100% LUXURIOUS MULBERRY SILK FOR HEALTHY, HYDRATED SKIN AND HAIR
We stitch our luxurious Silk Pillowcases with an envelope enclosure from 100% mulberry silk in a 22-momme weight (read: divine). Our exceptional silk is 100% natural, hypoallergenic, and temperature regulating. They are STANDARD 100 by OEKO-TEX® to keep you safe from toxins. Silk pillowcases can help tame and hydrate hair, prevent wrinkles, and nurture skin health. A 100% GOTS organic certified cotton wash bag makes cleaning your pillowcase (and protecting it) simple.
NATURAL, RENEWABLE, LUXURIOUS MULBERRY SILK
Silk is a natural, biodegradable fabric that requires less water to harvest than other fabrics. Mulberry silk is woven from the cocoons of domesticated silkworms that feed on the leaves of the mulberry tree. It’s recognized as one of the most awesome fabrics in the world — fine and light yet exceptionally strong and durable. The weight of the silk in our pillowcase is 22 Momme (mm) — a durable and lustrous weave. It’s also hypoallergenic, completely odorless, and certified Standard 100 by OEKO-TEX® (tested for harmful substances).
MOMME SAY WHAT?
Momme (mm) is a measurement of the unit of weight of silk. The higher the momme, the more durable, dense, and luxurious the weave. Most silk pillowcases are 19 momme or less. But our 100% pure mulberry Silk Pillowcase is 22 momme, ensuring a lifespan that is about 50 percent longer. We only use the highest grade 6A long fiber silk to create one of the most luxurious, temperature- and moisture-regulating silk pillowcases in the world.
PREVENT WRINKLES, BED HEAD, AND DRY SKIN
Because silk is so smooth, it reduces friction. Hair glides over the surface, which helps prevent frizzy hair — especially helpful for those with textured, curly locks. Its smoothness can also help retain moisture in your hair and skin — keeping them more hydrated all night long. The frictionless, lustrous fabric also reduces tension on the face and can help prevent wrinkles.
Washing your Silk Pillowcase is easy. Place it in the included protective wash bag. Secure the closure by tieing the drawstring in a knot to prevent the pillowcase from falling out during the wash cycle. Machine wash on a cold, gentle cycle. Hang dry and avoid direct sunlight exposure. Do not bleach.
BIODEGRADABLE AND ZERO-WASTE
We believe in a circular economy that accounts for the lifecycle of our products. That’s one reason we design our Silk Pillowcases entirely from 100% silk. The natural material makes the pillow completely biodegradable. What’s more is that our organic certified California factory, which we power entirely with renewable energy, is on its way toward a Zero-Waste certification, meaning nothing gets thrown away. We upcycle all our material byproducts. The effort is consistent with our mission to set a new bar in environmental and social responsibility.
A CARBON NEGATIVE PRODUCT
In 2019, Avocado Green Mattress became the first mattress company to become Climate Neutral Certified, effectively making our business “carbon neutral.” A year later, we took it a step further by going carbon negative — offsetting more carbon emissions than the company generates. Carbon offsets are vehicles for paying to remove carbon from the atmosphere or to prevent greenhouse gases from getting there in the first place by financing things like forest conservation or clean energy.
