Silk is one of the finest and most valuable natural fibers!

Silk has a calming and healing effect on the skin and absorbs up to 30% of its own weight in moisture without feeling damp. It is breathable and temperature compensating and also ideal for allergy sufferers. Naturopaths recommend silk especially for skin diseases.

This is Jonathan - our organic silk baby

Jonathan prefers to wear silk underwear. With its protein structure, silk has the greatest resemblance to the structure of the human skin of all textile fibers and thus guarantees optimal skin compatibility.

Naturopaths recommend silk especially for skin diseases. Silk has been shown to provide relief for irritated skin and accelerate wound healing.

The high proportion of silk glue (sericin) in bourette silk has a soothing and anti-inflammatory effect. Bourette silk is therefore particularly used for diaper and nursing pads and baby clothing. Babies and children with neurodermatitis or psoriasis cannot control skin scratching, especially at night. Treat your child to a comfortable fit and protection against scratching without restricting freedom of movement.
