SILK, UNIQUE NATURAL FIBER
Silk is a natural fiber discovered in China 5000 years ago and whose manufacturing secret was well kept for several millennia. Arrived in the West by the Silk Road, it first became a subject popular with kings and their courts before being democratized. The production of silk fiber is a real skill, resulting from a close symbiosis between nature and man. Even today, silk is considered a noble and refined material because it remains produced in small quantities.

MYSILKIN COMMITTED SILK
When selecting silk, it was essential for us to be certain that no chemical harmful to the environment, for those who cultivate it and for consumers would hide behind a home/night item with which we are in contact more than 30% of our lives. For example, fine chemical particles are still too present in certain dyeing processes in the textile industry and insidiously interfere in the daily life of each actor in the sector and even to the consumer.
The silk of MYSILKIN pillowcases and masks proudly displays the GOTS certification, the most demanding label in the world in terms of organic textiles. Unlike some self-proclaimed labels which are not subject to controls, the GOTS label is granted by an external body which follows strict criterias in terms of environmental and social respect.
A requirement that is found through traceability throughout the production process to consumers: from planting and growing mulberry trees, raising silkworms, spinning, weaving, dyeing and confection.
