Eponymous to its name, Silk Stories's main focus is on creating pieces with the luxurious and soft fabric, which we're obsessed about. Besides the comforting touch of silk, it also has many skin-loving benefits. Silk is naturally hypoallergenic, breathable and non-abrasive. We hope to inspire stories of how silk makes one feel, and bring people together through these stories.
With a responsibility to the environment in mind, we made a conscious decision to manufacture pieces from natural fabrics such as silk, even though it can be much more costly as compared to synthetic ones (i.e. polyester). Silk is a strong and durable fabric that can last a lifetime, if cared for properly. At the end of its useful life, it will also biodegrade and compost naturally - unlike synthetic fabrics like polyester and nylon, which are cheaper to produce but are extremely harmful to the environment as they can take up to 200 years to break down in a landfill.
Our products are also OEKO-TEX® Standard 100 certified - this is one of the world's best-known labels for textiles tested for harmful substances. This means that the products does not contain any toxic or allergic substances. Read more on STANDARD 100 by OEKO-TEX® here.
