Maintaining the silk of your shawls, blouses and scarves is as easy as caring for them.

The silk of your shawls, blouses and scarves, purchased at Ensedarte, is delicate and requires special care to maintain its beauty and durability. Here are some essential tips for the care of your unique pieces.

1. Gentle Cleaning

Hand wash silk with cold water and a mild detergent. Avoid using washing machines as they may damage the texture of the fabric.
Dip gently and avoid rubbing the painted areas.

Natural Drying

After washing, do not twist the silk. Remove excess water with a towel and leave to dry in the shade. Direct exposure to the sun can fade colours and deteriorate the fibre.

3. Proper Storage

Store your silk pieces in a cool, dry place away from direct sunlight. Use cotton or acid-free tissue paper covers to protect them from dust and moisture. Avoid hanging the pieces to prevent warping.

4. Ironing

If you need to iron silk, iron at a low temperature and place a cloth between the iron and the silk to avoid direct contact. Iron when it is still slightly damp for best results.

5. Professional Care

For difficult stains or deep cleaning, consider taking your pieces to a professional silk cleaner. This will ensure that the right methods and products are used to maintain the integrity of the fabric and paintwork.

6. Damage Prevention

Avoid contact of the silk with perfumes, lotions and other chemicals that may damage the colours and fibre. If you are going to use accessories such as jewellery, make sure that they do not rub continuously against the silk to avoid tearing.
