Mulberry Silk, 100% natural
Silk is a natural fiber produced by a domesticated insect, the silkworm, raised by man since time immemorial.
An oriental tradition tells that while a Chinese princess was having tea in her garden in the shade of a mulberry tree, a cocoon fell from the tree into her cup. As soon as this got soaked, the threads of which it was composed began to unravel and the princess discovered by chance the thread of pure silk.
Silk is known for its luster due to the very nature of its filament which is born as a semi-liquid and solidifies in contact with the air while remaining translucent.
It’s a fiber that can absorb up to 30% of its weight in moisture and is highly breathable, therefore suitable all year long.
Its resistance to moths and mites and its elasticity make it a resistant and soft fiber suitable for various uses.
