Our gowns are available from stock in our easy care fabric which was chosen by our customers. The feedback we heard from our customers suggested frequently they were “too hot” and you wanted a garment that wasn’t too heavy and allowed them to “breathe” while they were on stage under the lights, or whilst they were at the centre of attention. Additionally, it was suggested that a fabric which is easy to look after and that could be transported easily, would be beneficial there are clearly benefits to being able to wash, transport, and iron choir robes in a domestic environment.
