We really love silk: silk shantung & tafetta, Chantilly lace, silk veils and tulles... Silk is precious, natural and really beautifull... In manufacturing our clothes, we especially use natural fabrics, such as natural silk and cotton, but also synthetic fibers such as polyester tulle and lace, rayon velvet, etc. Synthetic materials are used because they are beautiful and generally cannot be excluded from a formal dress, be it for children.
However, clothes are designed such as synthetic materials do not come into contact with the baby's skin. Therefore, all our clothes are lined with different types of simple cotton canvas or silk blend. Lining can be lighter or heavier depending on season and model.
Additionally, we seek to choose soft fabrics that are skin friendly, yet beautiful enough for a special occasion outfit for children.

One of the main basic fabrics that we use is a natural silk fabric called silk shantung, taffeta or dupioni silk, which is a bit rough, sometimes with threads or small knots, slightly darker in color. The rough aspect, as well as the darker threads inserted in the fabric are not considered flaws, but a special trait of this very elegant fabric (especially used for wedding dresses and evening outfits).

Silk Santung Dupioni 


Even if the Petite Coco clothes are created for very young children, they must be treated just like an evening dress or a very elegant, thus delicate, outfit.
Therefore, you should not wash them before the event, because they can change their aspect and washing is not necessary. To protect your baby's skin, all the clothes and christening layette items that come into contact with children's skin, as well as the storage clothes covers are disinfected by high temperature steam ironing.

For cleaning the clothes after the event, we recommend you to turn to a professional cleaning center (dry clean) that knows how to wash evening gowns and other fine attires, such as silk outfits.

If you want to clean your clothes at home, you should hand wash them in cold water, at temperatures below 30 degrees, without rubbing or wringing them out. Do not forget to check out the product label for cleaning instructions.
Hanger drying is recommended (except knitted pieces that should dry on a flat surface), at room temperature, avoiding heat sources or too much light, as certain fabrics, such as silk, can stain or discolor.

Other instructions:
1. We recommend not to use the washing machine or temperatures above 30 degrees! Fabrics can crease so much that they cannot be ironed or they can discolor.
2. Before using a particular cleaning product, make a test on an area that is not visible.
3. In case of staining, immediately clean the garment because stains can become permanent.
4. We also remind you that some stains cannot be removed by washing.
One of the most used fabrics in our collections is the silk shantung (taffeta - dupioni silk), which can remain slightly tousled after washing and ironing.

After wearing a garment, stains can appear in areas where it has come into contact with the baby's skin (due to sweat). Therefore, if you want to preserve the outfit, we recommend to clean it beforehand (as mentioned before, preferably in a professional bleachery - dry clean).
After it has dried completely and after ironing and cooling, the outfit should be kept in the original cover and protected from light. The clothes kept in light can change color over time.
