Silk fibres are strong, yet very fine and naturally insulating. There is nothing more luxurious against the skin than a fluid, drapey silk shirt or dress, which is why we favour this material in our womenswear collections.
How It's MadeSilk fibres are derived from the cocoon of silkworm larvae. There are five different types of silkworm with colours ranging from light golden yellow to copper, all with a distinct sheen and handfeel, which determines their end use. Farmers harvest the silk threads with steam, which are then spun and woven into silk fabrics. What We UseWe predominantly work with a lightweight silk weave called crêpe de chine. The surface has a smooth appearance on both the front and back of the fabric, making it the perfect canvas for designers to translate prints on to. Silk also serves as an ideal fibre to blend with wool to help our knitwear drape and bring a subtle lustre to the yarn. View Ways To Care
