Our digitally printed sateen is a standard mid weight which we used for all our sateen base dresses and skirts, comprising of 97% cotton, 3% stretch. Valentina is generally always made in this weight of fabric, which is substantial enough to have good drape and stretch, but is also light enough to be worn in summer. Style also using this fabric include Ruby Dress, Jessie Dress (digital prints) and Trixie Dress (botanist). Our Midi Length Valentina is a Linen base or 100% cotton Drill when screen printed in the longer length (eg: Pets Paradise, Folk Floral, Lucky 13).
Always follow specific care instructions on inner tag for each garment. As a general rule for our printed cotton sateen pieces, we recommend cold machine wash, inside out, delicate cycle (in a delicates bag if you have one) with a mild detergent free of sulphates (eg: Earth Care wash, not OMO or strong detergents). Do not bleach, tumble dry or dry clean. Do not iron directly on print (screen prints - warm iron on reverse) and mid iron setting on sateen. This will ensure the longevity of the print and mean you can wear them for a long time. A delicates bag will mean the fabric gets less rubbed against other items and will wear more evenly in the wash.
