100% Natural

Silk is a 100% natural fibre obtained from the cocoons of silkworms. The Cocoons are softened in water and filaments are unwound and woven together to create silk threads.

Temperature Regulating

Silk is naturally temperature regulating which means it keeps you cool in summer and warm in winter. This makes it a great choice for year-round bedding.

Silk duvets provide warmth while preventing you from overheating at night.

Strong and Durable

While it looks delicate, silk is a very durable material and resists soil and odors. It will also withstand most accidental damage helping to prolong its life.

Hypoallergenic

Silk is the most hypoallergenic fabric. Because of its protein structure, it naturally repels dust mites and resists bacteria and mold.

Keeps Skin Moisturized

Silk absorbs less moisture from your skin while sleeping, which means your skin’s natural oils and any moisturizers you apply stay put.

Anti-Aging Properties

Because it helps skin keep its natural moisture, silk is also said to be an anti-aging fabric. The smooth texture of silk causes less friction and the fabric will not leave impressions on the skin. The natural cellular albumen in silk fibres are also said to help speed up skin cell metabolism which can help reduce the signs of aging.

No More “Bed Head”

Silk isn’t just great for your skin, the smooth surface of a silk pillowcase can help prevent hair breakage and frizz because hair encounters less resistance while you move in your sleep.
