Care

caring for silk

silk does not need washing as much as other fabrics. you can easily freshen the pieces up by hanging it in a damp bathroom or steaming it. steamers do not only take away creases but they also kill bacteria. if you have a stain and need to wash your piece, do not rub the stain with water or soap, this will fade the color.

if you wash your silk piece use a laundry bag to protect it from other pieces and prevent it from rubbing. if you wash several silk pieces, use separate laundry bags. use the most gentle program on your washing machine and turn down the spin cycle. if you are unsure, you can visit your local dry cleaner.

do not spray your silk pieces with perfume or hairspray and do not hang silk pieces in direct sunlight for a long time. the colors will change or fade.

what is silk?

silk is a natural fiber. it is made by silkworms - from the cocoons spun by the larvae of the silk moth. once the cocoons are collected, the process of reeling the silk begins. the cocoons are immersed in hot water to soften silk and facilitate the unwinding of the silk fibers. the fibers from several cocoons are carefully unwound and combined to form a single silk thread. 

why love silk?

silk is a very breathable fabric and helps regulate your body's temperature. it helps keep you cool when it's hot and keeps the heat when it is cold. silk is also durable if you care for it properly. silk is also super gentle to the skin and perfect for people with allergic reactions to synthetic fabrics. it is hypoallergenic!

silk production

silk can be a sustainable fiber - it comes from a renewable resource, can biodegrade and does not use a lot of water, chemicals or energy. however, it all depends on the ethical standards for chemical use and labor practices. also, animal rights problems are an issue. this is why we work with producers that only use fair silk or left over fabrics.
