Ever Wonder Why We Wear Mulberry Silk Accessories?

Accessories make up such a small part of our wardrobes. Neckties, bow ties, and scarves only really decorate our necks.

Mulberry silk is also one of the most expensive materials we make accessories with. So why do we wear it over other materials?

The Most Durable Fabric

There is a reason mulberry silk accessories can be expensive. It is very difficult to make.

But this extra effort is worth it. Since mulberry silk is a natural fibre, accessories made from the fabric are a lot more durable than more industrially made fabrics.

The Best Fabric for Your Skin

Mulberry silk is frequently used to make pillowcases and bedsheets. Bedsheets made from mulberry silk are often considered of higher quality than cotton bedsheets because they feel a lot softer on your skin.

Mulberry silk is also hydrophobic, meaning that it resists absorbing sweat when you wear accessories made from the material. This keeps the silk from staining and also keeps sweat off your skin, preventing acne.

The Most Breathable Fabric

Because of its low thread count, mulberry silk accessories don't retain air that heats up against your skin when you wear it. This keeps your skin from becoming too warm by allowing air to circulate.

This also creates an accessory that is so light that when you wear it, you hardly feel that it's there.

The World's Most Luxurious Fabric

This is probably the biggest reason we wear mulberry silk accessories: mulberry silk shines in a way few fabrics can compare with. This shine looks especially nice with brillant and multicoloured accessories.
