Silk is the incomparable queen of textiles, once made only for royalty and the most powerful rulers. I’ve been intrigued by silk for as long as I can remember. Well, not just silk — silk scarves. There’s so much you can do with a silk scarf.

When I was a little girl, my mom would wrap my hair every night with a silk scarf. It was a comforting family tradition, and to this day, I don’t go to sleep without wrapping my hair. It’s important, especially if you have 4b hair like I do. Silk keeps your hair from breaking and prevents split ends. It also keeps the moisture in your hair while allowing your hair to breathe. Silk keeps you cool in the summer and warm in the winter. How could you not love this versatile fabric?

Before I relaxed my afro, I would wrap my hair before yoga class or my workout. It was great because my hair was up and out of my face. Silk is perfect when you don’t feel like doing anything with your hair. I’ve gone out many times with my hair wrapped and received many compliments. It frames the face so nicely; it’s like having a temporary face lift without the surgery.

Now that my hair is relaxed I still enjoy wearing my silk scarves. I like to wrap the silk around my hair as a headband after a rod and wet set. It’s really cool because I can make my hair big in the back and I’m getting another temporary face lift!

My love for silk inspired me to create my own accessories line with silk scarves and many other unique creations. My business partner and I hand paint and hand dye our silk scarves individually. Each piece is unique and one of a kind, just like you. What’s so special about these products is the versatility. You can wear it as a scarf, a headband, dress or belt.

The possibilities are endless.

There are so many wonderful ways to adorn yourself with silk. I can go on and on with ideas, but I suggest you try some of your own.

Love, Peace and Happy Holidays!
