbon footprint. If you're not confident mending yourself, we recommend using an alteration service.
