one of our main values so we ensure our silk is has the ultimate combination of
shine, thickness, softness and durability. We use the highest grade (6A) long

Silk is the
smoothest fabric available & it is protein based, rather than plant or
synthetic based. Traditional fabrics don’t have such a smooth surface, which
means there is more friction when moving around on your pillowcase, causing
fine lines, face creases & skin irritation. It has been proven that other fabrics
absorb more moisture compared to silk, and thus they rob your skin & hair
of the vital moisture needed to have healthy, young skin & shiny hair.

just one level above cold.
any accidental tears during machine wash we recommend to use a bag for delicates.

sheen. The shinier it is, the better it will slide, which is one of the
benefits to its health and beauty qualities.
When drying your pillowcase, do not use tumble dryer, do not expose to direct
sunlight, dry flat in a shade.
The biggest difference between the two is that silk is
a protein based natural fiber and satin is a weave and comes from synthetic
fibers. Satin is
thinner, rougher and it ‘sweats’, essentially negating the benefits for your skin & hair. Silk fibers
are durable & stand the test of time, silk pillowcase will never get the
“fluffy spools” & look old after few uses.

synthetic nature it doesn’t have the same benefits that silk does, for example
