The interior fabric that rests gently over your eyes is 100% mulberry silk.

Mulberry Silk has also been proven to help your skin hold on moisture, so you are less likely to wake up with dry, flaky skin. This silk mask also has extra padding around the nose and cheekbone area that prevents unwanted light from leaking in.
The exterior fabric of the mask is also 100% natural Mulberry silk. The outside fabric does not make contact with the face; it simply defines the look and feel of the mask and has been selected specifically to withstand the rigours of travel.
Just released, this eye mask for side sleepers has a new and improved strap design, not just one strap but two straps. Both with a sliding band elastic strap, fully adjustable that allows you to get the perfect fit. The straps can be placed so one is above your ears, the other below to get maximum light blockage and comfort.
The straps are also both thin, so there is no additional bulk when laying on your side. Both these new style straps are Velcro free, so there is no risk of your hair getting snagged in the straps. The Silk Side Sleeper will easily fit heads between 18.5” to 25” in circumference.
Mulberry silk is THE highest quality silk available in the world, which also makes it the most expensive type of silk available! Talk about luxurious!
What makes it so expensive, and why is it superior to other types of silk?
Let me start by telling how mulberry silk is made, a process the Chinese developed thousands of years ago and have perfected, making them the world’s experts in producing the finest silk!
Mulberry silk is made from the silkworms of the Bombyx mori moth. The moth has one job to do, and that is to lay eggs. The silkworms may have a short life with their only purpose to be providing silk, but don’t fear, those sweet short lives are indeed pampered ones!
These marvellous little creatures may have a short life with their only purpose to be providing amazing silk, but don’t fear, those sweet short lives are indeed pampered ones! After it lays about 500 eggs, its job is finished, and it dies.
The tiny little silkworms, when born, are fed an exclusive diet of mulberry leaves 24 hours a day, 7 days a week. They’re quite fussy (not unlike many of us) and mulberry leaves are the only food the Bombyx mori moth chooses to eat.
After about a month of constant gorging on the mulberry leaves, the silkworms will have increased their weight about 10,000 times and will have built up enough energy to start spinning their cocoon. It takes anywhere from three to eight days for the silkworm to weave the cocoon.
The tiny pinpoint size eggs are kept at 65 degrees Fahrenheit with the temperature slowly and carefully raised to 75 degrees Fahrenheit to hatch the eggs.
In addition to the constant fresh supply of mulberry leaves available to them, their environment is strictly controlled to prevent them from being subjected to loud noises and strong odours such as those from fish and the human odour of sweat.
The resulting mulberry silk thread is the strongest natural fibre in the world, making it incredibly durable. A silk fibre the same diameter as a fibre of steel is stronger than the steel.
