How to care for silk fabrics

At the 1st time, it’s recommended to use dry-cleaning to fix the colorant.

Not all silk fabrics are washable. You can wash only chiffon and crushed chiffon with a plain weave. Note that if the fabrics are embroidered, they are not washable too.
(up to 30°С) with a mild detergent.

Take a swatch of your silk fabric and make a test wash. Use lukewarm water up to 30° C with a mild detergent. After washing, to keep the natural luster use 1 teaspoon of vinegar per 10 liters of water.

Do not bleach and soak a fabric, it can damage the fibers.

Rinse gently, dry silk fabrics on a towel.

Press a fabric at a temperature below 110° C when it is slightly wet or use a wet pressing cloth (on and under a fabric) in the warp direction.

Silk satin and silk velvet fabrics are delicate, so it's better not to press them but steam (with a garment steamer only).

Before cutting silk fabrics, you need to make a wet pressing.

Sharp scissors are your best friend.

Pins and needles should be extra- or ultra-fine. Use a smooth thread of high quality.

When sewing, use a thin and sharp needle, choose a longer stitch length. You may also apply a special plastic presser foot to ease the process.

Use fusible interfacing for a collar, overlay, belt or cuffs.
