Investing in a high-momme weight pure silk pillowcase is a fabulous idea. Similar to thread count in cotton sheets, momme is a weight measurement used in silk fabric; higher momme silk is denser and softer, making it ideal for luxurious, comfortable rest. Thirty momme weight silk is typically the heaviest weight fabric used for pure silk bedding and pillowcases. A 30 momme weight pillowcase is the ultimate in luxury; it will look and feel lustrous; help you sleep better; keep your hair and skin well-hydrated; prevent facial wrinkles and hair breakage; and protect sensitive skin
Once you've decided that a 30 momme weight silk pillowcase is for you (click here for more on choosing the right momme weight), your next step is selecting among the various brands. At Mulberry Park Silks, we believe in providing clients all the information they need to make the best decision when buying a silk pillowcase. This includes details such as type of silk; quality of silk; environmental certification; price; and more. Any reputable silk manufacturer will be completely transparent about these factors; you can learn more about how to shop for a silk pillowcase here.
Evaluating high-quality, 30 momme count silk pillowcases can be a bit confusing for even the most seasoned linen shopper, as the differences among brands can be quite subtle. Let's take a closer look and compare two popular 30 momme silk pillowcases: Mulberry Park Silks and Fishers Finery to determine which offers the best quality and value.
Fishers Finery 30 Momme Silk Pillowcase, Standard
Fishers Finery Pillowcase Quality
Fishers Finery silk pillowcase in 30 momme is made from pure mulberry silk in Grade 6A. The fabric is soft and luxurious, and certified STANDARD 100 by OEKO-TEX® which means that every component of the item has been independently tested and certified safe for human health. Fishers Finery pillowcases are machine or hand washable; the website features detailed washing instructions.
Fishers Finery Pillowcase Design
Fishers Finery 30 momme pillowcase in standard design features a French seam and an envelope closure that measures six inches to hold the pillow securely in place. There is an issue, however, with the size. The Fishers Finery standard size silk pillowcase is listed as measuring 20 x 28 inches; when we measured the pillowcase for ourselves, it measured only 20 x 24.5 inches. This means that a standard size pillow would actually have to be compressed into this pillowcase. This pillowcase comes in four colors: Natural White (undyed), Silver, Taupe, and Light Blue.
Fishers Finery Company / Companion Products
Fishers Finery appears to be a lifestyle brand that sells clothing, jewelry, accessories, home and travel gifts as well as silk pillowcases and accessories. The company does NOT sell silk sheets or other silk bedding such as duvet covers or shams. The 30 momme pillowcase is also marketed as part of the company's "Black Label" collection that includes silk pillowcase and cashmere accessories.

Our Recommendation: Mulberry Park Silks 30 momme
In many respects, the Fishers Finery and Mulberry Park Silks 30 momme silk pillowcases are quite similar (quality and grade of silk, type of closure, environmental certification). And when Fishers Finery is on "sale" it is a bit more affordable.
However, we have a few concerns with Fishers Finery. First, the company is mistaken about the actual size of its Standard pillowcase, which measures 3.5 inches shorter in length than advertised. Second, Fishers Finery is a lifestyle/fashion/home brand that also sells silk pillowcases (admittedly of high quality). However, there is no indication that they are experts in silk, and they do not carry silk sheets. A look at their website also shows that all of their merchandise (across every category) is discounted to varying percentages. This leads us to distrust their pricing practices.
Mulberry Park Silks is dedicated exclusively to selling luxury silk bedding and accessories. Silk pillowcases and bedding is our passion, and we are experts. We offer a full range of silk items designed to coordinate and complement one another. Our pricing structure is consistent and fair, and our sizing is to industry standards. Moreover, we are happy to speak with you to answer any and all questions you have about our silk; we will even provide complementary fabric swatches for you to review in advance of your purchase to ensure that you are completely satisfied.
Finally, we welcome the chance to be evaluated against any competitor in the market. You can see how we compare to Blissy silk pillowcases here and Slip silk pillowcases here.
