30 Ways to Use Play Silks

Posted by Kaly Town on

We are excited to announce that Seed is carrying Sarah’s Silks.

We have thoughtfully chosen these play silks as they are made with non-toxic, non-hazardous, environmentally friendly dyes, with no heavy metals. Silk is a natural fiber and renewable resource. It is a strong, fine, lustrous fabric and, when taken care of, it will last. Keeping the health of the planet in mind, we believe it is important to provide toys and materials that are durable and stand the test of time. We also strive to provide toys that return effortlessly to the Earth at the end of their life span. Sarah’s Silks are recognized as a “Green America Approved Business” for efforts to create sustainable toys. Sarah’s charming silks check all those boxes for us. 

Play silks are versatile, open ended and grow with your child year after year. They encourage imaginary play, spark creativity and nourish the senses. You can’t compare the smell or the feeling of a synthetic play scarf to Sarah’s silks. The way they hold colour and shimmer is pure magic.

Developing inner creativity at a young age leads to higher levels of creative thinking in adulthood, so here are 30 ways you can start playing with your silk today.
