This is why we welcome the chance to compare ourselves with other products in the market.

    Comparing 22 Momme Pillowcases: Ours vs. THX Silk

    In this blog, we’ll be comparing the Mulberry Park Silks 22 momme weight* pillowcase with the 22 momme pillowcase from THX Silk. We’ll take a deep dive into the quality, feel, features and pricing of each product. We want you to shop smart for silk and get the best value for your money.

    *Momme count is a unit of weight measurement for silk. A higher momme weight silk pillowcase or silk sheet set will have proportionately more silk in it and the individual silk fibers will be thicker. In this way, momme is similar to thread count for a cotton pillowcase or sheets.

    THX Silk Pillowcase

    THX Silk Quality

    THXSILK pillowcases are made from 100 mulberry silk of high quality (6A). The pillowcase is OEKO-TEX® Standard 100 certified safe from harmful chemicals and available in eleven colors: Grey, Pearl White, Charcoal, Champagne, Charming Pink, Metallic Gold, Black, Purple, Emerald Green, Red, and Navy. THXSILK pillowcases are machine washable with care instructions found on the label inside.

    THX Silk Design

    For purposes of this review, we are evaluating the 22 momme pillowcase which is ONLY available in hidden zipper closure (the envelope closure style is a pillow sham with a decorative flange, not a pillowcase, which is meant to be slept on). The seams are plain. The zipper closure seems to be of adequate quality and there were no obvious loose threads to get caught in the zipper. We find it odd that the company does not offer a 22 momme regular pillowcase with an envelope closure, as not everyone likes the zipper closure.

    THX Silk Company / Companion Products

    THXSILK appears to be a wide-ranging silk bedding, accessories and sleepwear company. They have a number of offerings across these categories, including silk sheets, duvet covers, body pillows, pajamas, and fashion and hair accessories. Silk sheets and pillowcases come in 19, 22, and 25 momme weights with a newly added silk pillowcase (also zipper closure) in 30 momme. Along with solid colors, THX Silk offers novelty print silk pillowcases in 19 momme weight.

    This company is based in China, with all items shipping directly from (we assume) a silk factory. This brings a level of complication when it comes to shipping, returns, and customer service. Additionally, the company's website and communications seem to present the company as being headquartered in Colorado while also claiming to make their silk pillowcases in-house; this can be misleading by leaving the impression that the silk is made in the United States.

    THX Silk Price

    THX Silk 22 momme Queen pillowcase retails for $59.98

    THX Silk Shipping

    Bear in mind that ALL THX Silk products are shipped from China. The free, standard shipping for a pillowcase can take as long as 7 to 10 business days once it ships from China; the website notes that holidays and weekends are not considered business days. This means that your order could realistically take two weeks in "real time," without accounting for any transit delays.

    Alternatively, you can opt for expedited shipping, which costs $15.99 unless your order is greater than $249 in which case it is free. This means that ordering a single pillowcase will cost you a total of $75, including shipping. This is where working with a China-based company like THX Silk can be a little tricky and offset the ostensibly “lower” price of the pillowcase. 

    Bottom line: if you want your pillowcase in a reasonable timeframe, you are going to have to pay the $15.99 shipping and hope for the best.

    THX Silk Customer Service

    Similar to shipping, working to obtain customer service from a China-based company may prove difficult. THX Silk offers an email and live chat option, but no way to call the company and speak to an individual with questions or issues. There is no swatch sample program.

    • Eleven color options
    • Line includes silk bedding, sleepwear, and accessories

    Our Recommendation: Mulberry Park Silks

    A pure mulberry silk pillowcase Mulberry Park Silks is a better value than THX Silk for a number of reasons:

    While both are equal in terms of quality of silk used, Mulberry Park Silks offers a choice of envelope or zipper closures.

    Now let’s discuss price, shipping, and customer service. While the THX Silk 22 momme pillowcase is around $15 less than the 22 momme pillowcase from  Mulberry Park Silks, these numbers are misleading. Why? This is very important: you will have to pay a $15.99  shipping charge to receive your pillowcase within a two-week time frame. THX Silk ships from China. At Mulberry Park Silks, your items are shipped from our Connecticut warehouse via well-established courier companies. There is no mystery, no confusing pricing, and no chance of an international delay.

    Most importantly, we are a U.S. based company that is committed to the finest customer service. You can email or call us with any question or concern. If you want to speak with someone, our design team is available. We will even send you swatches to review at home before you purchase your silk items. Your experience as a valued member of the Mulberry Park Silks family matters to us personally and we take great pride in serving our clients.
