Most of our items are 100% silk and we strongly recommend you to DRY CLEAN the item. Silk is a very delicate fabric and normal wash may change the texture and sheen of the fabric.
Silk can get wrinkled if it is left folded for a longer period, and therefore the item may have some wrinkles when you receive it. You can however easily remove these with ironing. Make sure to set the iron to a low temperature and press it down on the fabric from the backside with a piece of thin cotton (e.g. handkerchief) in between to prevent direct heat on the silk.
Items made with Obi are NOT made to be washed.
We will also include detailed care instructions with your purchased item.
