Care

We wash things too often nowadays! There is really no need to wash clothing all the time, a simple airing is often enough -especially for silk, which naturally fights off dust and mold. But when the time does comes to wash, here is how it can be done.

You can soak your naturally-dyed garments by hand, send them to the dry-cleaners, or they can go in the machine, but:

1. Wash SEPARATELY
2. Wash COLD
3. Use a DELICATE cycle
4. Use a gentle Ph neutral soap like Marseilles soap or Synthrapol
5. Hang Dry

Some fading is normal and can lead to greater beauty -don’t we love our faded jeans even more? Yes we do!
