You might wonder why do you want to buy your silk products from BASK?

Let us tell you what differentiate us from all the players out there. 💕

Are you ready? 👇

 

 

 

First, let's talk about the our signature BASK™ fabric.

We use BASK™ fabric for all our silk pillowcases, silk scrunchies/hair ties and silk sleep masks. All the BASK™ fabric is OEKO-TEX® Standard 100 Certified and our product class is Product class I: Articles for babies and toddlers. (The highest and safest level of product class)

 


What does OEKO-TEX® Standard 100 Certified mean to you?

The Standard 100 tests check for prohibited azo dyes, formaldehyde, nickel etc, and other chemicals that are harmful to human, and this check includes threads, buttons, zippers and linings used.

So, you can rest assured that products that passed the stringent check of STANDARD 100 by OEKO-TEX® is free of harmful substances. It stands for customer confidence and high product safety.

 

 

 

What does Product Class 1 mean to you?

The OEKO-TEX® laboratory tests include around 100 test parameters and take into account the intended use of the textiles. The more intensive the skin contact of a textile product, the stricter the limit values for each product class.

For the silk fabric to be qualified as Product Class 1,  the textile (every thread, button and other accessories, need to be tested for harmful substances and meet the most stringent criteria) so that the product will be safe for more intensive the skin contact of a textile product for even babies and young toddlers.

Pay extra attention to this, mummies or soon-to-be mummies. As a mummy ourselves, we understand how important this is. 🙌

Generally, the most common product class for other silk fabrics in the market is Product Class II.

unique luxurious look at baskinsilk -BASK™

We use 6A grade raw silk for our BASK™ silk fabric production. 

Like diamond 💎 , the raw silk has a grade. The raw silk is divided into 6A, 5A, 4A, 3A, 2A, A, B, C, D, E, and F, a total of 11 grades. The most commonly used 6 grades are from 6A to A.

6A is the grade indicating the finest quality for the raw silk.
Just like diamonds, only the finest quality delivers the most brilliant shine. ✨

6A Grade silk is the longest silk fiber. The long strand is one of the important factors that makes the silk fabric much more luxurious looking, shiny and durable.

To achieve the highest 6A Grade, it takes skilled and seasoned professionals to meticulously produce and select the most premium silk cocoons for silk fabric production.

 

 

A comparison between BASK™ Pearl White Silk Pillowcase and silk pillowcase fabric from other brands.

As you can see, BASK™ silk is non-grainy, has incredibly smooth fabric surface and it also features unique luxurious sheen/shine even under normal lighting.

The elastane we used is imported elastane that is highly elastic and highly durable to ensure it provides just the right amount of hold without being too tight or too loose.
