Our little black mini dress is made of pure mulberry silk, machine woven by Samniang Thai Silk cooperative in Pak Thong Chai, Thailand. The production of our mulberry silk is a combination of traditional and modern techniques to offer high-quality silk while supporting community sericulture projects.
Silk yarn sourced from the most trustworthy silk producer in Thailand, Chul Thai Silk, who supports over 2000 Mulberry silk farmers.
Woven by a local family with a small community mill in their backyard.
Mill personally visited by us to ensure safe working conditions.
Hand-dyed using certified safe, low impact dyes.
To ensure your silk retains its charm and beauty for many years to come, we recommend the following:
Take care to avoid extreme heat and direct sunlight when storing the product as this may cause colour fading and/or shrinkage. We recommend storing the product in a cool, shaded and dry place at all times.
Dry-clean only. Wear more, clean less! Iron inside out on a low heat.
As with all hand-dyed products, some colour variation within and between items is normal. Hand-dyed products may bleed slightly when wet, so please follow cleaning instructions carefully.
