Produced in silk or modal, Bainha scarves are our special tribute to Portuguese master tile work. We’ve taken this immediately recognizable art, and created a product line that inspires European beauty and elegance.
As our next chapter in keeping with traditional Portuguese “Azulejaria” (tile making), we brought to light the ability to combine an artistic treasure and ancient heritage, with a contemporary sense of style.
It is a natural fibre obtained from the cocoons of silkworms. It is one of the most expensive raw materials due to the time it takes to be produced, because it follows the life cycle of caterpillars. The way it is produced was once a state secret in China. It is known for its lightness, softness and brilliant colours.
It is a fibre 100% composed of chlorine-free treated cellulose. Modal remains soft even after many washes. It has an excellent ability to let the skin breathe, is a very light fabric and has a brightly and silky coloured finish.
Silk: Hand wash. Do not bleach. Do not tumble dry. Dry in the shade. Iron at a low temperature
Modal: Wash at or below 30ºC. Do not bleach. Do not spin-dry. Do not tumble dry. Iron at a low temperature
