tenestar

The origin of silk lies in China. Silk has already been produced in China 5,000 years ago. Up to this day silk enriches every wardrobe because its elegance is timeless. The silky-light feeling on the skin is beyond what words can say and the reason for this is its particularly fine and smooth fibre structure. Silk also has optimal skin compatibility - no wonder that this fabric has established itself as a true luxury. The beauty of this fabric must therefore be particularly carefully maintained in order to make it last very long.

A protein fibre such as silk can get superficially dissolved by an alkaline detergent and can thereby become rough and matt - and may eventually be friable after multiple washes. Silk fibres therefore deserve a special treatment with a special washing agent concentrate such as tenestar! tenestar contains mild, chemically neutral surfactants and abstains of all ingredients that could damage the silk fibre. Wool detergents are not suitable for silk because they contain lipid-replenishers. These can cause the silk to look slightly greasy and shabby. Please under no circumstances use detergents that contain bleaching agents since these will cause the colour to fade strongly. Enzymes for stain removal are also not recommended for the care of pure silk, because enzymes can dissolve the protein structure of the silk. Please do not use abric softeners: they make the silk look slightly greasy. It is also not recommended to iron too hot or to use a steam iron. The protein compound of silk is similar to that of our hair - and our hair also reacts badly to too much heat: split ends may be the result.

  • Is completely biodegradable and contains no phosphates or softeners. Neither does it contain lipid-replenishers. This will prevent the silk from any damages when being washed and will keep the fabric from roughening.
  • Is preserved by potassium sorbate which is known as a very eco-friendly preservative.
  • Does not contain chlorine, phosphates, bleach, optical brighteners, softeners or formaldehyde.
  • Does not contain any synthetics dyes.
  • Is very economical in use: using less washing agent is best for the environment!



We use potassium sorbate as a preservative. Potassium sorbate is a salt of sorbic acid which is naturally found in some fruits. The commercial ingredient is synthetically produced creating what is termed a “nature identical” chemical (chemically equivalent to the molecule found in nature). It fights bacteria effectively and is generally considered a mild preservative.
