Delicate Trim

More and more garments that we see contain different types of specialty trim. This is not exclusive to evening gowns but can be seen on garments which range from ladies blouses to men’s jeans and various other items.

Before cleaning items with trim we can test for colorfastness and assess the durability of the trim.

Manufacturers care labels are normally the best guide however, we do see garments that are incorrectly care labelled and we will normally mask potentially delicate trims so that they withstand the cleaning process.

The following are classified as delicate trim and are processed with extreme caution:

  • Braid

  • Feathers

  • Fringe & Lace

  • Persian Lamb

  • Real Fur

  • Imitation Fur

  • Tassels

  • Vinyl
