WE ANSWER: what you need to know about silk?

The most frequently asked question about silk is: what is the difference between MULBERRY SILK and SATIN.

WE ANSWER: Silk is a fiber, whereas satin is a weaving technique applied to many different types of fabrics including polyester, nylon, acetate, rayon, silk, and cotton. However, the term satin is typically used to describe a synthetic material that is woven in this technique. Satin is most often made from polyester or acetate. A hint : always look at the fabric composition! That is what will tell you exactly if you chosen the right product.

Mulberry is the highest quality of silk you can find. Think of it as the Egyptian cotton equivalent of silk: The fibers are longer and more uniform so the fabric is smoother and more durable.

Does Silk feel cool to the touch?

WE ANSWER: Satin feels cool to the touch, whereas silk warms up with body heat in just minutes. For those who prefer to sleep on a cool surface, satin is the better & cheaper choice. However, in case if you are looking to prioritize healthy habits in your lifestyle, remember: pure silk is full of beneficial properties for your body.

Silk has a smooth, soft texture that is not slippery, unlike many synthetic fibers (source:

Silk is a one of the most sought after fabrics in the world. It is a timeless textile that is both luxurious and healthful. We started Ziptown with one simple mission: to design the highest quality silk items available and offer our beautiful products at an affordable price. After a year of meeting with silk manufacturers, we were satisfied that we had found the right manufacturing partner – which is a family factory, making the complete production cycle from the silkworms growing to sewing our products in one place, without outsourcing any of their operations to any third party. All of our products are made with 100% pure mulberry long strand silk fabric. The silk fabric used for our pillowcases have been OEKO-TEX® Certified (Standard 100) to be free of chemicals.

As we continue to meet with our manufacturing partners, we will be introducing more beautiful silk products in the months to come.

We are delighted to have you as our customer and invite you to contact us if you have any product feedback or questions.
