Veils sometimes wrinkle during shipping. Gently steam your veil to reshape.

Hats should be stored in boxes, never hung on walls or sat on shelves, where they collect dust.

You can clean your felt hat with a lint brush as needed. Straw hats can be wiped with a slightly damp cloth.

Vintage crepe should never touch water. For cleaning, seek a local professional dry cleaning service and ask them if they are familiar with vintage fabrics.

Vintage velvet should never be ironed, this bruises the fibers.

Wool and cotton vintage is easy to care for and usually can be hand washed in cold water. Lay flat to dry, warm iron as needed.
