LULAS?
WHO IS THIS
SURPRISE?

Ulla Ties Upcycling Expert

I have always had a thing for ties, “I am Ulla Heinz – founder of the accessories label LULAS. From Berlin. Fancy that!

I have always enjoyed 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. In this way, each tie becomes an absolutely unique piece.

The tie upcycling takes place in my Kreuzberg studio, that’s where all the designs are created and most of the unique pieces are made there too.”

This is how you
look after your Lulas

Silk is a very fine, delicate fabric that is unfortunately not so 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 bit with alcohol or benzine. Gently dab your silk tie clean with it. Don’t rub, it will only damage your LULAS. Be patient! You may have to repeat the process! Then air the tie well.

screwdriver
Second possibility

Use a jar with a lockable lid like a mini washing machine. Roll up silk ties (remove the button first, if necessary) and put them in the jar. Pour some benzine into the jar and then close it. Now 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 possibility

Another proven remedy for removing grease stains is talcum powder. Carefully sprinkle a little talcum powder on the stain and let the powder soak in (do not rub). Talcum powder absorbs moisture and grease. After a few minutes you can carefully tap the talcum powder off your LULAS.

ironing
Ironing LULAS?

Do you want to iron your tie? No problem! Always place a kitchen towel over your LULAS to protect it. Silk and polyester are very sensitive to heat and therefore melt very quickly. Set your iron on a low level and carefully go over the tie. Do not press and iron slowly.

washing vintage clothes
Do you have a synthetic LULAS?

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