Wedding Veils

The wedding veil is a symbol of wedding and with its soft sheer fabrics give all the daintiness and romance to the bride. The veil fabrics, usually made by silk or nylon, have need to be handled with some care to avoid ripping or holes.

Once you receive your veil the best solution is to hang it up so can loose naturally the wrinkles formed during the trip. If remain some wrinkles can be removed with stem but pay attention to the hot iron that can damage the fabric or discolor it. 

If all this options are not possible you can hang next to the shower and leaving open the boiling water so the steam that will go up, smooth all the remaining wrinkles. But attention must be only in case of emergency because the water is very precious and is good to preserve it!

Veli da sposa

Il velo da sposa è uno dei simboli del matrimonio per eccellenza che con i suoi morbidi tessuti trasparenti donano delicatezza e romanticismo alla sposa. I veli, solitamente realizzati in seta o nylon, hanno bisogno di essere trattati con una certa cura per evitare strappi o buchi.

Una volta ricevuto il tuo velo la soluzione migliore è quella di appenderlo in alto con delle grucce per perdere naturalmente quelle pieghe che si possomo formare durante il viaggio. Se qualche piega rimane può essere rimossa usando il solo vapore del ferro da stiro, ma attenzione al ferro caldo che può danneggiare e scolorire il tessuto !

Se queste opzioni non sono possibili da realizzare si può appendere il velo accanto alla doccia e lasciando aperta l'acqua bollente in modo che il vapore, salendo, possa appianare tutte le restanti pieghe. Ma attenzione, deve essere effettuato solo in caso di emergenza, perché l'acqua è un bene prezioso che non va sprecato!

Fiori di seta

Tutti i fiori sono realizzati con leggeri tessuti di seta, tagliati e pressato a mano con ferri e strumenti Giapponesi per dare la particolare forma dei fiori che si trovano in natura. Per evitare stropicciature è bene tenerli lontano da acqua, umidità e senza schiacciarli per non danneggiare la loro forma.

Coroncine, Pettinini, Cinture, Gioielli

In generale, tutti gli accessori hanno una buona resistenza alla manipolazione ma una cura maggiore è necessaria per quelli che hanno cristalli per evitare la perdita di pietre.
