Silk charmeuse, a french satin fabric, is one of the finest, most fiber-dense silks on the market. Wonderfully soft and shiny, charmeuse perfect for beauty and wellness. It is naturally hypoallergenic, thermoregulatory, and prevents hair knotting and bedhead. Best for curly, natural hair and sensitive skin.
Shibori, a traditional Japanese resist-dye technique, creates organic shapes and patterns dyed directly into a textile. Think a more sophiscated tie-dye using rope or string rather than rubber bands.
