Star Blossom flat shoes
Traditional embroidered shoes use silk as the fabric of the upper. After designing a variety of silk embroidered shoes, we decided to try some new fabrics, including a thick canvas. The canvas is composed of blocks in blue, brown, beige and white. But its thickness requires machine embroidery instead of our usual hand-done work. The asymmetry of the blocks also means that every pair is unique. The embroidery is a non-specific flower with bright colors. The effect was unexpected! Considering how each pair of Star Blossom flats is different from the others, you'll want to contact us after placing an order so we can confirm the final look.
Outside: machine embroidered pattern in cotton
Shape: loose fit shoes for most feet; leather for midsole; leather outsole; suitable for outdoor wear.
Note: size matters at Suzhou Cobblers. Customized orders are handmade and cannot be returned. Please follow Suzhou Cobblers instructions on sizing to ensure the correct fit.
How to clean silk shoes? That's difficult, as silk can't easily be cleaned -- UNLESS IT IS PROTECTED IN ADVANCE. The first step is to protect the shoes so that they won't easily get dirty. And if the protection is done correctly, silk can be cleaned. Oil based protective sprays like this for materials including cotton and leather usually also work with silk.
To apply, spray the protection on the surface of the shoes to create a layer that will repel water and grime. Whichever brand you choose, make sure it is designed to protect material.
To clean after the protection is in place, dab a small amount of clear detergent on a damp white towel and gently tap on the dirty area. Still, take care. Suzhou Cobblers products aren’t waterproof. Our products aren’t usually suitable for foul weather and the protection won’t help much on a rainy or snowy day.
