How to care for your vintage clothing 

To get the most out of your vintage clothing caring for them is essential. With a little love and the right care, our vintage garments will be worn for generations to come!

Storing vintage clothes

  • Do not store vintage items in plastic, the fabric need to breath
  • Fold fragile knits, beaded items and silks instead of hanging them
  • Use padded or wooden hangers
  • hang up vintage garments to dry out perspiration instead of leaving them in a hamper until wash day
  • Store your vintage garment in a dry, dust free place away from direct sunlight to avoid fading and deteriorationn of fabric.

Washing vintage clothes

  • Read the care label and follow the washing instructions when available
  • Hand wash or dry clean anything without instructions. If a garment is delicate airing will often remove odour without washing
  • Check for damage before washing, and mend before you wash
  • Always hand wash or dry clean silk, wool, velvet and any garment with beading. Please make sure your dry cleaner is experienced in vintage fabrics.
  • Let your vintage garment air dry, do not put in the dryer
