Frequently asked questions
What is silk?
Silk is an animal-derived natural fibre, which is produced mainly by silkmoth larvae, the insects of the domestic silk moth family. Silk is one of the oldest textile materials known to mankind and is praised through the ages due to its tenderness, shine, durability and other unique qualities.
The process of silk production begins by the creation of cocoons by the silkmoth larvae. The cocoons consist of one long thread of silk which the silkworms produce out of glands in their bodies. To retrieve silk, the cocoons are subjected to processing. The most widely used method is cooking of the cocoons, which disolves the glue that holds the threads together. Then the long threads are winded up, and many threads are binded together, so that more durable threads ready for spinning can be formed.
Silk is exceptional due to its qualities. It has a natural shine, which gives the fabrics their elegance and luxurious look. It is also light, airy and cool, which makes it popular for summer and formal wear. Silk has the ability to regulate temperature, which means it can adjust to warming and cooling of the body. It is strong and durable, however it is also more vulnerable to damage due to sun ray and moisture exposure when compared to some synthetic fibres.
What can you sew out of silk?
Natural silk is a universal material, which can be used to sew many products. Due to its special qualities, it is utilised in the production of clothing, underwear, accessories, beddings and home decor, such as curtains, drapes, blankets and decorational pillows.
Silk fabric is fit for manufacturing both casual and formal wear: from loose blouses, comfortable trousers and everyday skirts to elegant evening dresses and suits. It is used with success in sewing airy shawls and scarves, stylish ties and bowties, as well as subtle handbags for special occasions and fancy caps, hats and bands.
