Caring for silk
Professional Dry Cleaning is recommended for silk scarves.
Ensure your Mantua Silk scarf is stored neatly rolled up in the silk pouch it is sold in. If hung, make sure the fabric is not pinched, hooked or torn. Avoid drawers or cupboards with rough surfaces that could cause damage. Silk is sensitive to light and should be stored in a dry, dark cupboard. Ensure cupboard is free of clothes moths, as insects are drawn to natural fibers.
- spray silk with perfume or deodorant
- bleach silk
- expose silk to direct sunlight for longer periods of time
- spray silk with water while ironing
- treat individual stains with water
- iron the frontside
If cared for properly, a silk scarf can last a lifetime as it is one of the most durable natural fibres known.
