Perhaps the most obvious difference between polyester satin silk pillowcases and natural Charmeuse silk pillowcases is the cost. As a manmade fabric, polyester is easy to produce in large quantities from a relatively inexpensive source (Oil and recycled plastics) and as a result it’s generally cheap. Silk on the other hand is a luxury product and is very expensive to produce, since supply is limited and the process to harvest and spin silk is complex and labor intensive. This is one of the reasons the silk trade has more in common with precious metals and gem stones (such as being sold by weight) then other fabrics on the market.
Hopefully this article has helped to shed some light on this often asked question about the differences between silk and (polyester) satin silk pillowcases. Also keep in mind you need to be washing your pillow cases at least 3 times a week!
Now you have the facts, why not treat yourself like a princess 👸🏼
