So, why have we chosen silk to craft our luxury scarves? What is silk anyways?
Silks are one of the finest textiles in the world, discovered by the Chinese over 5,000 years ago. The process of producing silk is called sericulture. Sericulture, also known as silk farming, is how silkworms are cultivated in order to produce silk. From farming to making finished goods, the process is long and arduous.
Silk is expensive because of its limited availability and cost to produce. The average retail price for a genuine 100% luxury silk scarf ranges between $200 and $600 dollars.
Silks offer the best vibrancy; colors are always intensified when using this type of textiles. There is no other fabric, other than silk that takes to color better! Designers love working with silk because of how brilliantly prints appear.
Silk scarves epitomizes class and femininity. Because of silk's versatility, the investment is well worth the spend. Every woman should have a silk scarf in their wardrobe, and best of all, “They Always Fit”!
