Our Story

SILKUP was created by a team of colleagues with different hair types, who all knew of the benefits of sleeping in silk, yet none of us had found a perfect solution to wrapping our hair.

We found using a silk scarf could often come loose overnight, or layers of overlaid fabric could dig in and be uncomfortable. Whilst existing ready-made turban wraps worked for some; team members with Afro hair found the weight of braids or twists could cause the front-knot to pull against the forehead. One of our team with an undercut found that almost anything slipped off.

We realised that there wasn’t a comfortable, luxurious product that could fit all types of hair whilst staying put throughout the night.


We created Luna, our innovative
silk hair wrap to solve this problem.



Luna is 100% 22 momme Mulberry silk, featuring a soft jersey silk band with gentle elasticity. Designed to distribute the weight of your hair, the jersey silk band and structure of the bonnet provide a comfortable sleep.

All of this means your hair is protected, your locks are contained, your style is extended and you sleep like a Queen. The jersey silk band is made with a weaving technique that loops the threads to create elasticity naturally and is still 100% silk. No added man-made fibers. The band also seals your edges and protects baby hairs from tension caused by other hair wraps.

The success of Luna led to our second release,

our 100% silk pillowcases.

Silk pillowcases have been hailed as the best-kept secret in skincare by dermatologists and supermodels alike.  The benefits of sleeping on a silk pillowcase are multi-purpose, helping to keep both your hair and skin looking its best while you sleep. It works to help keep your skin looking beautiful by eliminating sleep creases and any treatments, moisturizers and creams you use will penetrate your skin and hair fully while you sleep.

You will wake up feeling refreshed with radiant skin and visibly improved hair from the first night of beauty sleep. All this means you will wake up with noticeably smoother skin and hair, with less product use, and less chemical exposure.

Ordinary cotton pillowcases can pull and snag at your hair, leading to tangles, breakage and bedhead. Sleeping on silk will reduce friction and help keep it looking its best by retaining moisture and style while you sleep.

Our pillowcases are made with the highest quality 100% 19 momme silk, which is proven to keep your skin looking radiant and glowing. Your skin will glide over the silk reducing friction, stretching, pressure and tugging at your skin,  preventing sleep creases from forming.
