Wash & Care Guide:
We recommend, especially if you are re-selling, to pre-wash in hot water before dyeing or painting to remove any leftover residue from the silk worms (Seracin) or finger prints and other stuff that can cause the fabric to dye unevenly. If painted/dyed follow instructions of paint/dyestuffs used for future washing.
It's worth noting:
While every care has been taken to ensure the accuracy of the colours depicted in our images, please be aware that due to monitor resolution, lighting, photo processing software and other factors it is almost impossible to represent colour to 100% accuracy.
