"Twill silk" is a satin fabric with a twill weave, and the cloth surface has obvious diagonal lines. Twill silk is most easily misunderstood. People who come into contact with it for the first time often say that twill silk scarves are not soft enough (but this is compared to plain crepe satin). In fact, twill silk is a fabric commonly used by international big names (such as Hermes, GUCCI, etc.).

Making this natural raw material into personal clothing will help prevent skin diseases. Because silk is a protein fiber with good moisture absorption, good air permeability, strong dirt absorption and antibacterial ability, silk fibroin contains 18 kinds of amino acids that are beneficial to the human body. When silk clothing touches the skin, it can increase cell vitality, help the skin maintain the metabolism of the surface lipid membrane, keep the skin moisturized and smooth, and play a cosmetic role.
