Our products are timeless, designed to last for years of enjoyment and to be passed down through generations. Please treat your Shaku scarf with love and follow our guide to properly care for your scarf.
We recommend that all our scarfs are dry cleaned only.
Silk is a natural and delicate protein fibre and any substances containing alcohol will damage the fabric. Allow any perfume or hairspray to dry completely before wearing your scarf.
Please be aware that it is typical for lightening or even darkening of the colour of silk scarves to occur.
Try to avoid contact with any abrasive surfaces that may cause your silk scarf to snag.
Avoid any contact with water to prevent shrinkage. Wash only with a specialist cashmere dry cleaners.
Do not rub as this will cause fibre distortion.
If you experience pilling, a cashmere comb can be used to remove any small surface pills.
We hope you can understand that Shaku cannot assume responsibility for the eventual deterioration or mishandling of the product.
Of course you can! We are open 9.30am to 5.30pm, Monday through to Friday.
