Silk Care Tips

Silk, a natural protein fiber, is an eco-friendly fabric, but it requires careful maintenance to last longer and radiate its unique charm. So, do you know how to wash and care for silk properly?


Hand Washing:

Silk is best washed by hand. Soak the garment in cold water for 5 to 10 minutes, then add silk-specific detergent, gently rub and knead, and rinse thoroughly in clear water. Avoid washing with water above 30 degrees and do not soak it after using detergent.

Air Drying:

After washing, lay the silk garment flat in a cool, shaded area to dry. Avoid exposing it to direct sunlight, as UV rays can cause silk fabric to yellow, fade, and age. Avoid using a dryer.


Iron silk clothing on the reverse side. When ironing, let the garment air-dry to about 70%, then evenly mist it with water. Wait 3 to 5 minutes before ironing, and keep the ironing temperature below 150°C. Do not directly touch the silk surface with the iron to avoid a glossy appearance.


Store the garment after ironing to prevent mold and moth damage. When storing daily, make sure to place it in a dark area. Silk clothing has strong moisture absorption, so it's best to hang it on a hanger and keep it ventilated when not in use.


Avoid rubbing silk clothing against rough objects to prevent snags. Do not use perfume, as chemicals can damage silk, causing the fabric to yellow.
