Here's how to increase the life of your bridal outfit.


Dry clean

: Dry cleaning works best for the bridal sarees and lehengas because it increases their durability. Washing makes the silk fabrics lose some of their stiffness, and the colours soften as the excess dye is washed away.


Iron safely

: While ironing silk garments, keep in mind to place a piece of light fabric on the ironing surface so that it absorbs excess heat from the iron. It ensures that there is no more than negligible harm to the garment.


Wrap well

: Wrap the bridal outfit in an acid-free tissue paper while storing to ensure that the zari embroidery remains as it is and not get darker over time.
