Silk care

The pieces that I make are made of 100% natural silk and hand-dyed with plants.

Silk is a luxury product with various benefits for health and well-being. Silk fiber has the advantage of being extremely soft, light, supple and absorbent. Using silk as the main material of bed linen can increase the quality of sleep and benefit health.

Natural silk is an organic material. It is naturally hypoallergenic and antibacterial. It is suitable for people with skin irritations, suffering from allergies and asthma or excessive sweating.

Silk is also thermoregulatory. It will keep you warm in winter and cool you in summer.

Silk contains 18 amino acids and natural proteins that nourish your skin and hair. Hair loss, breakage and disheveled hair as well as facial wrinkles will be significantly reduced.

Hand wash in cold water with a mild pH neutral soap, or machine wash on a delicate cycle.

Do not wring, roll it in a terry towel, and lay it flat.

Iron damp.

Some colors may fade slightly with wear, as natural dyes change over time, particularly if exposed to sunlight for long periods.

Keep your silk in a drawer or closet if you want to avoid this as much as possible.

Avoid contact with beauty products which could cause an unpredictable reaction with natural dyes and change the color of the silk.

How to dry your flowers for the immortalized bouquet?

Remove all leaves from flower stems and keep them. Then, separate the flowers by species and make bunches of no more than ten flowers. Tie them with an elastic band for example. Be careful not to overtighten the bunches of flowers as this could create a pocket of water at the base of the stems which could rot during the process. For large flowers, such as hydrangeas or roses, you must dry them individually.

Hang the bunches of flowers upside down in a warm, dry, dark place (light may alter the color). Ideally under the ceiling, choose a ventilated room which will help the flowers dry and avoid any risk of rotting.

You will have to wait between 2 to 5 weeks depending on the size of the petals and the drying conditions for them to be completely ready. Stems and flowers should be crisp to the touch.
