Imagine Cleopatra painting her eyelids with kohl and Venus staining her lips with poppy petals, dabbing her wrists with crushed Jasmine. Nature generously indulges our desire for beauty and Silk is one of Nature's most miraculous gifts.
Legend has it that silk was discovered by the Chinese Empress Leizu in 2,696 BC. While enjoying her midday tea, under a mulberry tree in the imperial gardens, a cocoon fell into her cup and unraveled. The people of Ancient China chose to keep this heavenly fiber a secret from the world for 2000 years.
We already know about silk's luxurious texture, but the secret, after all these millennia, is still not out about silk's incredible health and anti-aging benefits. Silk allows your skin to retain its natural emollients. Your skin and hair will glide across the surface of your Leizu. As if you needed more reasons to love silk, it should be noted that it helps regulate your body temperature and has hypoallergenic properties.
The Leizu collection is made from 100% silk charmeuse, each one-of-a-kind piece hand dyed using flowers and other botanicals.
All of our goods are dyed in house, without the use of chemicals and we proudly support and work in collaboration with local craftspeople in Virginia.
