Technology T.Silk

MORE SILK THAN SILK ITSELF

HIGH PERFORMANCE NATURAL PADDING

Thermal, Breathable, comfortable and eco-sustainable

The technology used to develop T.Silk® has further improved the properties of the fiber.
This has been achieved thanks to know-how and a processing technique that was developed over the years based on chemical and physical analysis of the silk fiber.

T.Silk® is a material that is able to provide unrivaled comfort. The comfort of an article of clothing is determined by the sensation one perceives when the clothing is worn. One of the fundamental elements here is “thermo-physiological comfort”, which is determined by the relation between thermal resistance and evaporative resistance.
