Correct care will insure that your Mainie silk garment will last for many years.
It is recommended that your silk garment should be dry-cleaned only. However, if you must wash your silk garment, it should be hand washed in lukewarm water using only a small amount of mild detergent or shampoo. Do not wring. Lay the garment flat to dry. Do not spin dry and tumble dry your silk garment.
Other important things to remember when caring for your Mainie silk garment:
Never spray silk with perfume or deodorant
Never use bleach or harsh detergents
Never expose silk to direct sunlight for long periods of time
Never spray silk with water while ironing
Always iron the backside of your silk garment with the iron set to the SILK setting
We hope you will love wearing your Mainie garment as much as we loved creating it.
Please note that your Mainie garment has its own distinctive characteristics.
The highly specialised techniques applied by the artisan silk-makers to produce our fine fabrics, and the traditional methods used by the Aboriginal artists to create the Dreamtime print designs, make each Mainie garment truly exceptional.
We have taken great care to ensure that the design on the fabric is printed in a way which captures the hand-painted look and feel of the original artwork.
And because each of our garments have handmade touches, no two are identical. Each one has unique and subtle differences which mean that your garment is as individual as you are.
At Mainie we pride ourselves on the depth and vibrancy of our digitally printed, authentic Aboriginal Dreamtime designs. However, please note that due to the different screen resolutions on electronic devices, colours may vary between the screen image and the actual garment.
