Sarah's Silks Playsilks Earth


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.

Recommended Age: 3+ years

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.

Sarah’s silks

I had been so on the fence about getting silks for my boys then decided to just give it a go, and I’m so happy I did! My boys play with them all the time. They are so versatile and can be used for so many things. Absolutely love them and will definitely be buying more!

Sarah’s silks

I bought my children a collection of Sarah’s silks for Christmas. They are so beautiful to look at and touch and so far they have been windows, cubby walls, scene setters, capes, blankets and headwear. I’m trying very hard not to buy more.

Madi Crawford

Beautiful- love, love, love!

I purchased for my 2yo niece and they have been a hit! Highly recommend! In the first half hour we played peek a boo, wrapped up her dollies and built a cubby! So versatile!

Silks love

My daughter loves her silk. She uses them for peeka boy, tucking her dollies in and so much more. Wash up well too

Haley Levy
Beautiful quality

As a sewer I was going to just sew our own silks but decided to invest in 1 and when it arrived. The quality is beautiful and so light the way it falls when it's being played with. We are about 1 year into open ended play and wooden toys and our first Sarah's silk will not be our last
