Marie France Van Damme's pieces never fail to make a statement. Silk items are a great investment, and it pays to care for them properly. Taking care of silk doesn’t need to be difficult, we would always recommend carefully following the care instructions on each individual silk product. Some silk products are labelled as strictly ‘Dry Clean Only’, while others have ‘Dry Clean’ as the recommended cleaning method but may also be hand washed or machine washed. Add a small amount of mild detergent to lukewarm water, before gently swishing around to remove any dirt or residue. Leave to soak for no more than five minutes, and rinse well. Never wring out silk items, and do not put in the tumble dryer. Instead, leave to air dry naturally. If machine washing is advised on the item’s care label, choose a gentle, lower-temperature spin cycle. Due to its delicate nature, careful storage of silk is a must. We recommend placing in a breathable cotton bag when folded, or hanging up in a zippered garment bag to keep it wrinkle-free. Discover the new-season dresses from Marie France Van Damme.
