Our Fabric

Our Fabric

Each Wustler® piece embodies silky soft comfort, drapes beautifully with gorgeous sheen, is breathable & lightweight. The magic is in our signature Wustler silky fabric blend of Rayon & Viscose, which are regenerated cellulose fibre made from wood pulp. Our fabric has been selected & handpicked for their hand feel, quality and breathability. All of our fabrics go through fabric lab tests to ensure the requirements of great quality are met. On top of this, we only use non-toxic and environmentally friendly fabric dyes.

Simply put, we focused on offering something better than most satin in the market, yet much more wallet-friendly than silk, and specifically avoided using synthetics such as polyester, nylon etc. Our signature Wustler™ silky fabric blend is more breathable on the skin compared to most satin and has silk-like properties. Our signature fabric also tends to crease when worn, however this is perfectly normal due to the fabric properties of Rayon & Viscose. We truly take pride in our signature Wustler silky fabric, but we will always strive for continuous improvements and are constantly searching for even better fabric blends which are kinder to earth.

 

Fabric Care     

Please read our care label carefully and treat your Wustler® pieces with extra love & care.

We recommend hand-washing as the best and safest method, and if you must machine-wash, do turn your garment inside out and put it in a mesh laundry bag. We are machine-washable for your convenience but please wash your garment with water at or below 30°C on the delicate cycle with a low spin cycle. Please avoid the dryer as our fabric is made from wood fibres and can shrink in high heat. Air-drying our pieces helps keep the fabric stronger & more long-lasting, and avoids shrinkage of the fabric and other components.

Please take note not to twist or wring the fabric when it is still wet but to use a towel or any other absorbent cloth to remove excess water, if required. Gently pull and shape the garment back to its original shape as it begins drying, and smoothen out some wrinkles by hand when the pieces are still wet. Next, allow the pieces to air-dry flat or hang to drip-dry ideally. 

Our signature fabric reacts like paper when wet which in turn causes wrinkles after washing - however they iron beautifully & easily. It is extremely important to iron your Wustler® pieces(both right & wrong sides) at low/medium heat or a quick steam for them to look & feel their best, they also iron best when the fabric is slightly damp. Due to the nature & properties of our delicate fabric, extra care is required to ensure your garments will stay in perfect shape & to look their very best for longer.
