SILK:

The products of this fabric need to be professionally dry cleaned only. It can be given for petrol wash too. Do not hand wash or machine wash strictly. Do not use any soaps or detergents for this product. Like all fibres, silk is prone to fading and discolouration.

To preserve the lustre of silk sarees, store these sarees by wrapping them in a muslin cloth. Refold these sarees from time to time to avoid fading on the creases. Store in cool and dry places to avoid discolouration. Steam ironing is preferable for silk. A natural fading process may occur over time and is dependent upon the usage and garment care.

In case you need to wash the garment and cannot avoid the situation then wash it with a mild detergent in cold water. Do not twist or wring dry the garment. The saree would be washed at your own risk. We do not undertake any guarantee of the colour, cloth or zari.

COTTON:

The products of this fabric can be easily laundered. Cotton fibres are strong in comparison to other fabric and hence the garments made from this fabric do not easily wear out. The cotton fabric must be treated with starch in order to retain the shine and colour and to keep it wrinkle-free. Do not expose the garment to the hot sun. do not hang them, instead keep them folded.

Dry cleaning would be enough for garments made out of cotton fabric, petrol wash isn’t necessary. Cotton can be ironed using normal irons or steam irons.
