Silk Bedding: The Hallmark of Beauty and Luxury
There’s nothing better than sleeping on silk. Along with all the beauty, health, and wellness benefits, silk delivers a luxurious feel and a singularly comfortable night’s rest. One of the most important things we do at Mulberry Park Silks is educate our clients about why silk is a wonderful investment; we also spend a good bit of time explaining how to choose the best quality silk for their money.
In our view, getting the best value for your silk bedding dollar comes down to choosing a reputable silk manufacturer that delivers high-quality products; fair pricing; and a satisfying customer experience. Here’s what to look for:
1. High Quality Standards.
A reputable silk bedding company is committed to maintaining stringent quality standards in every aspect of their operations. The finest silk fabric on earth is made in China from mulberry silk fiber which is known for superior durability, strength and lustrous feel. Mulberry silk is then graded according to both letter and number, with the highest quality being 6A. Silk fabric also comes in a variety of weights, measured in momme; most commercially available silk bedding ranges between 19 and 30 momme in weight.
All Mulberry Park Silks products are made from 100% pure mulberry silk, Grade 6A.
With the above quality standards in mind, a reputable silk manufacturer will be entirely transparent regarding their silk’s origin, grading, production process, and weight measurements. Real silk will always be labeled 100% silk and the momme weight should be listed.
Mulberry Park Silks are clearly and truthfully labeled with information also available on our website.
Certifications and Authenticity.
Certifications and authenticity labels are strong indicators of a reliable silk bedding company. Look for certifications such Global Organic Textile Standard (GOTS) or STANDARD 100 by OEKO-TEX®, which ensure that the silk is independently tested to be safe from harmful chemicals and/or the company adheres to environmentally friendly practices.
All Mulberry Park Silks products are STANDARD 100 by OEKO-TEX® certified. Learn more here.
4. Customer Reviews and Testimonials.
Trustworthy silk bedding companies value their customers' satisfaction and foster a positive reputation. Before making a purchase, explore customer reviews and testimonials on the company's website or reputable review platforms, including Amazon. Pay attention to overall ratings, feedback on product quality, customer service, shipping, and returns.
Mulberry Park Silks silk pillowcase and silk sheet collections are well-reviewed on Amazon as well as on our own site.
5. Responsive Customer Service.
A reliable silk bedding company understands the importance of providing excellent customer service. All policies, including shipping, returns, and refunds are clearly articulated on the site. The customer service team is responsive, knowledgeable, and readily available to address any queries or concerns you may have. Look for multiple communication channels, such as phone, email, or live chat support (many offshore companies do not offer either live chat or telephone support, which can be quite problematic).
The Mulberry Park Silks customer service team (along with corporate offices and warehouse) are located stateside, in Branford, CT. If you wish, you can speak directly with a member of our team (we’re also happy to help via email or chat).
6. Fair Pricing.
While silk bedding is known for its luxurious appeal, fair pricing is an absolute essential. We encourage you to do your research and compare prices across brands. If you see a pillowcase or a silk bedding set where the price is dramatically lower than average, chances are it is NOT high-quality, pure silk (it’s likely satin sheets or a silk/polyester blend). A good rule: be wary of any pillowcase priced under $20. Silk bedding is an investment, but you need not overpay.
Mulberry Park Silks is committed to delivering the very best value for your silk bedding dollar. We are happy to explain the factors that go into our silk pricing . We sell our pure silk sheets as a silk sheet set or you can purchase the silk fitted sheet, flat sheet, and pillow case separately.
7. Clear Communication.
Along with having a website that is easy to understand and navigate, a good silk company will offer detailed information on its products including how best to care for them and how to make them last.
Mulberry Park Silks offers a robust website with a helpful blog featuring articles on all things silk-related , including washing and caring for your silk bedding and accessories.
Investing in luxurious silk bedding can transform your sleep experience, but it is crucial to choose a trustworthy and reliable silk bedding company. By considering a few key attributes—including quality standards, transparency, independent certifications, and more—you can confidently select the best silk sheets from a company that deserves your business, like Mulberry Park Silks.
