Silk Pillow Case Quartz
This pillowcase 100% mulberry silk is hand dyed in a bath of acacia wood and garance roots. It has been imagined as a beauty product: silk keeps the skin moisturized and smoothes the hair fiber. The organic dye is safe for the body and has properties.
The Mulberry silk is 100% natural, hypoallergenic and odorless. This luxurious fabric contains a natural protein called “sericin” that reduces the possibility of an allergic reaction.
French seams and closure flap with small mother of pearl buttons.
This piece is made-to-order in Paris and hand-dyed in my workshop in Courances, Ile-de-France.
3 sizes are available below.
Hand-dyed with Garance roots
The use of madder root to obtain pink, orange and red tones goes back to antiquity. Fabrics dyed with madder were found in the tomb of Tutankhamen. Madder is still cultivated in the south of France and in the Netherlands. It still used to facilitate childbirth in North Africa.
