Silk is a fine fiber that comes from the cocoons of the silkworm, the larva of the domestic silk moth.
It is the only continuous fiber in the natural world and is made up essentially of protein.
In addition to China, Japan and India are also important producers of silk.
Filament silk is the finest silk quality and is reeled off the cocoon as a “continuous“ fiber.
Measuring up to 1200 m in length, it displays no irregularities or inclusions and is the world’s finest natural fiber.
Silk boasts a unique glossiness and strength and also offers effective protection against both cold and heat.
And no other natural material brings colors to bear so vibrantly…
Because they are water-sensitive, silk fabrics must be washed very carefully by hand (using special silk washing detergents).
Silk should never be wrung out as it is prone to losing its shape, particularly when wet.
It should be ironed when damp using the lowest heat setting.
It is also relatively sensitive to direct and prolonged sunlight.
When looked after properly however, pure silk garments offer unrivaled comfort and elegance …
