You may find the idea of travelling with silk daunting but the truth is it is much easier to care for than you could imagine. Whether you’re heading for a weekend getaway or holiday abroad, your favourite silk pieces will effortlessly take you from wandering the streets in the day to sipping champagne at night.
“FOLLOW OUR SIMPLE SEVEN STEPS ON HOW TO TRAVEL WITH YOUR SILK TO ENSURE YOUR FAVOURITE PIECES ARRIVE SAFE AND SOUND AT YOUR DESTINATION…”
+ STEP ONE: BEGINNING
Pack your suitcase, leaving room for your silk garments
First thing is first, you’ll need to pack your suitcase. Place everything inside as you usually would, ensuring you leave a small space for your silk garments.
+ STEP TWO: FOLDING
Start by laying the first silk garment on your bed. Fold in any long sleeves or hems until the garment is in a perfect square. Repeat this process until all of your garments have been folded.
+ STEP THREE: ROLLING
Once you have folded all of your garments into neat squares, roll each item into the shape of a sleeping bag. This won’t apply if you have a large silk robe. In this case, hang the item inside a garment bag and place it on top of your packed items. Using a garment bag will keep your suitcase organised and ensure the item doesn’t catch on any material.
+ STEP FOUR: PACKING
Carefully place your sleeping bag-shaped garments into your **GF Satin Storage Bag** and pop it in your suitcase. For extra protection, slide a few sheets of clear tissue paper in between each garment.
+ STEP FIVE: UNFOLDING
Once you have arrived at your destination, delicately unpack your silk garemnts from the GF Silk Storage bag and unfold each of your items and remove any tissue paper.
+ STEP SIX: HANGING
Hang each item on individual hangers.
+ STEP SEVEN: BLOW DRY
Using a hair dryer on warm setting, carefully blow dry any creases or wrinkles out of the garment.
