In addition to its high aesthetic appeal, silk fiber makes for a very comfortable fabric suited for all seasons as it is both cooling and warming. Similar to wool it can hold up to 1/3 of its weight of water vapor without feeling wet. Silk fibers are very fine and has a smooth hand feel, making the comfort excellent next to skin. Silk also has great resilience – very fine and light weight weaves might crease, but wrinkles tend to fall out by themselves (a good tip is to hang silk garments in a humid room to achieve faster results).
In terms of environmental impact, not much research has been done yet on silk. Current research indicates that silk has similar impact as wool, though depending on the origin. We use silk in our collections as it make for long lasting, beautiful and functional garments. In the end increased utility and appreciation of a garment is the ultimate goal and the most favorable result in terms of sustainability.
