Chantilly lace is a handmade bobbin lace named after the city of Chantilly, France, in a tradition dating from the 17th century. Lace is a textile displaying openwork, obtained through the intersection of threads that form motifs linked by a ground. Chantilly lace remained popular since 19th century for its classic and timeless style.
How to wash:
Hand wash in warm water use a mild, pH neutral cleanser. Use a gentle plunging action and avoid rubbing. Do not hand wring or tumble dry. Dry out of direct sunlight (dry lace flat). To avoid dye transferring to other garments, always wash them separately
To maintain your garments original color, we recommend drying your garment inside your home rather than outdoors. If you are line drying outside, please do so in a shady area.
Iron on a cool setting if necessary, although it’s best to avoid ironing lace if possible.
We always recommend dry clean or hand wash lace garments, but when washing lace and other delicate garments in the washing machine, always follow the machine manufacturers’ instructions and use the delicate or gentle cycle. To minimise the risk of damage to your delicate garments, always place them in a laundry bag when laundering in the washing machine.
When in doubt, dry clean. There are an increasing number of environmentally conscious dry cleaning facilities available now. We highly recommend seeking out and supporting these establishments!
