HOW ARE THE SILK SQUARES MADE?
We use the traditional process of silk-screen to print the designs. Each color on every square is hand screened onto 12mm 100% mulberry silk twill. This process yields the best quality of color. Each piece is then hemmed by hand-rolling the edge.

HOW ARE THE CUSHIONS/PILLOWS MADE?
The silk square is fused to a protective backing before the construction of the cushion. It is joined with the back panel made of Dutch cotton velvet and trimmed with a either self-welting or a brush fringe. The cushion is filled with down-feather insert.

CAN I ORDER CUSTOM CUSHIONS/PILLOWS?
Yes. If you would like a pillow made from any silk square not currently offered as a pillow, we can make it for you. Just contact us with your request. This can take 3 to 6 weeks depending on the details and availability of materials. Once the details of the request are confirmed we will give you an estimation.

WHAT IS MULBERRY SILK?
Mulberry silk is the highest quality silk available for purchase. The unique thing about Mulberry silk is how it is produced. Mulberry silk has its history in China, where local farmers grow mulberry leaves for silkworms to feed on. The resulting cocoons are spun into raw Mulberry silk fibers.
Because the silkworms of the Bombyx mori moth only feed on mulberry leaves, the resulting silk is some of the finest available in the world. Mulberry silk is more refined than other types of silk. Other types of silks such as wild silk are less uniform in colour and texture, with shorter strands.
One of the unique benefits of Mulberry Silk is that it is 100% natural, odorless and hypoallergenic.
