At Silk Soul, we know silk! We live and breathe silk, and for good reason. So what’s so great about silk? Silk has been regarded by the Chinese as the ultimate luxury cloth for over 4,000 years. Soft, warm and lightweight, silk effectively controls the body’s temperature. Silk is another fibre, like goose-down, wool and cotton that doonas are commonly made from.
The benefits of silk
Not only does silk look and feel great, but it actually has a number of benefits. Silk is a great product for people suffering from allergies, asthma, hay fever and arthritis. Because silk is a natural fibre, it breathes! Simply, it will keep you warm in winter and comfortable in spring, summer and autumn, without adding any chemical enhancements! Additionally, if you’ve had any issues in the past with finding creepy crawlies in your bed linen, switch to silk! Silk is ideal because dust mites and other living things can’t actually live and nest in the material. So to wrap up, silk is 100% natural, doesn’t have any artificial fibres, doesn’t require any special cleaning, doesn’t house any creepy-crawlies and, is built to last. Well, for all these reasons and beyond is why we’re on the silk bandwagon!
Why Silk Soul?
What started as a hobby, quickly turned into a love and respect for silk. We realised we had to look overseas to source the best silk, so our search began – in China. After extensive research and sample evaluations, we decided on one silk maker and a separate cover, as this is the best way to control the quality. And we have stayed with the same makers since! We have a team on the ground in the silk region in China, with their mission to control the quality of silk that comes into Australia. Essentially, we source the best silk possible, and bring it back to our shores to hand make. Our doonas are designed by Australians, for Australians. We have representative offices in Shanghai and our inspectors check all silk products as they are manufactured – so rest assured you’ll be receiving quality Mulberry silk, not some cheap substitute. Our group of companies has been operating in China since 1985. Our reputation is paramount – we work very hard to bring our customers the best silk in China. We are constantly evaluating our silk and developing new features to ensure we remain number one.
Silk Soul doonas are handmade with 100% Grade A Mulberry silk. They are hypoallergenic, luxurious and super comfortable. They are covered by a 14-day warranty, so any issues, no worries!
