As a yoga teacher and massage therapist, the concept was inspired by my own passion for natural beauty and a strong belief in the powers of holistic therapies, nutrition and relaxation. These are the ‘secrets’ that were used by our grandmothers to promote wellbeing and maintain a youthful appearance, the way that nature intended. Unfortunately, so much of their potential has been forgotten in the modern world, as more people turn to expensive creams or invasive techniques to remedy hectic lifestyles and achieve an impossible ideal.
As well as truly understanding how effective the holistic approach can be, I also love how luxurious fabrics like silk feel against the skin, the way they calm the senses and soothe the spirit. I always wear an eye mask to bed and that’s where my product range started from.
Our Vintage Japanese silk eye masks have become best sellers and we now offer a luxurious selection of naturally-inspired relaxation and skincare products using the highest quality silks, semiprecious stones, cashmere and scents. Everything is designed with beauty in mind, meaning they look stunning, feel exquisite and leave you feeling radiant. Best of all they relax, restore and rejuvenate in a way that encourages you to embrace your natural beauty.
The products are a lovely way to treat yourself and they make great gifts for friends. After all everyone deserves to look and feel their best and there’s nothing wrong with stealing some of nature’s secrets once in a while.
The mother of French actress and singer Jane Birkin certainly knew how restorative sumptuous silk could be, telling her “when you’ve got nothing left… get into silk underwear and start reading Proust.” Now that’s a piece of advice we’re happy to follow!
