No bleach, no machines, no chemical additives, the silk filling in Peony Box duvets is as pure as the day it was spun. Due to this handmade process, our silk duvets are incredibly light and durable. You will fall in love with their warmth, softness and soothing comfort.
This is a process handed down over hundreds of years: no bleach, no machines, no chemical additives. Unlike machine-made silk duvets treated with chemicals, which results in more fragile, loose and less durable silk, our 100% handmade process ensures that our duvets maintain all the natural benefits and properties of the silk.
Made from 100% long Mulberry silk
The most exquisite silk duvets are made of long and unbroken Mulberry silk sheets, which are stretched and hand-layered one by one in a criss-cross pattern. Mulberry silk is produced from silk worms, which feed on Mulberry leaves. Its filaments are finer and more consistent in width than Tussah silk, which makes it more suitable for use in silk fabric.
- An ecologically sound product
Our silk is harvested from silkworms which feed on natural and pesticide-free Mulberry leaves. Also there is no usage of chemicals during the production process. 100% pure and 100 % natural, all our duvets are Oeko-Tex accredited – click here for more information.
Our silk duvets are astonishingly light compared to other machine-made silk duvets. Thanks to our 100% handmade process during which no chemicals are used, the weight of a summer duvet is only 150g per square metre. The same process is also responsible for the layered net-like filling, which is a key feature of Peony Box duvets, and which provides easier airflow so we can achieve the same warmth as is found in other machine-made silk duvets weighing more.
Our silk filling is made by stretching out many mats of unspun silk to the size of the duvet. Hundreds of stretched silk sheets are then hand-layered to form an even and stable filling. Therefore, there is no need to add box-stitched squares to our duvets. More importantly, if the duvet were “quilted” in this way, it would lose a lot of its warmth, as the sewn lines would diminish insulation and become "cold lines" across the duvet.
