Inspired by traditional yoga wear, we have created the perfect garment to keep you looking and feeling effortlessly graceful yet still comfortable. Silky 2.0 is the result of months of researching and experimenting with dozens of materials and techniques in order to reach the perfect blend of features and capabilities.

We developed Silky 2.0 specially for yoga enthusiasts who value the ancient yoga wear disciplines: made with natural fibers, loosen cut and light colours. Silky 2.0 is made of the softest and smoothest natural fibers we can find on Earth, ORGANIC SILK, which allows energy to flow smoothly without blockage, especially during yoga positions.

100% organic silk

Yoga is an activity that centralizes breathing. Yogis breathe with their nose, mouth, and skin, so a fabric that allows breathing through the skin is best suited for yoga. Made of 100% organic silk, Silky 2.0 is also super breathable, fast-drying, hypoallergenic, antimicrobial, and antifungal. With Silky 2.0, not only can you have yoga wear made of natural fibers that support all types of workouts, Silky 2.0 is also created with no chemicals used.

You know the clothes that claim to be made of silk that can be bought for 20-30 pounds? The cost of production of real organic silk makes it very difficult to keep the final product's price low. Only fake silk or fabric mixed with silk and other materials could cost lower than 40 pounds, not including all the taxes, retailing, human resources, etc. On the other hand, haute couture is more likely to be made with the best fabrics. But the downside is that you have to pay for the brand name and the luxurious mark up, not just for the product.

We are delivering the best quality silk yoga wear, without the luxury mark up, because we believe everyone should look and feel their best without breaking the bank.

Odorless – safe for skin

Silk thread is made from the cocoon, a composite fibroin coated with an adhesive sericin protein. As silk cocoons protect the silkworm from biotic and abiotic hazards during the immobile pupal phase of the life cycle of silkworms, it contains natural antibacterial and anti-fungal properties from 18 amino acids (*) and proteins.
18 amino acids: Glycocoll, leucine, methionine, Tyrosine A non-essential amino acid, histidine, threonine, alanine, isoleucine, tryptophan, cysteine, lysine, aspartic acid, valine, phenylalanine, proline, serine, glutamic acid, arginine

Suitable for Yoga moves

  • We have sewn line cuts in crotch and inner thigh in order to leave room for your legs to move from one yoga pose to another with ease.
  • The ankles feature drawstrings to prevent them from sliding down in many exercises that require you to hold your legs up in the air.
  • An extended cut in the shoulder and under the armpit promotes a free range of motion. There are two additional invisible slimming seams to flatter your feminine silhouette.
  • Our design features a princess drawstring waistband to fit all body types. Since Silky 2.0 has multi-layer construction, you never have to worry about your white yoga pants being see-through. This charming pair of yoga pants is flattering and easy to wear and pair well with tight and loose tops.
  • Smooth stitching prevents chafing and irritation. 

Stretchability 

Thanks to our unique threading techniques, the organic silk fabric exhibits viscoelastic behaviour, much like our skin and muscles, so you can be confident Silky 2.0 will always promote a free range of motion.

Natural colorants 

Our product is only dyed with natural dyes, which not only works as colorants, but they also help to maximize the effect of silk on skin, anti-oxidize, anti UV, and GREEN THE DYEING PROCESS. The process contains no chemicals since we decided to use natural dyes, creating zero waste. Each one of our Silky 2.0’s are beautifully handmade (sewing, embroidering, dyeing).

At the moment, Silky Vietnam is using avocado pits, coffee beans, and green tea leaves for the 2017 collection. The best part of using natural dyes is that it matures with age as it is exposed to sunlight & daily usage, it will develop different shades and patina, depending on the unique nature of your skin, body heat, and energy flow.

  • Avocado pits produce a lovely earthy pink shade. For our shirts, there are an average of 12 pits used. Not only is it a great antioxidant, it is also free from carcinogenic components. The colourant joins forces with natural cellular albumen in the silk to help speed up the metabolism of skin cells, reducing signs of aging and keeping natural moisture from your skin and body hair.
  • Green tea leaves bring up a medium of golden colours, they are used in our waistbands and drawstrings. Organic silk usually demonstrates good UV-protection levels. Undyed Green tea leaves, with its high UV absorbing property, is able to reflect effectively solar radiation, leveling up the UV-protection of Silky 2.0 to provide excellent protection.

Silky 2.0 is designed in Paris by artist Truong Tan Tan, and hand-tailored and embroidered by La Hang Ao Dai Art house team. Our artists are very talented and passionate about their craft. We envisioned and designed Silky, and with their help, they have brought our vision to life.

You can pick out any top or bottom from the collection to wear to yoga and you can even mix and match them with your other yoga outfits. Check out our rewards to get your own your Silky 2.0!

Silk 2.0 is threaded from the finest silk fiber, produced by the healthiest silkworms, only eating organic mulberry leaves. There was not a single chemical used to grow the leaves or feed the silkworms.

Because the most polluting process in the garment industry is dyeing, we dye our clothes with only natural colors. Our workers are healthy and happy, and so are you!


 

We need your support to kick-start the production of our first collection. We have started our development of Silky 2.0 with the support of many kind people in the silk industry. They understand our good will and support us in creating and strengthening an organic production chain in which the silk produced will be the finest of quality. We need the your help in order to bring our production to life and to support the silk farmers and workers in a long and ethical business journey.

Risks and challenges

Since we dyed the fabric directly in the source of color, it can lead to variation in colors. It is unique but it also can be slightly lighter or darker than your expectation. Moreover, we also understand that any circumstance may take place and make the production take longer than it should be. For example, as our colors are all natural sources, we may not be in control with the quantity at times, so that may effect the delivery.

We promise to be prepared and try out best to give you the best quality and keep you joyous in this jouney beside us.
