Sarah's Silks Earth Playsilks
Sarah's Silks Earth Playsilks are perfect for creative and open-ended play. Sarah designed them for children to play in ways that care for Mother Earth. Children use them as the ocean for a sailboat, the desert as sand on a beach for a camping trip, forest as trees, stone for rock climbing, and so much more. They are light, yet strong and the edges of each playsilk are hand-hemmed. All playsilks are color-fast and hand washable. They can be even ironed on a medium setting.
A basket of colored playsilks is one of the best additions to a child’s playroom. It is amazing to see what children create with them: Some children make costumes like capes, skirts, pants, hats, veils, animal tails and more. The next day the same silks become green grass for their toy animals to live on, blue water to sail the boats, or a rainbow can appear in the sky above them. Many children wrap their dolls in them or tie them on as a sling to carry a favorite animal or doll around in. They can be used to build forts with the sofa cushions, for a puppet show curtain, and for magic tricks. The possibilities are as unlimited as your child's imagination.
Dimensions: 90cm x 90cm
Sarah's Silks Earth Playsilks are also available in a smaller version.
Sarah's Silks Playsilks are dyed with non-toxic, eco friendly dyes and have been safety tested for children aged 3 and older.
Sarah's Silks is based in California, US. As a family-owned company Sarah's Silks has been importing sustainably-produced, hand-woven silks from China for many years. Sarah sources her materials from a village near Suzhou. The workers - mostly women - generally work from home, weaving, dyeing, sewing, ironing the silk products.
The dyes are non toxic, non-hazardous, environmentally-friendly and do not contain any heavy metals. Sarah's Silks offers quality silk and cotton playcloths in radiant colors that inspire open-ended play encouraging children to express themselves and the wonders of their imaginations. Children who develop inner creativity at an early age grow up to become inventive, resourceful adults with a greater depth of creative thinking.
