Fabric Care Instructions

How to care for your fabric


Our fabric is special and needs to be cared for correctly. Our guidelines are here to help you care for your beautiful new fabrics. We recommend that you prewash any fabrics made from natural fibres as some shrinkage may occur in the same way you plan to wash and dry your future creation. Wash bright and light colours separately as some colours may run in the first few times they are washed. 

Please note, these care instructions are guidelines only and variations will apply to some fabrics. For fabrics such as sequins, beaded, coated, foiled fabrics and delicate items special washing instructions will apply. If you have any questions please contact us. We recommend that you follow our fabric prewash and care instruction guidelines as outlined below as we are unable to accept claims on fabrics which have been laundered incorrectly.

Dry clean only. It may be hand washed at your own risk, we would recommend a cold, gentle hand wash, using a silk friendly detergent. Do not bleach or tumble dry. If handwashing, dry in the shade. If needed use a warm iron.


Cold machine wash. Do not bleach. Maybe tumble dried at a low temperature. Cool iron. Dry cleanable.




Dry clean only. Do not spot clean. Never iron, iron is likely to flatten the velvet's natural pile. A handheld steamer can be used, with extreme care to remove creasing. Alternately, your fabric/garment may be hung in a steamy room, as the steam helps the creases relax. We recommend velvet be stored rolled not folded. Do not use clip hangers as these will mark the fabric.  


Dryclean only.
