Care Instructions - Bordelle

Bordelle products must be hand washed. These garments are all crafted by hand either in our London based Atelier or with leading lingerie producers in Europe. Our collections are made by combining Bordelle's customised elastic bands with an array of the highest couture laces, Swarovski crystals, gold plated accessories and silk satin.

Special care must be taken when washing garments made from silk. These must be hand washed separately in cold water using mild detergent or soap flakes. Pay special attention to rings and finger nails as these fabrics are very delicate. After repeated cleaning silk fabrics might experience a slight loss of lustre. This is characteristic of the natural fabric. Machine washed garments may become damaged or discoloured. 

Leather and Perspex accessories can be wiped clean with a soft, dry cloth. Special care must be taken with nude leather pieces. This is untreated leather and may mark if it comes into contact with liquids.

Girdles made entirely out of silky elastic bands can appear crinkled after hand washing but this does not affect the appearance of the garments when worn. Cups made from elastic panelling can be steamed back into shape if crinkled after hand washing.

Items containing delicate laces, tulle and Swarovski crystal attachments require specialist dry cleaning. Hand washed garments must be dried flat, no wringing, dried and stored away from direct sunlight or heat.
