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 infants, young toddlers.

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

The fabric we used in our products are of 6A Grade - the highest quality silk you can find in the market. 

Like diamond 💎 , silk has a grade. Silk is graded in 6A, 5A, 4A or 3A..... Just like diamonds, only the finest quality delivers the most brilliant shine. ✨

6A Grade Silk is made from the longest silk fibres available, which makes the silk fabric much more luxurious and durable. To achieve the highest 6A grade, a lot of efforts need to be put into to select the most suitable silk cocoon for silk fabric production.


A comparison between BASK™ silk fabric and silk pillowcase fabric from other brands.

As you can see, BASK™ silk is non-grainy, has incredibly smooth fabric surface and it is extra shiny even under normal lighting.
