For Silked co-founders, female entrepreneurs and friends, Phoenix Gonzalez and Sandra McCurdy, silk was never a beauty secret, but a constant nightly ritual that their Afro-Caribbean mothers performed to promote manageable hair. Phoenix and Sandra wanted to create an easy and accessible way to share this age-old, age-defying secret with the world and in April 2017 they established Silked in Los Angeles, California.
Driven by a desire to share a more environmentally responsible, innovative, and travel-friendly pillow sleeve that would offer a convenient and versatile way to boost beauty sleep; they launched direct to consumer, in December of the same year. Over the past two years, Silked has refined and enhanced its very own open-ended, eco-conscious pillow sleeve design for all skin and hair types!
