Sustainable Silk

Luala Silk merges traditional craftsmanship heritage with contemporary inspiration and versatility. We are proud that our silk is made with sustainable organic silk- the finest silk that you can find in all of South East Asia. 
Farm Origins to You

Our silk is sourced directly from the farm, not the weaver.  We are involved in the entire process as the raw material moves through harvesting, spinning, weaving, dyeing/printing and finishing .  We do this to make sure every part of the process is controlled by us. By working in this way, we maintain the ethical manufacturing process and labor working conditions. This reduces our partners costs and keeps our people all along the way happy and motivated. More importantly, our customers are happy because our luxury silk items are affordable as our savings  are reflected in our lower prices.   

Less is more

Inspired by age-old silk making techniques which can be traced back to 16th century Vietnam,  we strive to preserve  this heritage.  This is not mass-produced silk. We place quality foremost from the first sketch to the final stitch. Each product is made to last, truly one of a kind, to be treasured for a long time.

Personal touch
We make silk in small batches with our in house dyeing technique using safe and natural ingredients. Fabrics are washed and steamed to avoid shrinking or fading.  We collaborate with small family businesses to produce the best kind of silk to be used for all of our bedding items and apparel.  Our silk is  handcrafted and available in limited quantities to ensure it’s as extraordinary as the culture that inspired it and the heart and hands of the makers that create our products.
Organic Silk
Our silk is completely cruelty free which mean it is produced without harming the silkworms. The silkworms hatch from the cocoons and become butterflies before the thread is unwound from the cocoon. In order for the caterpillars to grow inside the cocoon and then hatch out of it, the production takes about 2 weeks longer than conventional silk (which is totally not cruelty free). Since the caterpillars destroy the silk thread during hatching, the fibers must also be completely woven together by hand. This means that the threads are not continuous, resulting in a less delicate texture and a duller shine on the surface, require more laboring efforts to make.  Our dyeing process is hand made and we don't use any chemical and thus, preserves all positive health properties, which is direct contact with our skin.

Frequently Asked Questions

What is Silk Dupion?

Dupion silk is produced from two or more silkworms that spin a cocoon together. This makes a strong double and durable silk thread, usually resulting in a rough yarn and irregularity in sheerness or weight. Black specks that occasionally appear in the fabric are part of the original cocoon of the silkworm. Removing all of them would weaken the fabric. They are inherent to dupion silk fabric and should not be considered as defects in silk duvet. Only around 5% of mulberry silk cocoon is dupion. Dupion is more elastic and more fluffy than other types of silk cocoon. The characteristics of the dupion silk make it the most suitable material for our silk duvet. It takes around 750 silk cocoons to make 500g of silk floss.

What is Fibroin vs Sericin?

*Fibroin is composed of both non-essential and essential amino acids, with a particular concentration of alanine and glycine present, and these amino acids are then reabsorbed by the surrounding cells for new tissue regeneration. 

*Sericin is composed of 18 different amino acids, of which 32% is serine. Sericin is a biomolecule of great value as it has antibacterial, UV resistant, oxidative resistant and moisturizing properties. Sericin has been used in medicine and cosmetics. Due to its elasticity and tensile strength, along with a natural affinity for keratin, sericin is primarily used in medicine for wound suturing. When used in cosmetics, sericin has been found to improve skin elasticity and several anti-aging factors, including an anti-wrinkle property.

What is the difference between silk and other natural materials?

Silk is one of the strongest natural fibers, up to 1,300 metre in length, which gives it great strength. This makes it possible to weave very light fabrics, as even fine silk yarns are strong. Wool, cotton and linen yarns are made of short lengths of fibre which are overlapped at the ends and therefore not so strong. Silk is smooth and soft. In contrast to wool, silk is extruded on demand and has no cellular structure. This makes silk very smooth and sensuous to the touch. Under the microscope, you can see that wool is covered in scales like tiles on a roof, while linen appears to have joints similar to the nodes on a bamboo. Wool, cotton and linen are all growing fibres and they all have a cellular structure.

What is hand craft mulberry silk wadding?

Hand crafted silk wadding has a long history  since 16th in Vietnam. They are used to fill winter coat or quilt/duvet for emperor and high class people. Silk crafting requires time, patience and carefulness, passed from generation to generation but now at risk of disappearing. Now, it's only carried by a small group of artisans in Vietnam

What is characteristics of natural real silk?

Highly absorbing, quick-drying, robust, shiny. It naturally fends off any allergy microbe or odor-causing bacteria. Silk is the strongest natural fiber of all and is even comparable to steel yarns in elastic strength. Silk has natural temperature-regulating characteristics which means that the fabric feels warm in the winter and cool in the summer.
