As we all know, good sleep is beneficial to the body, so our factory must be beneficial to you and a great place for you to learn how we get our silk-filled duvet done.
Our factory is not that big enough to hold thousands of workers, but it is a great place with many talented people and we extraordinarily pay more attention to sustainability, which stands out from many other factories.
For us, sustainability is the number one aspect to have in mind. We always want to do our best to make our products as sustainable as possible, all the way from design idea to sampling, production, and freight to our finished products.
We want to create bedding with a timeless design that will never go out of style, in high-quality fabrics that are durable and easily maintained, and as kind as possible to our planet.
Based on the number of silkworms in 1 cocoon, these cocoons can be divided into single cocoons and double cocoons. A single cocoon is a cocoon formed by 1 silkworm; a double cocoon is a cocoon formed by 2 or more silkworms spinning silk floss together. A double cocoon is usually larger in size and more stretchy and fluffy, making it the best choice for making silk duvet.
Without boiling cocoon, the strands would be brittle which breaks them into smaller pieces and would make it difficult to spin threads out of the cocoon.
Timing is also the key to boiling cocoons. An experienced artisan can judge by the look and touch to determine when it is the right time. If boiling for too long, it will result in a fragile and weak product, yet not boiling long enough will produce a tougher fiber.
