The art of silk experienced great splendor in Calabria.

In Catanzaro, the cultivation of mulberry trees, the breeding of silkworms and the weaving of precious yarns were extremely widespread in ancient times.

Thanks to the passion and commitment of three young Calabrians, this wonderful old tradition has been brought back to life.

  • Miriam

  • Giovanna

  • Domenico

Miriam has a great love for nature. Giovanna, with her sincere smile, loves art and simplicity. Domenico grew up raising silkworms.

Together they decided to use the resources of their land and revived the old production chain of mulberry and silk cultivation.
Their daily work contributes to the growth of the territory and its sustainable development, while protecting environment and landscape.

Here in the heart of Magna Graecia we still find unspoilt places where nature reigns.
1.5 hectares of land belong to the breeding of silkworms, along with relics of silk history and ancient looms.

If you are in Calabria, this is your chance to see their work and caterpillar first hand and to attend a workshop on cocoons and looms.

Can’t you visit Calabria in the near future?
Then let yourself be inspired by their passion and creativity right at your home!

Silk Cocoons for your skin

Miriam, Giovanna and Domenico have developed this sericin-based facial care kit for cosmetic lovers.
Sericin is one of the most important silk proteins for cosmetics.
This protein is very similar to the keratins that make up our skin and hair. Once applied, it binds to these components very effectively.

  • 6 cocoons of pure silk for a deep and delicate facial treatment
  • 4 handcrafted soap bars with sericin, silk cocoon, vegetable glycerin ph 7.5-8.5 and natural dyeing extracts

With this kit, you experience the effect of sericin on your skin.

Sericin makes the skin radiant and smooth, gently removes excess sebum, helps prevent blackheads and skin rashes, promotes skin absorption of medical devices and topical cosmetics and creates a moisturizing film that regulates the skin’s pH.

Let yourself be fascinated by this ancient tradition and enjoy the benefits of seritin.
