If you have ever had that sinking feeling when unpacking a delivery of garments only to find they bear little resemblance to what you thought you had ordered, it’s time to get out the clothes steamer. More popular than ever before, clothes steamers are perfect for injecting life into flattened garments. They encourage crushed fibres to relax and plump up, giving clothing a more relaxed and voluminous look.
There are some very good reasons why steaming is so popular in the fashion world. While conventional ironing techniques crush and flatten the fibres of the fabric (which admittedly is good if you want creases), steaming allows the fabric’s fibres to gently relax. This enables wrinkles to quickly drop away, allowing even delicate fabrics to drape as intended and without a tell-tale fold-line or packing crease in sight.
Morplan, the UK’s leading retail supplier, has sold more than 30000 clothes steamers in our 170 year history. We know a thing or two about what retailers, seamstresses and tailors are looking for in an appliance!
