How to take care of recycled silk
Recycled silk can be hand-washed at a cold temperature of no more than 30 degrees using a delicate detergent. Remove excess water by gently pressing the recycled silk garment with a towel and dry flat. To refresh your recycled silk garment, gently spray the garment with fabric spray to remove odor.
OpéraSPORT’s recycled silk is made from pre-consumer waste which comes from any excess material created during the steps of material- and product manufacturing, e.g. selvage from weaving, fabric from factory cutting rooms, or excess production and unsold items that normally be disposed of as waste. The used materials are then shredded back into fiber form and spun into renewed yarns. Our recycled silk is produced without harming silkworms and requires fewer resources to be produced.
