Icon Silk has been created as a beauty, sleep and wellness brand concentrating on improving people’s lives through the motivation of self-care.
While we intend to create quality products we also care for environment and our planet.
Silk is a natural fiber that has less impact on the environment than many other fabrics.
It’s a renewable resource, it comes from nature and goes back to nature, it can biodegrade, and uses less water, chemicals, and energy than many other fibers.
Our silk fabrics have OEKO-TEX Standard 100 certification, which confirms that every ingredient including our silk, dyes and thread are tested for harmful substances.
We utilize excess cropped pieces from silk sleepwear and pillowcases to produce our silk scrunchies on the purpose of reducing our fabric waste as much as possible. In this way, we obtain stylish hair accessories with this sustainable solution.
We believe in the importance of quality and using natural and sustainable fibers. We also believe in quality over quantity. We produce small, compiled collections that avoid mass production, overconsumption and waste.
We believe that everyone should enjoy the luxury and advantages of silk. That’s why we priced our silk products reasonably as much as we can.
BENEFITS OF SILK
As a company carrying on business in the silk industry for more than 20 years, we believe that silk is the most loved and valuable fabric. Mulberry Silk, known as ‘the Queen of Fibers’ has unique characteristics that place it at the top:
• Silk is ideal for your skin.
• Silk keeps you warm in winter and cool in summer.
• Silk is soft, flexible and lustrous.
• Silk is strong and resistant.
• Silk is naturally hypoallergenic.
Silk has brought us comfort and beauty for thousands of years and it will always remain as the most precious natural fiber for us.
The compound of silk is very similar to our human skin, they both possess 18 amino acids in common. For this reason, we recommend our customers to treat silk in the same way as we treat our skin, they are both so gentle.
• Just as our skin silk can’t tolerate high temperatures.
• Just as our skin does not like alkaline, silk does not like alkaline detergent.
• Just as our skin silk can’t stand suffering; it shouldn’t be rubbed strongly or squeezed.
The best care of silk is hand washing:
Dip your silk product in cold water under 30 degrees, add an adequate amount of silk detergent and soak it there for 5-10 minutes (no longer than 30 minutes). Rinse it well with cold water. Never twist it. Hang it or lay flat to dry. Avoid direct sunlight. Iron it in low heat or steam. If your silk product fades after a long-term use, soak it in water with a few drops of white vinegar for a few minutes.
