The tulle used in this garment was selected for its uniqueness. It was created on leavers machines by the last remaining English manufacturer, the same machines responsible for some of the world's most beautiful lace. These machines are antique and must be threaded and tensioned completely by hand. When the laces are taken from the loom, it is normal for areas to feature small faults that are later hand-repaired. Whilst this is not usually visible in busy floral patterns, it is entirely more evident in such a strictly regular hexagonal pattern. You may find small areas of your garment featuring these delicate hand repairs: these are not considered a fault, but instead a reminder of the extensive hand crafting that goes into this beautiful fabric. As with organic honeycomb, the lack of total perfection simply adds to its charm.
Hand wash with care in cool water. Do not dry over a heat source.
