From Melasma to Silksy: My Journey to Creating Satin-Lined Hats

As a woman, we all know that finding the perfect hat can be a real struggle. You want something that not only looks good, but also protects your skin from sun exposure and keeps your hair looking healthy. Well, let me tell you, I've been there. And that's why I started Silksy.

My name is Lindsay, and I am the founder of Silksy, a wife, mother of two beautiful children, and a Registered Nurse. My journey to creating Silksy began in 2016, when I developed melasma, a condition characterised by large pigmentation patches on the face. It was a frustrating time, as I wanted to protect my skin from the sun, but I also didn't want to sacrifice my hair's health.

That's when I discovered the benefits of satin in preventing frizz. I searched high and low for a satin-lined hat, but I couldn't find one that met my needs in terms of style or quality. So, I decided to take matters into my own hands and create my own hat. And that's how Silksy was born.

I wanted to create a hat that not only protected my skin from sun exposure but also kept my hair looking healthy. I chose to use rayon satin as the lining for our hats, as I didn't want to support the production method of silk (the boiling of silkworms) and I also wanted to make our hats accessible to as many people as possible. Rayon satin is a plant-based material and is slightly more expensive than polyester satin, but I believe that it's worth it to have a more natural product against the skin.

At Silksy, we believe that protecting our environment is just as important as protecting ourselves. That's why we are committed to using eco-friendly materials and packaging, and for every hat sold, we donate to plant a tree with Tree App.

I hope my story has inspired you to think about the impact of your purchases, not only for yourself but for the environment. And I hope you'll consider choosing Silksy for your next hat purchase.

As always, we love to connect with our customers, so please don't hesitate to reach out with any questions or comments.

Thank you for choosing Silksy.
