Behind The Scenes
Mulberry leaves are the only food for silkworms. It is very important to grow mulberry trees in an organic environment. The smell of any kind of insecticide or even perfume can cause deaths of silkworms.
Only around 5% of mulberry silk cocoon is dupion. Dupion is more elastic and more fluffy than other types of silk cocoon. The characteristics of the dupion silk make it the most suitable material for our silk duvet. It takes around 750 silk cocoons to make 500g of silk floss.
There are six steps to make clearwater silk wadding, each step is handcrafted by our artisans. The silk sericin protein can naturally repel allergy-inducing pests and mould. For the highest benefit of our health, we keep the silk wadding in their original forms. No bleach or chemicals were used to whiten them.
The art of stretching the silk layer is based on the tacit understanding of 4 artisans. The balance of stretching force will result in the leveling of each silk layer. With hand-stretched silk layered on top of each other is creates a breathable grid design, it allows extremely fluffy and airy silk inside the duvet. There is no need to fix a sewing thread in the middle of the duvet to keep the silk in place. We only stitched duvet on the outer edges.
A truly masterpiece begins with exceptional raw materials, curated with patience and expertise to craft handmade luxury silk duvet that reflects the quality of silk and the traditional silk culture.
Together, we are working to keep this timeless treasures alive.
