Sequins, beads, glitters and ornamental trimming are back in style.
You will find them on dresses, jackets, sweaters and handbags. If you have purchased or plan to purchase a garment with this attractive trim, please be aware:
“Sequins are always delicate but they can be serviceable if they are made properly. Unserviceable sequins can lose colour, lose shine or curl. If the thread holding them is inferior, it may break and allow the sequins to unravel. Unserviceable beads can dissolve or transfer dye to the surrounding fabric. Glitter which is glued on may fall off during dry cleaning or washing.”
At Centennial Dry Cleaners we have the know-how to preserve the beauty of these fashionable and expensive garments.
Please note, garments trimmed with inferior or ‘unserviceable’ sequins, beads and trimming are susceptible to damage if treated with traditional drycleaning techniques. However, our gentle Hydocarbon processes are so delicate that this risk of damage is considerably reduced.
