Please find below some frequently asked questions. Should you not find an answer to your question here, please do not hesitate to contact me via email at email@example.com
Are the scarves made from 100% silk?
Yes. Only 100% silk is used to make the items.
Are the scarves and bow ties hand painted?
Yes. All accessories have been hand painted one by one, as they are unique and one-of-a-kind products. No screen printing or digital printing is used.
What does ‘Hand Rolled” mean?
The edges of the scarves are ‘hand rolled”. This means they were delicately sewn by hand instead of using a sewing machine to finish the hems.
Why is there no care label on the product?
A care label has not been attached to the products due to aesthetic disadvantages. Every product comes with composition and care instructions on a separate card, please keep this card as a future reference.
Can I iron my scarf or pocket square?
After you have folded, tied and worn it for a while, your silk scarf will naturally get wrinkles, and you may find that your scarf or pocket square requires ironing. Although fragile, silk is also a very strong material and it is fine to use an iron to remove any creases. Hanging your scarf overnight will help remove most of the wrinkles, but to remove stubborn ones, set the iron on the lowest position. If you are unsure about doing this yourself, please take your product to an experienced professional.
Can I wash my scarf or pocket square?
You can delicately hand wash your scarf. If you are not sure how to do this yourself, please take your product to an experienced professional. Do not dry-clean.
Can I wear my silk scarf year round?
Yes, you can wear silk scarves whatever the season and climate. Thanks to its natural temperature-regulating properties, it is an all-climate fabric. Silk is naturally warm and cozy in the winter and cool when temperatures rise. You can style the scarves differently and use them not only around the neck but also as headbands, bandanas, wristlets, or tied to your handbag. Also offered for colder climates and seasons are the pieces that are paired with different material shawls and fabrics to create more confortable and warmer pieces.
Why choose silk?
Silk is the Queen of Fabrics. Because of its natural protein structure, silk is the most hypoallergenic of all fabrics. Is is also an all-climate fabric, warm and cozy in winter and comfortably cool when temperatures rise. Its natural temperature-regulating properties give silk this paradoxical ability to cool and warm simultaneously. Silk garments thus outperform other fabrics in both summer and winter. Silk worn as a second layer warms without being bulky. Silk is highly absorbent and dries quickly. It can absorb up to 30% of its weight in moisture without feeling damp. Silk will absorb perspiration while letting your skin breathe. In spite of its delicate appearance, silk is relatively robust and its smooth surface resists soil and odors well. And while silk abrasion resistance is moderate, it is the strongest natural fiber and, surprisingly, it easily competes with steel yarn in tensile strength.
What makes my scarf or bow tie unique?
All of the scarves and bow ties have been hand painted personally one by one, as well as sewn by hand using artisanal methods, such as the hand-rolled hem quality finish.
