Silk is certainly the most precious of the raw materials used in making a mattress. The sum of its “natural” qualities speaks for itself. The Tussah silk that we use comes from the thread of the cocoons produced by different species of wild caterpillars in India, China, and Japan. The woven thread offers this famous silkiness, luxuriousness, and sensuousness.
Among other qualities, the silk has hygroscopic and thermoregulatory properties, which allow it to absorb up to 30% of its own weight in water without feeling damp. It also disperses heat, which creates a feeling of refreshment.
