The entrepreneurs behind Europe’s first carbon-neutral rally have used their time during the coronavirus lockdown to fuel their passion for self-care, launching a brand new business dedicated to a luxurious new range of London-designed, hypoallergenic and antibacterial bedding.
MayfairSilk, which specialises in elegant 100% mulberry silk bed linen and sleep accessories, is aimed at those looking to elevate the feel good factor that comes from a good night’s rest.
The physical and mental health benefits of silk have been well documented with high quality bedding long recommended by leading skin care specialists and renowned Harley Street doctors.
Dr. Terry, a renowned Integrative Skin & Hormone specialist, says silk “is a natural fabric which doesn’t crease the skin so it prevents the formation of static lines (wrinkles) when we sleep. It also doesn’t absorb moisture from the skin like cotton does and so it prevents the skin and hair from getting dry and dehydrated. The luxurious feeling is an extra bonus to help one sleep better.”
Following a long period of lockdown in the UK, households are increasingly evaluating personal care, and looking for new solutions to support a new work-from-home lifestyle while taking care of their skin.
MayfairSilk’s natural, breathable fabric helps to maintain the skin’s hydration levels and can regulate body temperature, making it easy to stay cool in the warm summer months – while helping people get a good night’s sleep.
In conversation with Darshana Ubl
MayfairSilk co-founder, Darshana Ubl said, “I have long been passionate about self-care and with our Verve Rally events postponed due to lockdown, I found that I had time on my hands to really explore this interest. MayfairSilk blossomed as a result but it speaks to a very real need.”
“Having slept in silk for years and experiencing first-hand the positive difference it has made to my hair, skin and sleep, I decided one night that I wanted to let the world in on my secret. I shared this with my partner, Marcus and from that moment on we started our journey into textiles. Sourcing and developing the finest fabrics and finishing processes, colour palette, and hand finished silk designs to create a timeless collection with unexpected details that please the senses.”
MayfairSilk’s premium bed linens and accessories include elegantly styled, silky pillowcases, fitted sheets, flat sheets and duvet covers – all hand finished for an extra touch of indulgence. Exquisite linens have been carefully selected by MayfairSilk with a specialised weave and finishing process, so they feel soft and luxurious to the touch, with a sublime matt lustre. An elegant colour palette includes classic ivory, charcoal, pastel blue, soft and midnight blue.
A curated collection of lifestyle items includes eye masks, hair ties and home décor in sophisticated prints; hummingbird, garden and black and gold roses.
MayfairSilk’s linens also ensure long-lasting resistance against dust mites, mould, and mildew, helping to maintain strict levels of hygiene and cleanliness while also being kind to skin, naturally breathable and hypoallergenic. The Oeko-Tex certified material is sustainable and biodegradable, while the tight weave ensures strength and durability.
MayfairSilk is currently offering worldwide delivery options on all products with free delivery on orders over £50 in the UK, and over £100 in the European Union. International orders of £130 or more will also receive free delivery.
