How to care for natural silk items to make them last longer

Natural silk is a delicate fabric - the better you care for it, the better it will care for you. Here are our suggestions for treating your new silk items:

Hand-wash is the best solution for natural silk - submerge it in warm water (up to 30 degrees), add gentle detergent or soap, soak for 30 min, then rinse with cool water, do not wring, but gently press the water out of your item.

If you must wash in the machine, we recommend to select the delicate cycle on your washing machine and make sure the water temperature is cold and the spin is low. Add delicate detergent. 

Lay the item flat in its natural shape.

Iron on low temperature set to the “steam” setting or just hover over the item with steam. 

Dry-cleaning is another safe method of taking care of your silk items, especially the clothes. 

Use natural silk scrunchies and headbands only in clean, dry hair. Do not use together with dry shampoo or other strong hair products, it may ruin the fabric.
