We recently launched our own range of silk pillowcases and here’s why we love them!
Less Wrinkles On Your Face
Do you wake up with sleep wrinkles? Dermatologists can easily tell which side of our body we sleep on just from looking at us and as we age, these sleep wrinkles slowly develop into permanent lines. Silk causes less friction than other materials and minimises these ageing effects.
The smoothness of silk allows hair to glide across as you move in your sleep without the friction that usually causes hair breakage and the dreaded “bed head”. You will wake up with tangle-free hair and enjoy reduced hair loss in the long run.
Hypoallergenic and Temperature-Regulating
Silk proteins repel dust mites and other allergens, thereby reducing reactions such as asthma. Silk’s natural anti-bacterial and anti-fungal properties have also been proven to help ease conditions such as eczema, sensitive skin post-chemotherapy, psoriasis and many more. Lastly, the material is naturally a poor conductor of heat, so it will keep you warm in winter and cool in the summer.
Peace Silk: the Ethical and Sustainable Alternative
Conventional production boils silkworms alive so that silk cocoons can be collected before the moths fly away damaging silk strands as they emerge.
Approximately 3,000 silkworms are killed in the making of every pound of silk. A cruelty-free alternative is to choose peace silk, whereby cocoons are harvested after the silkworms have emerged naturally and flown away as moths.
Our peace silk is also Fairtrade-certified, helping to alleviate poverty for our producers in rural India.
