Created from handwoven mulberry silk by our partners at Maithong Suranaree Co-operative, the Cleo Mini Dress supports silk farmers and rural weaving artisans with every order.
The weft yarns are homemade or known among Thais as Mai Baan, which is locally grown by rural villagers and then hand-reeled in order to create a subtle texture that differs on every dress. The warp yarns are ethically sourced from the most trustworthy silk producer in Thailand, Chul Thai Silk, whose work is to support over 2000 Mulberry silk farmers.
To ensure your sustainable silk retains its charm and beauty for many years to come, we recommend the following:
Take care to avoid extreme heat and direct sunlight when storing the product as this may cause colour fading and/or shrinkage. We recommend storing the product in a cool, shaded and dry place at all times.
Dry-clean only. Wear more, clean less! Iron inside out on a low heat.
As with all hand-dyed products, some colour variation within and between items is normal. Hand-dyed products may bleed slightly when wet, so please follow cleaning instructions carefully.
Please note, all fabrics woven by hand may come with small knots, yarn pulls or short pieces of thread – these irregularities do not affect the quality or future durability of the product. They act as an authenticity mark of fabric woven by hand and adds to the uniqueness and individualism of our products.
