How to Care for Metallic and Lamé Clothes and Accessories

Lamé evokes the look of old Hollywood glamour and is still worn by stars today when they want to shimmer. Since the price of metallic yarns and fabrics has dropped and production has become more simple, lamé is now readily available in the mass fashion off-the-rack and home accessories market.To get more news about metallic fabric cloth, you can visit mesh-fabrics official website.

What Is Lamé?
Lamé is a type of fabric woven or knit with thin metallic yarns and is produced in many designs, depending on the composition of the other threads in the fabric. Vintage lamé was gold or silver in color, but today you can find a range of colors from emerald to fuchsia to turquoise available. Lamé fabrics can be found on handbags, accessories, home decor, and even furniture upholstery.

Vintage lamé was made with true metallic threads of gold, silver, or copper that could tarnish with age. Today's lamé fabrics can be a woven or knit textile with a combination of metallic-coated fibers of polyester or nylon yarns. The use of these mainly synthetic fibers makes the fabric much more lightweight, easier to handle during the construction of a garment, and easier care.

Buyers should be aware that even with the improvements to the production of lamé, the fabric is not durable or easy to care for. It is not a good choice for garments or items that will be worn or used often. Friction and mechanical action during wear may cause fragile metallic yarns to snap. Metallic yarn fabrics are attractive but not very serviceable. When wearing lamé, avoid brushing against rough surfaces to reduce snags and tears.

The same care instructions recommended for lamé should be followed with all fashion fabrics that have metallic threads woven into or embroidered onto fabrics. This will keep the finish of the threads pristine and prevent excessive breakage.
