Care Instruction for Your Silk Ribbon
TIEING A FLOWER BOUQUET
When you are using your ribbon to tie a flower bouquet, please make sure that the stem is dry. Wet stem may impart colours onto the ribbon and the stain might be difficult to remove. Also take care that the ribbon doesn't get in touch with water containing flower food, as it is a chemical which can stain the ribbon and shift natural colours.
Floral green tape may impart colour to the silk ribbon. If you use green tape, it is advisable to cover it with twine or scotch tape to prevent colour transfer to the ribbon.
WASHING & IRONING
It is not advisable to wash the ribbon because some colours might be affected by the acidity or alkalinity of the soap and water used. Should you need to wash your ribbon, we recommend to gently handwash it in tepid water using a gentle pH-neutral soap and air dry out of direct sunlight. Natural colours may shift in shades when encountering drastic change in pH or added chemical.
You can iron your ribbon using dry iron on the silk (low - medium) setting. Upon air-drying, the silk fabric might feel stiff. You can give it a gentle scrunch to fluff it and make it soft again.
For crinkle silk ribbon, due to it is being very delicate, it is not advisable to wash and iron the ribbon to preserve its shape and texture.
STORING YOUR SILK RIBBON
Please note that fading is a characteristic of colours on fabric, be it natural and sometimes even synthetic colours. In naturally dyed products, nature gives us living colours, over time the colour might shift or fade. It is recommended to approach this phenomena by embracing the beauty in each of their life phases. Storing the ribbons in a dark place or out of bright light or direct sunlight will help the colour shift happens in a slower pace.
