Care for Me
HAND WASH - for a lovely shine and no toxic residue:
Using delicate fabric handwash mix with room temperature water in a clean sink. Swish the fabric around for 5 minutes. Keep moving the fabric in the water so colours don’t transfer to other areas. For any stains use washing up liquid in that area,but try not to rub too hard as this can weaken or pull the yarns.
RINSE AND SOFTEN
Gently lift and softly press the fabric together to remove excess water (don’t squeeze or twist) then place in a bowl of cool/room temp water to rinse. When it comes to rinsing, add three tablespoons of white distilled vinegar. This will remove traces of the detergent and also restore the fabric’s natural shine. Don’t worry the smell will vanish when the piece dries. Alternatively rinse in just water and repeat process with a delicates softener.
Gently lift and softly press the fabric together to remove excess water. On a hanger, attach a folded towel (with safety pins), acting as a body for which the water will be absorbed. This also prevents any colours transferring from one area to another (check no part of the fabric is touching another). It will dry within 3 hours if in a well-ventilated room.
DRY CLEAN - 85% of dry cleaners use a toxic chemical called perc, that’s linked to respiratory issues, birth defects and air pollution. In the UK it is advised against childrenswear being dry cleaned – scary! Green and organic cleaners exist. If you have no option, ask your drycleaner to consider green processes, they often cost less and by asking you are showing them their market is changing, they should too.
Use a steam iron, on a piece of clean white cotton. Iron on the wrong side with a low heat.
Were trying to be pretty mindful, so here’s how these pieces come to life-
Our sustainability lies in our 'Triple Sustainable' process. As our customer, your purchases help reduce the production of new materials, reduce textile waste, as well as supporting a small business that supports a fair-work place.
We bypass the fabric making, dying, etc. process (along with the social & environmental issues that come with them) by ethically sourcing existing silk fabrics.
Each fabric is selected for their colour compositions & artistic prints and created by our local, fairly paid team of seamstresses.
We can have this altered to fit you perfectly! We would recommend trying on the dress before hand - and using local alteration places for adjustments.
However we can do in house, see options below:
Re-hem to your length - £15
Re-do strap length - £5
Resize to lower size - £25
This can take a week, please understand it will delay delivery.
Investing in handmade, unique piece of clothing is highly valuable. Especially when the fabrics are already historic.
Each We-Resonate piece has a unique number, traceable as part of our archive. This tracks its history and extends its story into the future
We-Resonate offer a buy-back scheme, please get in touch to discuss!
Honesty is a big part of our brand policy.
The fabrics used are pre 1970s, that’s almost 50 years old.
Their high quality means they’ve stood the test of time. However, due to their age, small imperfections or colour differences can be seen on the fabrics. We have a tolerance level so no noticeable imperfections are used. We carefully patch these areas, and supply patches to be simply ironed on in the future.
We can only say, show these pieces care and love (whilst having fun) and they’ll last you many lifetimes.
