How do I care for Elizabeth Few Collection pieces?
Each piece is unique and therefore the care instructions will be noted on all. Whenever possible, we suggest delicate hand washing and spot cleaning. However, that is not always appropriate for certain fabrics. Some of our pieces are "Dry clean only" and we highly recommend organic or green dry cleaners, because they use water as the solvent and not toxic chemicals. Invest in a good steamer and go green when you dry clean!
Is silk a sustainable fabric?
Sericulture (cultivation of silkworms to produce silk) has limited environmental impact . The production of silk fibers from the cocoons requires nothing more than boiling water (or steam). It is a low-tech industry with no chemicals or high-tech engineering required in the process and therefore has almost zero energy footprint and satisfies most guidelines for sustainable fabric production. Silk is one of the strongest natural fibers, therefore our products made from silk will stand the test of time and eventually, will biodegrade.
