about our Silk
Valued for its softness and warmth, silk was also highly prized in the east for its lightness, and wearing it was described as ‘like being wrapped in a delicate cloud.’
Silk is appreciated for a number of qualities. It is surprisingly strong with a single filament being stronger than a steel filament of the same diameter.
It has a unique light reflecting property which gives it a wonderful lustre and an ability to capture colour. Most importantly perhaps, it is valued for being warm in winter and cool in summer. This is because of its ability to absorb up to 30% of its own weight in moisture without feeling damp.
We like to support, where we can, small family business who believe in design quality and who use only top quality materials. One such company, based in Italy, makes these lovely scarves which achieve their unique lustre through the quality of the silk and the skill of the hand weaving process.
Silk has a lasting quality: it is special, luxuriant and a treat to be treasured
