LULAS?
WHO IS THIS?

Ulla Ties Upcycling Expert

I have always loved ties, “I’m Ulla Heinz – founder of the accessory label LULAS by Beverly Berlin. From Berlin. Who would have thought!

I’ve always loved wearing ties as an accessory. Whether classically around the neck, or with a turtleneck instead of a shirt – as a belt so that the trousers don’t slip or the dress fits nicely.

Now I create all imaginable accessories out of ties. The colorful variety in shape, color and pattern inspires me again and again. Every tie is an absolutely unique piece.

The tie upcycling takes place in my Kreuzberg studio, where all designs are created and most of the unique items are made. “

This is how you look after
your Lulas

Silk is a very fine, delicate material that is unfortunately not that easy to clean. In any case, never wash your silk LULAS in the washing machine.

gasoline
First possibility

Take a white cotton cloth and moisten it a little with alcohol or benzine. Gently dab your silk tie clean with it. Do not rub, it will only damage your LULAS. Be patient! You may have to repeat the process! Then air the tie well.

glass
Second option

Use a jar with a lockable lid like a mini washing machine. Roll up the silk ties (if necessary remove the button beforehand) and put them in the glass. Pour some benzine into the glass and then close it. Shake the glass a little so that the benzine is well distributed. Now leave the whole thing overnight so that everything can evaporate and get the stain out of your LULAS. The next day you remove the tie from  the jar and let it air out. Many spots will have disappeared overnight.

powder
Third option

Another proven remedy for removing grease stains is talcum powder. Carefully sprinkle a little talc on the stain and let the powder take effect (do not rub). Talcum powder soaks up moisture and grease. After a few minutes you can carefully tap the talc from your LULAS.

ironing
Iron LULAS?

Would you like to iron your tie? No problem! Always put a kitchen towel over your LULAS to protect it. Silk and synthetics are very sensitive to heat and therefore melt very quickly. Put your iron on a low level and carefully iron over the tie. Do not squeeze and iron slowly.

washing vintage clothes
Do you have a LULAS made of synthetics?

A synthetics tie is more resistant when it comes to stains. You can clean them with a little warm water. If this isn’t enough to remove the stain, use some laundry detergent (without bleach). In an emergency, you can wash your synthetic LULAS in the washing machine.
