Silk & Satin Garments
Silk and satin garments occasionally have weaknesses that are not always apparent prior to dry cleaning. Even with the utmost care we give to these fabrics, some color loss or discoloration may occur if the garment was poorly dyed at the manufacturer.
Due to the fine denier used in most silk it has a natural tendency to shift. Because of this shifting, some splitting and/or discoloration may result, especially in certain areas such as elbow, underarm, collar, waist and seat.
In addition, some foods, beverages, and cosmetics may also cause splitting or leave permanent stains, or color change. Exposure to sunlight may also
cause some color loss.
Silks and satins are extremely fragile. Therefore, in time, besides the possible splitting, shifting, discoloration and loss of luster, some piling may occur.
