High-quality pieces that are made from silk require a little care and maintenance to keep them looking their best. When it comes to a fabrics like silk, it is important to care for it properly to keep it in good condition. We advise a specialist cleaning regime to keep it looking its best. Some silk products are strictly dry clean only, while others can be hand washed or machine washed on a gentle, cold-water cycle. To safely clean silk at home, we recommend hand washing with a mild detergent and cool water. Leave to soak for no more than five minutes, and rinse well. The high temperatures of the tumble dryer can shrink or damage silk, so lying flat and allowing to air dry naturally is best. If machine washing is specified on the care label, choose a gentle cycle. 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. Don’t miss our edit of designer dresses.
