As cotton can often be prone to shrinking when it is washed and dried, it is recommended to check the individual care label for each piece and follow the instructions carefully. Cotton can sometimes be prone to shrinking when it is washed and dried, and to prevent this happening it is recommended to use water that is 30°C or below, either by hand or in the washing machine. Colored cotton garments should be turned inside out before washing. Gently stretch cotton to restore the original shape and air dry naturally.
Garments that are crafted from lace, or trimmed with the delicate fabric, will need special care to ensure they stay looking their best. If your lace becomes stained, it will need to be cleaned quickly as stains can stick to the lace fibres permanently if left untreated for too long. We would always recommend checking the care label before attempting to clean lace, but hand washing in warm water and a detergent without enzymes is considered to be the safest option. Massage the soapy water into the lace and leave to soak for around 30 minutes. Use a gentle plunging action to remove dirt and stains, and avoid rubbing. Never wring or twist lace fabric. Lay flat and allow to dry naturally, before folding and storing in a drawer. It is advised to avoid using the washing machine to clean lace, but if it is required to remove tough stains, always use a gentle wash cycle and place in a laundry bag to protect against damage.
Simple steps are required to prolong the life of luxurious silk garments, even if the silk percentage is low. Some silks are washable, and for others dry cleaning is recommended, therefore we advise always checking the instructions on the care label of your item before attempting to clean. If your silk is not dry clean only, then it can be hand washed in lukewarm water with a delicate detergent. It is advised to clean silk using a lower temperature to other fabrics, as hot water can affect the material’s natural properties and damage to the fibres. We also recommend selecting a specially-formulated silk detergent, which will be gentler on its natural proteins. Turn the item inside out, and soak for up to 30 minutes, then rinse with cool water to remove any remaining soap. Silk should not be tumble dried, and instead can be laid flat to dry naturally. If you need to clean in the machine, first place in a laundry bag, select a delicate, cold-water cycle and remove promptly once the cycle has finished to reduce wrinkles. If the care label on your silk item says that it can be ironed, then use a low iron setting and ideally iron while it is still slightly damp.
