As cotton lacks natural anti-bacterial and odor-resistant properties, it requires more frequent washing. 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 fibers permanently if left untreated for too long. We advise hand washing your lace garment in warm water, unless specified on the item’s care label. Use a mild detergent, and allow the lace 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. Place on a clean, dry towel and press gently to remove excess water, and then lay flat to air dry naturally. If you really need to clean lace in the washing machine, always place lace within a cotton wash bag and use a gentle and cool wash cycle.
To help keep your silk items soft and in excellent condition for years to come, it is recommended to follow the instructions on each item’s care label. Some silk products are strictly dry clean only, while others can be hand washed or machine washed on a gentle, cold-water cycle. 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 fibers. We also recommend selecting a specially-formulated silk detergent, which will be gentler on its natural proteins. Avoid spot cleaning silk, as rubbing in only one area can cause the material to lighten in just that spot. 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.
