We really want to ensure a long and healthy life for your Natasha Gan pieces, and overall, you can't beat a gentle hand wash with mild detergent in warm water.
If you can dry them flat in the shade, even better - it's what we recommend for all our pieces.
Sometimes this isn't always possible, so we've put together some more basic care information for you below.
For best results use a liquid product designed for hand washable or delicate garments. Please make sure that the garment is completely dissolved in cool water. Immerse the garment and gently wash. Never rub or soak garments. Treat stains as soon as possible prior to laundering using a stain remover, which has been tested on the garment in hidden area. Rinse the garment thoroughly in cool water.
When machine washing your garments use only the gentle cycle. Follow the directions on your laundry product. If the label states 'Drip Dry' then remove the garment before the spin cycle.
For special garments, when dry cleaning is recommended, locate your closest reputable dry cleaner. Always dry clean both pieces of a suit together as treating one piece differently may lead to slight colour variations. If you have removed the care label from the garment for wearing ease, please take it with you so that the dry cleaner is aware of all the manufacturers’ instructions and warnings.
Some fabrics require a cool iron so in these cases it may be easier to handle if drip dried. Most fabrics and especially knitwear should not be dried in direct sunlight as it will fade and age your garment prematurely. Do not tumble dry your garments.
Many black or dark coloured fabrics will shine if pressed too heavily. To avoid this, try pressing on the wrong side of the garment or using a pressing cloth above it. Fabrics with Nylon or Polyester should be treated with very cool iron, as these fibres when treated with heat can be damaged, causing tears in the fabric. Some fabrics will crinkle up when washed and these will have a message 'Press to resume size and shape' on the care label. For these fabrics use a warm iron, lots of steam and gently press the garment back to size. Press garments with surface effects or embroidery on the wrong side as this will retain the surface detail and give embroidery a raised appearance. Beading and sequins however should not be pressed unless advised on the care label that it is safe as some may be damaged by heat. Laces and trims also should be pressed with a cloth to avoid damage.
