It’s been rather quiet around here the last week or so and I apologize! I was in a wedding over the weekend and was extremely busy with family and other obligations. But don’t worry today I am back with a nice post for you guys!
I am always on the chase for fabulous gifts that can be used for the bride or bridesmaids. Today’s idea comes RESTore Silk, a luxury silk pillow case company that takes ‘sleeping beauty’ to another level. If you don’t know silk pillow cases definitely extend the life of your hairstyles, reduces hair breakage and also provides a better sleep experience. Check out my informative Q & A with the founder, Jenelle Jones.
CBB: Tell more more about your company and what you do?
We help women wake up flawless! RESTore Silk manufactures luxury silk pillowcases, handcrafted in New York City.
CBB: What is the creative process like for developing your line of pillowcases?
There were two major factors in the concept for the pillowcases: quality craftsmanship and aesthetics. We wanted something that was both durable and beautiful. So after a year and a half of research and development, we committed to have everything sourced and manufactured stateside then finalized a design that was European-inspired with the envelope closure and French-seamed edges. Our range of colors also needed to appeal to various decor themes.
CBB: What are the benefits of sleeping on a pure silk pillowcase?
Silk pillowcases help extend the life of your hair style, diminish frizz, retain moisture and help your skin stay soft and supple. Especially in the warmer months with added heat and humidity, sleeping on a silk pillowcases also keep your skin cool throughout the night and help you maximize your nightly beauty regimen so that creams and conditioners are even more effective by not being dried out by cotton or satin. The material is highly breathable and hypoallergenic.
CBB: How does one take care of their silk pillowcase?
Silk is a lovely natural fiber that is easy to care for. We recommend hand washing with mild detergent and then allowing it to air dry in a cool area. That preserves the sheen and softness of the material.
CBB: What are some ways a bride or bridesmaid can incorporate these into the wedding planning process?
RESTore Silk pillowcases make great bridal party gifts! We offer personalized monogramming and custom colors so the bride can find one to compliment her wedding palette. Our pillowcases have also been gifted at bridal showers. Every bride wants to look her absolute best on her big day and what you sleep on is key to their preparation. Along with a healthy diet, exercise, and increased water intake, our silk pillowcases will help their hair and skin retain moisture, volume, softness, and shine.
CBB: What’s next for your company?
Our next venture is to expand our color palette for the Fall and then add more beauty related items to our product offerings.
