Porcelain Egg Keepsake Box

Porcelain

- Fine porcelain is made from firing china stone and china clay (i.e., kaolin) at extremely high temperatures. Ancient artifacts indicate that the first porcelain was found to be produced during the T'ang Dynasty in 6th A.D. Porcelain is marked by a white or very light, translucent surface with great durability. The beauty and durability of porcelain makes it ideal for dinnerware, decorative vases, and other fine objects for the home - often kept as family heirlooms.
For an example of porcelain-made wedding favors, please see the Solilei Porcelain Slipper, Marikei Porcelain Favor Box, Azuevo Porcelain Egg, Emélie Footed Box, and the Fiovalé Porcelain Keepsake Egg.

- Any lightweight fabric such as organza, chiffon, or crepe. Since these are light fabrics, they are ideal for warm weather.


Silk Bridal Sachets

Silk

- Pure silk is made when silkworm larvae produce a protein-like filament. When a silkworm forms its cocoon, it secretes a fluid that is hardened by its own secreted gum. The cocoon is placed in warm water whereby the filament is separated and the gum is removed, once the silk becomes soft. Thereafter, the silk threads are spun into production. The result is a durable and lustrous thread of fibers. It is important to note that not all silk produced from cocoons can be used as fibers; the silk produced by the Bombyx mori is highly usable for making silk. Different types of silkworms yield varying textures of silk, as well. The beauty and fine texture of silk has made it a popular material for creating a variety of unique gifts.

To see an example, view our Luméseta Silk Favor Pouch and the Saphia Silk Embroidered Pouch as an example of products made using 100% luxurious silk fabrics.

Silk Shantung Floral Ring Pillow

Silk Shantung

- This fabric is classified as a type of dupioni silk and is named after the province of Shantung in China. It has a distinctive look and lustrous feel compared to dupioni silk because it uses a heavier yarn and thus costs more when used as a material on a dress or bag. The most notable difference also lies in the appearance of slubs or bumps in the fabric.
