Maintenance Tips Of Double Ikat Saree

Caring for your ikat saree is essential to preserve its beauty and longevity. Silk sarees long for 40-50 years. Here are some valuable tips to ensure your saree stays as stunning as the day you first draped it:

Washing

  • Silk sarees should not be washed to maintain their luxurious sheen. Instead, it’s advisable to air them out annually by unfolding and placing them under a sunshade for an hour or two.
  • For any stains on the silk saree, you can give it to a dry cleaning store nearby.

Ironing

  • Use a low to medium heat setting for ironing to avoid damaging the silk fibers.
  • Before ironing, place a thin cotton cloth over the saree to protect the delicate embroidery.
  • Iron the saree on the reverse side to maintain the intricacy of the zari work.

Storage:

Ikat cotton sarees require no special storage solutions. It is best to keep them in a cool, dry place, well protected from moisture and humidity to preserve their vibrant colors and delicate fabric.

  • Store your ikat silk saree in a cool, dry place away from direct sunlight and moisture.
  • Use muslin or cotton cloth to wrap the saree to allow the fabric to breathe.
