Natural fiber clothing may be more expensive up front, but it is a better investment in the long term as it keeps its form, color and style better than synthetic fabrics. It’s also a better option for the environment and the lack of ‘nasty’ chemicals must be better for our health!
Silk Slows Down Ageing
Silk has the quality of organic, cloud-like appearance that makes you feel fresh. The amino acids contained in silk are natural nutrients found in the fabric and they have been found to reduce specific signs of ageing, such as wrinkles. Since silk is a natural material, it is easier to produce and retain moisture on its own.
Silk Clothing Helps with Eczema and Asthma
Silk, known for its hypoallergenic properties, is compatible with all skin types. Its dense fabric structure prevents dust and mites from accumulating, which in turn protects the wearer from day-to-day allergens. Apart from eczema, this silk's quality can help treat people with asthma.
Natural Anti-Fungal Element
Silk is a popular choice for nightwear. Not only does it make you feel nice and smooth while you sleep, but it can also stave off recurring infections in women. Also, the moisture-absorption capability of silk scraps the environment for the yeast to thrive.
Silk Can Improve Sleep
You fall asleep quickly while draped in silk dresses. That's why this fabric is becoming increasingly popular with beddings manufacturers. The reason is simple: it makes you comfortable.
And, very importantly, it’s also
one of the most versatile pieces in your wardrobe.

If you do like a boyfriend’s look, then wear your printed shirt under a men’s suit jacket and paired with cool jeans for an ultimate androgynous look.
- To transition to a date night look, pair the silk blouse with tailored trousers, a floaty skirt or a high-waisted skirt and add red lipstick and lots of gold accessories!
