WHAT IS MOMME?
Silk Momme, actually pronounced as moe-me, is a unit of measurement for silk fabric. It is a measure of the weight of silk fabric. The more weight that a silk has, the longer the silk will last.
WHAT MOMME ARE YOUR SILK SEA PILLOWCASES?
Silk Sea pillowcases and eye masks are made with the finest quality 22 momme 100% mulberry silk.
HOW DO I CARE MY SILK PRODUCTS?
All of our Silk products have been made with a high 6A grade quality silk. You can wash your silk in the washing machine on a cold wash cycle, using a wash bag to protect the silk from other garments in the wash i.e. zips, velcro etc. Always use a PH neutral liquid. However to prolong the silk’s natural lustre cold hand wash is recommended. Avoid the use of tumble dryer. The more you care for your silk the longer lasting the benefits.
CAN I IRON MY SILK SEA PILLOWCASE?
Yes, always use a cool iron and iron your pillowcase inside out.
WHAT SIZE ARE YOUR PILLOWCASES?
Our Pillowcases are the international Standard Queen size 51cm x 76cm
WHAT IS THE DIFFERENCE BETWEEN SATIN AND SILK?
Satin is not technically a fabric it is a finish. Most Satin pillowcases are synthetic polyester that may feel nice and look shiny but does not have the same benefits as silk. Where silk I a natural fibre which breathes, satin is petroleum based which sweats against skin.

WHAT IS OKEO-TEX STANDARD 100?
The STANDARD 100 by OEKO-TEX® is a worldwide consistent, independent testing and certification system for raw, semi-finished, and finished textile products at all processing levels, as well as accessory materials used.
Since its introduction in 1992, the central focus of the STANDARD 100 by OEKO-TEX® has been the development of test criteria, limit values and test methods on a scientific basis. On the basis of its comprehensive and strict catalogue of measures, with several hundred regulated individual substances, the STANDARD 100 by OEKO-TEX® takes account of:
- Important legal regulations, such as banned Azo colourants, formaldehyde, pentachlorophenol, cadmium, nickel, etc.
- Numerous harmful chemicals, even if they are not yet legally regulated.
- Requirements of Annexes XVII and XIV of the European Chemicals Regulation Reach as well as of the ECHA SVHC Candidate List insofar as they are assessed by expert groups of the OEKO-TEX® Association to be relevant for fabrics, textiles, garments or accessories. Discussions and developments that are considered to be relevant are taken into account as quickly and effectively as possible through updates to the STANDARD 100 by OEKO-TEX® requirements.
- Requirements from the US Consumer Product Safety Improvement Act (CPSIA) regarding lead.
- Numerous also environmentally relevant substance classes
With its decades of experience, the OEKO-TEX® Standard 100 therefore contributes to high and effective product safety from a consumer’s point of view. Test criteria and limit values in many cases go far beyond applicable national and international standards. Extensive product checks and regular company on-site visits also ensure that the industry has a globally sustainable awareness of the responsible use of chemicals. With this concept, the OEKO-TEX® Standard 100 has taken on a pioneering role for many years.
Laboratory tests and product classes
The OEKO-TEX® tests for harmful substances are fundamentally based on the respective purpose of the textiles and materials. The more intensive the skin contact of a product and the more sensitive the skin, the stricter the human-ecological requirements that need to be complied with.
