About Us

This is Silkit

Who are we? 

We make beautiful, luxurious silk pillowcases that help your hair shine and your skin glow. We are a family owned business from Melbourne, by me (Melissa) and my partner, Max. At Silkit, we are all about affordable luxury. We believe everyone should be able to experience the wonders of real, high quality silk. We only use 6A Long Strand 100% Mulberry Silk in all our products. Our silk is OEKO certified, hypoallergenic and dyed with non-toxic dyes. Creating products using the highest quality silk available at reasonable prices is what sets us apart from the rest. 

How did Silkit start?

It all started when I was looking for a silk pillowcase for myself, and was shocked by the price hiking and low quality I found on offer. Many silk pillowcases available were low momme, or were deceptively made from polyester satin. Despite the lower quality, the prices were above $100 each, shipping not included! I gave up looking - and then decided to make my own! With the help of Max, I created a silk pillowcase, that was made from 100% Mulberry silk, and 25 momme. Silkit took off, and high quality affordable silk pillowcases became a reality. 

What is Silkit like today?

 We have learned so much since we started in late 2019. Navigating a new small business through a pandemic will teach you a lot 😅 We have introduced many more products, such as silk scrunchies, silk lined beanies and silk sleep masks. Our dream would be to be able to work on our business full time, so thank you so much for supporting us and helping us work towards our dream!
