SILK

from nature...  returned to nature...   

Silk dates back to 3000 BC. Originating in China, it was brought to Europe via the famed Silk Road, to Italy. Notably the region of Lake Como became the epicentre of silk production in Europe. The demand for this immensely desirable, luxury fabric led to a thriving trade on the continent. From Italy, silk production spread to France and centred in Lyon. Till today Lyon is the birthplace of the finest French Silks.

Our luxurious Silks are sourced from two renowned silk manufacturing houses in the Region of Como in Italy and Lyon in France.  Distinguished, family owned mills; ethical, transparent and responsible in their manufacturing practices; having expertise and savoir-faire in their long tradition handed down through generations.  

Pure Silk is comfortable and feels luxuriously soft against the skin. It is a natural thermal insulator, making it wearable for all climates. It is durable and has natural hypoallergenic qualities. Biodegradable, returning back to nature.

Our Silk garments are beautifully made on the outside as well as on the inside with couture finishings and stitches, by skilled artisans with the French savoir-faire.
