Playsilk Factories

Playsilk Factories

We partner exclusively with factories that do exceptional work and treat their employees with respect.

Suzhou, China

Our silk is Habotai, an ancient product from China. Silk making is an ancient tradition that is indigenous to China, and is still an important and celebrated process in Chinese culture today. Sarah’s Silks are woven, dyed, and sewn in Suzhou, a beautiful city long renowned for its silk culture.

From Suzhou

Nanchong, China

One of Nanchong's primary agricultural products is silk worms, which support related manufacturers, including ours! Our silk is produced on family farms, and is an ancient, traditional product of the area. The school children of Nanchong visit our factory by taking train rides through the city and delight in learning about silk.

We have been working with these factories since the early days of Sarah's Silks. They are medium sized, family-run businesses that have grown with us for over 25 years, in turn helping each other to shape the businesses we are today.

Our factories must meet three benchmarks: fair trade, empowerment, & transparency.

Fair Trade

Our factories value their employees and the environment by issuing fair wages and quality working conditions.


We want employees to feel empowered, so we look for partners who value employee retention, promoting from within, with equal opportunity for all.


We audit often and build personal relationships with every vendor to ensure accountability and honest communication.

From the beginning, Sarah Silk's has prioritized a moral responsibility to the earth and its people. It has always been important to us that our manufacturing process be sensitive to the environment, and that the people involved at every step of the process are treated with respect, receive a fair wage, and are not expected to work in uncomfortable or hazardous conditions.
