We use a range of different materials to create our different designs. We more commonly use a silk blend fabric for our bohemian dresses, skirts, kimonos and some of our tops. However, we also use viscose for our boho tops. When it comes to our fair-trade knits, we favour a super-soft mohair blend that means no scratchiness on your warmer fits. We also enjoy using ply suede fabrics, faux furs, rayon voile, acrylic blends, beading, wool, embroidery and we occasionally use denim for some of our jackets/pants.

Here at Cienna Designs, we enjoy finding the perfect manufacturing process for each of our fits. Our knits are produced in Indonesia, on old traditional knitting machines, by a family we’ve worked with for over 15 years now. This enables us to make every knit by hand and infuse it with the right amount of love and individuality. 

We also use India and Indonesia to produce some of our other products, solely because we believe in giving back to the community that gave us bohemian design and ensuring every item is aligned with the creativity and eccentricity of their culture.

However, the rest of our fits are produced right here in Australia. It makes it easy for our brand to stick to true Australian sizing. 

All of our boho dresses, skirts, tops, wraps, kimonos, pants, accessories and more (in fact, everything we sell at Cienna Designs…) are designed here in Australia. Our love for India and Indonesia makes it easy for us to constantly develop new designs and styles that are perfect for the Australian seasons and make the bohemian style easy, affordable, fashionable and achievable.

Our return of goods policy accords with the Australian Consumer Law. You can explore the details of our refunds and returns here or download a copy of our returns form here if you’d like to learn more or lodge a return.

A lot of our garments are found all over Australia, NZ and USA! Our products are in such demand that you can find the full list of “stockists” (places that stock Cienna Designs). It makes it ultra-easy for you to find your nearest in-store location to find your next favourite fit!

We take pride in our true Australian sizing and, as a result, we’ve spent our time putting together this size guide for all our products.

  • Acrylic blends can be machine-washed. But read the label for drying options – some retain their shape best if reshaped and dried flat
  • Denim should be washed with cold or warm water, inside out. When mixing with synthetic fabrics, always follow care directions for the delicate fabric which denim is mixed with. Hang to dry and iron on a high heat.
  • Polyester fabrics (including blends) rely on you reading the individual label. Usually it can be machine washed in cold water and dried on a low setting. Touch up with a cool – never hot – iron if necessary
  • Rayon fabrics usually need to be cleaned according to their label, but more commonly they need cool water and a mild detergent. Use a gentle cycle in the washing-machine and promptly remove garments after washing to avoid crinkles. Do not wring or twist the garment when hand-washing. To dry? Roll the item to squeeze out excess water and lay fat. Iron when still damp and do so when it is inside-out to prevent the fabric from looking “shiny”. 
  • Wool knits typically need to be dry-cleaned, but check the label. If hand-washable, use cool water and squeeze out excess water, then reshape and dry flat.
  • Wool (lined) garments generally look best when professionally dry-cleaned once a season. Between dry cleaning, remove surface dirt with a brush or damp cloth. Refresh the item by hanging from a padded hanger in a steamy bathroom or use a steam cleaner – moisture will help the piece shed wrinkles. 
  • Silk blend fabrics should be cared for similar to silk, being cleaned in cold water with a silk-friendly detergent where possible. Fabric conditioners can help to keep it soft. 
  • Embroidered pieces benefit from being turned inside out when cleaning and avoid mixing it with other clothing that may cause damage, such as zippers or buttons. It’s best to avoid machine-drying, instead opt for air-drying where possible.
  • Ply suede is best cleaned according to the label. It’s best to spot test with any cleaning solution you may use, spot clean stains, and machine wash separately from other items to prevent it from collecting lint. If you need to wash it with something else? Put it in a delicates bag to separate it.
  • Mohair must be washed carefully by hand with no twisting or wringing involved. Lay the fabric in a basin or sink with lukewarm or cold water and use a gentle soap to clean. It’s best to gently squeeze the fabric to remove excess moisture and lay the piece flat, as air-drying preserves the loft of the fibers. Avoid direct sunlight when drying. Steam as necessary.
