When we say that we only use the highest quality silk available on the market, we mean mulberry silk.
For millennia, mulberry trees have been cultivated in China, and their leaves harvested as a food source for the mulberry silkworm (Bombyx mori). These caterpillars then build cocoons made of a single thread of raw silk up to 3,000 ft. long. The fine fibers are then spun to create the silk thread.
Although cocoons of other moths are also used to produce commercial silks, the Bombyx mori caterpillars who are kept on a strict diet of mulberry leaves make the longest and whitest fibers. The fabric made of mulberry silk is more uniform in both color and texture and is considered the best among all types of silk. Clothing and accessories made of 100% mulberry silk are the most durable in the luxury goods segment.
Mulberry silk is 100% natural, odorless and hypoallergenic. It contains sericin, a protein that is widely used in medicine and cosmetics for its wound-healing, moisturizing and anti-aging properties.
