Where we use it:

SATIN

Fabric Description: Known for its luxurious and smooth draping qualities Satin is not only a fabric but a weave pattern made using filament fibers from silk, nylon, polyester, or a blend.   Originating in 12th century China, Arab merchants came to know the city by the distinct fabric it produced, “Zayton”, as they called it.  While it does not breathe as well as natural silk the effect of the fabric is very much similar.  Reach for  a satin accessory when looking to add timeless elegance and soft luxuriousness to your look. 

 

Garment Care: Hand wash in cold water and rinse well. Instead of wringing dry, lay flat and press 

water out of fabric.

Where we use it:

VELVET


Velvet. If the name alone conjures decadent images of chocolate and champagne, that is because the name has become synonymous with luxury and refinement. If you are looking to top off an ensemble with unrestrained elegance, then choose velvet for a rich, butter smooth finish with slight stretch.


Garment Care: To maintain this lux material, if washing at home, we recommend  hand washing with mild soap, then air dry or simply drop it off at your local dry cleaner. 



Where we use it:

BOGOLAN

Bogolanfini, with a name which loosely translates to “cloth by means of earth”, these distinctive prints are all handmade and as distinct as the hands that made them. Indigenous to Mali, the unique textile designs are traditionally created using mud and baths of leaves and assorted plants, then left to dry. Although modern methods may vary, the beauty of the artistry remains unparalleled. Due to the dye process, expect each print will vary slightly. Smudges and bleeding may occur as part of the natural dying process, we hope you welcome these subtle imperfections as character, unique to every print as to every individual. 

Garment Care: Hand wash in cold water, or machine wash on cold with similar colors; hang to dry. Iron on the opposite side of the pattern.
