When you hear words like timeless, classic, and enduring, you might think of things that span the decades. Nothing speaks to this more than silk. For more than 2,000 years, the Chinese kept the secret of silk to themselves. However, world silk production has approximately doubled during the last 30 years, despite having man-made fibers developed to replace it. This natural protein fiber is woven into the stunning textiles. In addition to clothing, silk is being used for upholstery, wall coverings, rugs, bedding, wall hangings, and even window treatments.
Bringing Silk Into a Room
Silk is prized for its luxurious natural beauty. It is also considered the strongest of nature’s fibers. You can introduce silk to your home design by adding designer silk throw pillows, which can bring selected colors together for a complete, coordinated room. Or you could reupholster an old chair, loveseat, or ottoman. Because of silk’s inherent elasticity and resilience, your custom pillows keep their shape and beauty. However, moisture can weaken its fibers, so be sure to dry-clean your silk pillows.
