  • Care for Me

    HAND WASH - for a lovely shine and no toxic residue:

     

    WASH

    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.

     

    TO DRY

    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 fabric is touching eachother). It will dry within 3 hours if in a well-ventilated, ambient 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.

     

    TO DECREASE

    Use a steam iron, on a piece of clean white cotton. Iron on the wrong side with a low heat.

  • My Story

    We are a conscious brand with ethical motivations and mindful aspirations, we begin here:

     

    1. Each fabric is hand selected for their colour compositions & artistic prints and created by our small, fairly paid team of seamstresses.

     

    2. We bypass the fabric making, dying, etc. process (along with the social & environmental issues that come with them) by ethically sourcing existing silk fabrics.

     

    3. We are 'Triple Sustainable' each purchase:

    • Reduces the production of new materials, 
    • Reduces textile waste, 
    • Supports a small business that supports a fair-work place.
  • Customise

    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.

     

    We can also do in house, see options below:

    Resize to lower size - £25

    Re-hem to your length - £20 

    Re-do strap length - £5

    We can do alterations as quickly as possible but this can take time if during a busy period, please let us know the urgency.

  • Investment

    The value of a locally handmade, unique piece of clothing, made from historic fabrics is a soulful and quality investment.

     

    Each We-Resonate piece has a unique number on it's label, like a limited addition print, but this is an original. With this number we track its history and extend its story into the future. The piece is forever a part of the We-Resonate archive online, showing the date, who brought it and who made it to future owners.

     

    We-Resonate offer a buy back scheme so please get in touch.

  • Imperfections

    Honesty is a big part of our brand policy.

     

    The fabrics used are mostly over 30 years old.

     

    The are selected for theiir high quality and strength. However, due to their age, small imperfections or colour differences can be seen on the fabrics. We have a tolerance level as we believe these minor imperfections also bring beauty and history to the piece.

     

    We can only say, show these pieces care and love (whilst having fun) and they’ll last you many lifetimes.
