About our squares

What is silk twill and how to recognize it?
100% silk twill is the most hard-wearing of silk fabrics.
Twill structure adds an extra dimension to designs that are printed onto it.
Its structured matt surface, when combined with high quality silk fabric would result in bright, vivid and strong colours.
Silk Twill combines the utilitarian strength of the twill weaving technique with the natural strength of silk! It has a diagonal rib, kind of oblique stripes (this is how you recognize it!), while maintaining a smooth and soft texture.
The texture of twill makes colors play with light and gives an elegant glow to the scarf.
What is silk Momme? 
Momme is one of the factors used to determine the quality and value of silk.
Silk Momme, is a Japanese measure of the weight of silk fabric.
The more body (weight) that a silk has, the longer the shelf-life.

At Ivre de Soie we use 100% silk twill of 14 momme, to ensure durability while maintaining a smooth texture and a light to medium weight finished product that will still maintain its hand and original beauty for a long time.
What is Mulberry silk?
Mulberry silk is the highest quality silk available worldwide. What makes it so unique is its production process. Mulberry silk has its roots in China, where local farmers grow Mulberry trees and harvest the leaves for silkworms to feed on. The resulting cocoons are spun into raw silk fibers.
Because the silkworms are fed only Mulberry leaves, the resulting silk is some of the finest available in the market. Pure white in color and made up of individual long fibers,  it is more refined than other types of silk.

Products made from 100% Mulberry silk are among the most durable and produce the most luxurious silk goods.
In addition, it is 100% natural, hypoallergenic and odorless. Ivre de Soie silk square are made from mulberry silk.
Hand rolled hem
Historically, there were many different types of hems that were used on different types of fabric and for different purposes. All our squares are hand finished, using the hand roll hem technique, making each piece unique.
