If you’re an admirer of Karuna Khaitan garments, the likelihood is you recognize the worth of quality and longevity. You’re willing to travel that tiny further mile for garments which will last you years to come back rather than choosing fast-fashion clothes that will deteriorate after a few washes and wears and is additionally mayhem to the planet.
The secret spice to the creation of our garments is that we use lightweight biodegradable fibers and fabrics for their sturdiness, flexibility, and easy to care quality. However, that doesn’t mean that the ultra-sustainable fabric is indestructible. Regardless of any price tag or fabric content, the way we care for our garments plays a critical role and even clothes that are built to last will inevitably come to an end if we don’t look after them properly.
Here are a few ways to ensure your Karuna Khaitan garments last as long as possible, especially sustaining in the summers, so you can look as good as you feel -
Wash Your Weaves With Care
One should restrain from washing their garments too often and too harshly. Washing your garments, despite how delicate the cycle, naturally breaks down the fibers a little bit every time. Therefore we advise drying your Karuna Khaitan pieces in the shade, doing so also helps the colour and smoothness to stay longer. Our website mentions the instructions for washing every single garment, whether it's hand wash or dry clean.
The Way You Store Says It All
Hanging your garments on metal hangers is a straightaway no-no! The best option here is to store them in a cool, dry place folded in an absorbent fabric bag to allow circulation of air and avoid any pungent smell. Silica gel bags can also be used to avoid humidity and prevent fungal growth on your Chanderi pieces.
Retaining The Lustre
It’s a common trade for your garments to lose their shine over time. The key here is to treat the fine fibers from time to time to avoid losing their lustre forever. Wash in one-fourth cup of distilled white vinegar mixed with one gallon of water to help regain the lost shine of a garment. This is a good old-wives technique to retain the shine of your garments but make sure to always read the care labels before experimenting with anything.
Ironing it Out Right
The delicate fabric of your ethnic weaves means that the wrinkling of material after every wash will wreak havoc on its fibers and leave behind permanent creases on your beloved pieces. When trying to ease out these wrinkles, make sure you simply steam the required area to smoothen out the creases. If a steamer isn’t readily available, you can also iron your garments inside out on the lowest heat setting to take away the creases.
Before you rush to try any home hacks, always make sure your garments don’t have any ‘Dry Clean Only’ sign specified label. If that’s the case, it’s better to entrust the task to your trusted local laundry person. Another key tip is to always stick to cold or lukewarm water if you don’t want to see your favourite Karuna Khaitan pieces become a victim of instant shrinkage.
Looking great in your outfits is cool and stuff, but so is caring properly for them. Karuna Khaitan garments are sustainably produced keeping in mind the easily manageable factor which would take only minimal but the right effort from you.
