We choose each specific design, its specific fabric. When creating a collection, we take into consideration the artwork, our clients, and the materials we offer. Our mission is to show and enhance the artwork offered by using fabrics that can do justice to the specific design.
Modal Silk is a luxurious fiber and great for scarves. It is a lightweight, silky smooth, soft material that absorbs color and gives off a slight shimmer. Because of the material properties, you remain cool and can be used year-round.
As Modal Silk is not too sheer, you can wrap it as a top, skirt, dress and in summer temperatures, wear nothing underneath it. It will drape and crease very little. Making it a great material for holiday travel.

How are your scarves designed?
Our inspiration for our designs, come to us through events, travels or just plain living. Exhibits that impact us or just natures simple beauty. It is our interpretation which we or our collaborating artists bring to our scarves which gives Mila+Mate our unique look.
Why is Modal Silk so soft?
Modal Silk is a luxurious fiber and great for scarves. It is a lightweight, silky smooth, soft material that absorbs color and gives off a slight shimmer. The combination of Modal- a cellulose derived from the Birch tree and Silk- a natural protein fiber obtained from the larvae cocoons of the mulberry silkworm, spun tightly together gives you a very smooth, strong thread.
These properties also help keep you cool and can be used year-round.
How durable are the scarves?
Our scarves, if properly cared for, are very durable. The characteristics of each of the materials used, gives it their durability. To maintain its shape, we recommend Dry Clean Only. If you just need to air out the scarf after use, drape it on a hanger and let it hang in your bathroom while you are taking a shower. The steam created will help take away most odors, like that of food and smoke.
What’s the best way to wear it?
Every person develops their own way on 'how to wear it.'
Beside draping them over your shoulders or wrapping them around your neck, you can look at short videos and photos where we show you unique and fun ways to wear them.
Take a look at our Instagram account; @milaandmate for lots of ideas.
How does the package come?
The package is mailed in a recyclable black pouch. The actual scarf has a tag attached to it.
How should I wash it?
We strongly recommend Dry Clean Only to maintain its shape and luster. Should you feel confident enough to hand wash your Mila+Mate product; it should be in cold water with a delicate detergent. You would need to ring the excess water and dry flat wrapped in a towel. Once dry, if it is any of our materials apart from our crinkle silk, we would say use a light iron, dial placed at the correct level for the material in question or a steamer to get rid of the wrinkles.
But we STRONGLY recommend Dry Clean Only.
