Care instructions for lotus silk
Preferably hang your lotus scarf to air. You will notice it will not need a lot of washing. If you would like to wash your lotus scarf though, consider the following:
- Hand wash separately in cool water;
- Use only a drop of very mild soap;
- Do not leave your scarf soaking;
- Remove any excess water carefully, do not wring out or twist the scarf;
- Leave the scarf to dry in a flat position;
- Avoid direct sunlight when drying;
- Do not use a tumble dryer;
- Use iron on silk programme and iron the scarf when still moist.
Of course you can also take your silk scarf to the dry cleaner.
Our naturally dyed lotus silk scarves are coloured by hand. This means the scarf might lose some dye when washed for the first time.
Note: let perfume and hairspray dry before you wrap the scarf around your neck. Alcohol can stain or damaged the lotus fibre.
This information does not offer any guarantees. However, we know from experience that if you handle your lotus silk scarf with care, you will enjoy it for a long time.
