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 natural 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 GOTS-certified organic 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 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 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.
Avocado is always seeking innovative ways to be more sustainable — while never compromising the luxury feel of our products. From materials to manufacturing and shipping, we understand that every small decision contributes to our larger impact. Implementing sustainable, zero-waste practices is essential if we want to make meaningful strides in the fight against climate change. In 2022, by being intentional about our materials and manufacturing, we expanded our production facility footprint from two to five while still increasing the amount of waste we diverted from landfills by 9%, achieving an overall waste diversion rate of 78%. Our goal is at least an 80% diversion rate. Read more about Project Zero Waste.
