Our own collaboration with a local creative. These colourful, soft, hand-dyed silks for preschoolers, invite hours of open-ended free play. Play silks come in a beautiful rainbow of jewel tones.

Wonderful, magical, silky and swirly, play silks can be anything a child imagines them to be... a cape, a mermaid tail, a flag, butterfly wings, for building forts, a baby blanket, dancing or making small worlds.

Children love using play silks for dress-up, puppet shows, and to create scenes with wooden animals or small toys. Babies laugh as silks are thrown into the air, or used to play “peek-a-boo”!

Discovery and creativity are in the hands and minds of little explorers.
