As one of the most well-known, time-honoured textiles, silk has garnered an esteemed reputation for its lustrous look, luxurious feel, and laudable benefits (after all, the phrase “smooth as silk” didn’t come from nowhere!) From its origins in Ancient China — where it quickly gained status as one of the most highly desired exports — to its contemporary standing as an opulent, enchanting fabric, silk goods have continued to dazzle the world round to this day.
To understand exactly what makes this exceptional textile stand out, let’s explore some amazing benefits silk has to offer!
Silk’s reputation as a prestigious fabric arose from its super soft hand-feel and sophisticated look. These qualities explain why silk has been synonymous with luxury for centuries over (in fact, Ancient China once restricted the use of silk to royals only!) With its smooth, lustrous texture and fine, wrinkle-free appearance, silk has remained a top choice for pillowcases, duvets, clothing, accessories, and much more. Did you know the second leading cause of wrinkles is sleeping? After sunlight/UV exposure, squishing your face into a pillow for approximately 2,500 hours per year is like ironing wrinkles into the skin.
