Blissy Silk Pillowcases are made from all-natural mulberry silk. The 22-momme, grade 6A long fiber silk used for these pillowcases comes from the Bombyx mori silkworm. What makes all-natural silk a much better choice for a green silk pillowcase than any other material?
Mulberry silk is a renewable resource. The silk used to make Blissy Pillowcases comes from a natural source. The silkworms are nourished by the leaves of mulberry trees, and these trees are considered easy to grow and highly sustainable.
A silk pillowcase from Blissy is highly sustainable when compared to other materials. The process used to make these pillowcases involves a low amount of water usage, plus this material is biodegradable.
How do other types of pillowcase materials compare?
- Bamboo requires a high amount of chemicals to soften the fibers to produce pillowcases, which lowers its sustainability
- Cotton pillowcases require a high amount of water and energy during production, making them much less sustainable
- Synthetic fabrics used for pillowcases need non-renewable petroleum and require a high amount of energy to produce
On the other hand, Blissy silk provides a more sustainable material free from harmful substances for eco-friendly pillowcases.
