Miraculous silk - Sophie Doyle
Silk is a timeless staple to any woman's waredrobe effortlessly elegant, it holds a certain appeal like no other fabric can. Breathable in even the hottest Summer it's a miraculous, luxe fabric that makes work dressing a breeze.
The challenge is always how to take care of it. After a brief stint attempting to source beautiful, washable fabrics and coming up with only unnatural fibres that didn't breathe, I ended up buying bulk Reiss silk tops. And washing them. Heaven forbid. Silk is not a plant fibre in the way cotton is. It's actually a protein, much like skin or hair, and needs particular attention and care.
Washing silk can ruin it. Which is why I jumped for joy when I discovered The Fable. Washable silk. I'll let that sink in for a moment.
The genius doesn't end there. This silk is ethically sourced, making sure both the environment, and the tailors producing it are well looked after. Working no more than 8 hours a day, and the silk is manufactured in Jaipur, India employing a small family run factory.the tailors are paid nearly twice the living wage and work in only safe and comfortable conditions.
Behind this amazing business is a gorgeous woman named Sophie, who having worked with L'oreal Luxury, and faced a problem we all have, and like the start of every brilliant business, set out to solve it.
(especially of fabric or clothes) able to be washed without shrinkage or other damage.
