At LILYSILK, we want to inspire people to live a better life and more sustainable lifestyle. Our care for one another and the planet is what drives us. LILYSILK, live spectacularly!
The fashion industry is the second-largest polluter in the world after the oil industry. It accounts for 10% of global carbon emissions, is the second-largest consumer of the world’s water supply, and pollutes the oceans with microplastics. Fast fashion, which encourages people to buy the latest items to stay on-trend, only adds to the environmental cost.
At LILYSILK, we believe that zero waste can make a difference.
Change doesn’t happen overnight, but we will do our best to start small and gradually move towards more significant changes.
Our silk is sourced from Mulberry trees which require less water than cotton to grow, and they are not sprayed with pesticides to protect the soil.
We encourage customers to buy smarter by investing in better pieces that can be styled into diverse looks and therefore worn more frequently. We only make as many items as we can sell. Fabric remains are used to make accessories such as silk eye masks, and scrunchies.
Our products are classic and simple, designed to be used for a long time to reduce waste.
We produce items made from natural fibers instead of synthetic. Synthetic fibers are made from fossil fuel making production much more energy-intensive.
The natural fibers we use are degradable and only take 1 to 5 years to decompose, which is x50 times faster than synthetic materials.
