Why Silk: Benefits of silk

Why we use and love silk so much!

Silk is known for not only being the Queen of fabrics, it also comes with a number of benefits. Referred to as the 'epitome of fabrics and textiles', silk looks, feels and conveys luxury. Over the years, we have converted numerous customers to trying and they've never looked back! That is also why we use this amazing fabric to create our signature face masks.

Understanding Mulberry Silk 

The highest quality of silk that is produced from the silkworms of Bombyx Mori moth, the diet of the moths consist of only mulberry leaves, where the fabric is named after. It is also the most widely used luxurious silk type in the world!

Benefits of Silk




  •  Mulberry silk is a natural product which is safe for sensitive skin or allergies. Lounging and sleeping in silk is ideal for soothing skin conditions and preventing further irritations.


Temperature Regulation



  • Silk is ideal for both humid, dry climates and temperatures. It naturally regulates skin temperature, giving a cooling and non-sticky feeling and its breathability is perfect for anyone.


Hydrating, for great skin and hair




  • Silk as a fabric helps you retain moisture and natural oils which are usually absorbed by other absorbent fabrics, resulting in dry and dull skin.
  • Naturally breathable fibers in silk embraces skin vitality whilst its smooth silky texture protects and keeps your hair soft, moisturized and tangle-free.


Mummy and Baby-safe






  • Organically made, silk is naturally anti-microbial, repels bacteria, dust mites and keeps mold out.
  • Silk robes and slips are perfect for pregnant mummies as it offers movement, natural shape and comfort during their term. Robes also double up as a nursing or delivery outfit for comfort and convenience.
  • Soft and frictionless, silk feels good for babies to lie on. Silk also reduces the likelihood of the fabric tugging on baby hair which might cause baby bald-spots.
