We use mulberry silk (momme weight 19) with a satin weave for all our products. Made in India, it is extracted from the cocoon after the silk moth has left the cocoon. Because of the particular way it is produced, is more like a fine linen with a beautiful matte lustre rather than the shiny finish of traditional silk.
Silk is the strongest of natural fibres. It contains natural protein and 18 essential amino acids. It also contains natural cellular albumen which speeds up the metabolism of skin cells.
As it is a breathable fabric and a natural temperature regulator, silk helps the body retain heat in cold weather while excess heat is expelled in warm weather, helping your body maintain a comfortable, natural temperature.
Silk is hypoallergenic; it does not attract dust mites and is a natural fungal repellant. As it does not conduct static electricity, sleeping on silk helps reduce hair breakage.
Unlike cotton, silk does not draw moisture away from your skin and hair, but encourages a proper moisture balance, while it's extremely smooth and soft texture proves to be beneficial for those with sensitive skin conditions (e.g. Eczema).
We keep our pillowcases and the reverse of our eye masks (the side that is next to your eyes) its natural, undyed ivory color.
