touché vegan silk is 100% plant based, therefore no silkworms are harmed in it's production. Instead, our fabric is spun from the fibres of eucalyptus pulp, sustainably sourced from renewable forests.
Our fabric is crafted through a zero-waste, closed-loop process, that recycles up to 99% of water and safe solvents used. touché vegan silk is also biodegradable and compostable.
touché vegan silk bedding is naturally hypoallergenic and hygienic, as the eucalyptus fibres are resistant to build up of mould, bacteria and dust mites.
Our eucalyptus fabric has been tested and proven to be 2 x softer than cotton, all while being durable and long-lasting. touché vegan silk is naturally smooth and has a sleek sheen for a luxurious look and feel.
Eucalyptus is naturally antibacterial meaning it prevents bacteria growth which can clog pores and cause breakouts. The smooth surface also helps prevent wrinkles and hair breakage by reducing the friction from tossing and turning during your sleep that causes creases in the skin and hair damage.
Our cool-to-the-touch eucalypus silk is 3 x more breathable than cotton and is naturally temperature regulating. The structure of the natural fibres alllows them to absorb and release excess moisture, keeping you cool and dry throughout the night.

What you didn’t know about…
Silk has by far the worst impact on the environment of any textile, using more fresh water, causing more water pollution, and emitting more greenhouse gases. Plus at least 420 billion silkworms are killed annually during the mass-production of silk.
The big difference
Though widely renowned for its beauty boosting benefits, traditional silk cannot be considered eco-friendly or cruelty free. Silk is derived from the cocoons of silkworms, a harmful process that prevents the silkworm from evolving past the pupal stage. Silk has a more detrimental environmental impact than many synthetic fabrics, based on research by the Sustainable Apparel Coalition.
Vegan silk is a sustainable, eco-conscious replacement for traditional silk. With the same sheen and luxe finish as silk made from silkworms, vegan silk is spun from the fibres of eucalyptus pulp, sustainably sourced from renewable forests.

The antibacterial properties of eucalyptus prevents bacteria growth that can lead to breakouts. The smooth, luxe finish of touché vegan silk reduces creasing in the skin during sleep, helping to prevent the development of wrinkles over time.
The sleek, smooth finish of touché vegan silk pillowcases prevents friction as you move in your sleep, reducing frizz and tangles in hair. This gentle texture reduces pulling on the hair that can typically result in breakage, and promotes the natural shine of your hair without absorbing its moisture.
Made with Eucalyptus
Rather than using silk fibres harmfully made from the cocoons of silkworms, touché vegan silk is spun from the fibres of eucalyptus pulp, sustainably sourced from renewable forests.
Our eucalyptus-based vegan silk fabric is luxuriously soft, silky and long-lasting. touché vegan silk bedding is machine washable and durable, naturally maintaining its luxe sheen throughout washes, and becoming even softer over time.
Breathable & Cool
The Raw Truth
Roughly 6,600 silkworms are killed to make just 1 kilogram of silk. That means that billions, if not trillions, of them are killed for this purpose every year.
Cocoon cooking consumes 57 litres of water per kilogram of raw silk, while reeling uses 100 litres per kilogram of raw silk.
touché vegan silk is crafted through a zero-waste, closed-loop process where 99% of water and solvents are recyclyed and then used again.
