The Tara Sartoria Silk Robe: Your Next Best Friend

The Tara Sartoria Silk Robe: Your Next Best Friend

In our fast paced, ever-changing world, it can be difficult to take time for yourself - time needed to reflect and reconnect. 

And while it seems self care is finally garnering the attention it deserves, we can sometimes struggle to actually practice it in our everyday lives.

… but it should be something we prioritize, because when we take care of ourselves, we are better, happier people, and that can overflow and positively impact those around us. 

Happiness starts with you.

And sometimes happiness comes in the form of a silk robe. 


Why wear a robe?

It’s time we do a deep dive into why robes are taking over the self care landscape.

A silk robe is for those in between times: 

When you’ve just rolled out of bed, having your morning coffee, before starting your day. 

It’s for after your shower, when you want to stay clean and pampered, but don’t want to get into your pajamas yet. It can be for when you’re finished with work, but are not quite ready for bed.  

Maybe it’s for when you need a day to just lounge out at home, with a bottle of wine or box of chocolates. It’s for when you’re a bit down about yourself after a tough day, and you want to feel a little bit luxurious and indulgent. A silk robe is actively practicing self-care.

A robe helps you reconnect with yourself. It acts as that mental and physical step into relaxation that you sometimes can’t take by yourself.


Why you should choose a silk robe

Silk has been used for thousands of years. Traveling from the East to West, it has remained a symbol of luxury and sophistication, and used for comfort and loungewear due to its unique properties. It’s these very qualities that make silk the perfect fabric for your robe! 

Let's unpack a few of those qualities:


Luxury and Comfort:

Silk has an incredibly smooth texture, one that ensures there is less friction and irritation against your skin. Its lightweight quality makes it breathable and practical; a silk robe is something you can easily slip on without that suffocating feeling cotton or microfiber robes can sometimes have.

Silk has the ability to thermoregulate, making it great all-year round, keeping you warm in winter and cool in summer. Paired with its unique moisture-wicking properties means you can stay dry and comfortable.


Skin Health:

Although silk is moisture-wicking, it can also help your body retain hydration. This means it will help pull unwanted moisture (sweat) away from the skin to help you from feeling uncomfortable or clammy. At the same time, it will retain your skin’s natural hydration, or that from moisturizer, lotions, and other skin-care products (keeping your skin hydrated and happy).

Silk is also hypoallergenic - it’s super gentle on the skin and resistant to allergens (including dust mites and mold), making it ideal for those with irritable or sensitive skin. Its smooth quality and resistance to moisture also prevents chafing and irritation. Silk can also help reduce the occurrence of body acne that is often caused by sweat and bacteria. 

In other words, silk treats your skin right!


As a natural, renewable, and biodegradable source, silk is sustainable and eco friendly. Produced by silkworms, silk cultivation requires minimal chemical pesticides and fertilizers. Its production also requires far less water in comparison to other textiles, and its durability reduces the need for frequent replacements cutting down on production costs and drainage.

When you choose Tara Sartoria silk, you’re also supporting ethical and sustainable silk production. Sourced from the oldest silk villages in Vietnam, all of our products are 100% Mulberry, 27 Momme silk of the highest quality. Hand loomed by artisans using traditional techniques, Tara Sartoria silk has been crafted meticulously. 


Are silk robes worth it?

If you’re still not convinced of the benefits of silk… (well, why are you still reading?)

… but just in case you’re not 100% sold, the psychological health benefits of implementing a silk robe into your life should do it!


Psychological health benefits:

Slipping into a silk robe before you start a big day, or hopping into one after you’ve just finished one can serve as a great ritual and mindfulness practice. The act of switching into a silk robe creates a sense of consistency, and pushes your mind and body to relax.

The high quality fabric and smooth texture makes you feel luxurious and pampered, enhancing your overall sense of wellbeing and boosting your confidence. Silk robes help you slow down, reflect, and reconnect with yourself at the beginning and end of each day. 

So ultimately…  Yes, silk robes are worth it. Because you’re worth it.
