This luxurious silk shirt is made from the smoothest, softest fabric imaginable- 100% pure organic silk. Silk is perfect for wearing right next to your baby's skin. A pure silk shirt is wonderful either on its own or as a base layer underneath other layers of clothing. The shirt features an envelope neck opening so you can easily dress your baby.
This pure filament silk (organic 'Bio-silk') is processed in a way that preserves the natural luster and smooth, reflective surface of silk, so this baby shirt will have the smooth, 'silky' texture that comes to mind that most people associate with of silk. This is quite different from the texture of bourette silk or raw silk, from which some of Alkena's other baby products are made.
Made by Sichuan Alkena, this shirt is 100% certified organic silk. Alkena silk is the only silk in the world that is certified organic. The benefit of organic silk for your baby is that there are no chemical residues left on the finished garment following processing.
The quality of Alkena silk is second to none, and silk is one of the most ideal options for baby clothing. Silk is wonderful for the skin, particularly for sensitive baby skin. Silk is soft, gentle, and truly luxurious. It is ideal for year-round wear, helping to regulate the body’s temperature and keeping your baby cool during summer and warm during winter. Silk is both insulating and breathable. Silk also resists dirt and odors quite well, another reason it’s an excellent choice for babies.
All of Alkena’s processes, including knitting, weaving, dyeing, printing and sewing are annually inspected and monitored by IMO as against Global Organic Textile Standard. Sichuan Alkena focuses on dyestuff quality and is environment-friendly. The Alkena dyeing mill utilizes Clariant reactive dyestuff free from heavy metals, toxin and AOX.
