Sarahs Silks

Sarah’s Silks is a family owned company creating Steiner Waldorf inspired toys for children’s creative and imaginative play.

Myriad has been stocking their colourful floaty range since 2003, and their play silks in many different colours have been a best seller ever since.

About play silks:

Cloth squares are one of the very best creative playthings possible – children will come up with so many uses, they are so very very versatile for dressing up and play. Silk has an amazing floaty quality all to its own, and the fibre is very strong.

Sarah’s Silks believe in the power of imaginative play, and make simple, beautiful toys to inspire children to play and pretend. The true ‘work” of childhood is to play and we have been delighted by the creativity of children who use Sarah’s Silks toys to dress-up, build forts, make puppet shows, be super heroes, dance, play peek-a-boo and much more! Try it for yourself – give a child a couple of play silks, and step back and watch!

About silk and how the silk playthings are made

Silk is natural, renewable, and eco-friendly, as is the wood, wool, and cotton used in Sarah’s Silks toys. Silk is a natural fiber and renewable resource. Sarah’s Silks dyes are non-toxic, non-hazardous, environmentally friendly, with no heavy metals. The silks are easily hand-washed. Green America recognizes Sarah’s Silks as a “Green America Approved Business” for efforts to create sustainable toys.

Silk is an ancient product of China. Sarah’s Silks are woven, dyed, and hand-hemmed in a small village near Suzhou, a beautiful city long renowned for its silk culture. Sarah and Mike Lee enjoy this rich connection to exotic China and their family’s ancestral heritage.

Sarah’s Silks hires Chinese seamstresses who work in their homes, often sitting in doorways, as their children play nearby. Sarah’s Silks offers the seamstresses incentives beyond prevailing wages as well as access to supplemental health insurance as part of their efforts to support the healthy families of their partners across the world.

The hand-hemmed and dyed products travel by ship to Sonoma County, California. Here, women work in their homes to finish sewing, ironing and packaging Sarah’s Silks products.

Myriad stocks the full range of Sarah’s Silks products, including Sarah’s Silks Playsilks, Sarah’s Silks enchanted Playsilks, Sarah’s Silks Silkscapes as well as a range of Sarahs Silks dressing up outfits.

About the founders

Sarah and Mike Lee manage Sarah’s Silks from their Sonoma County home, where they continue to raise three boys in the Waldorf tradition. All three of their sons work in the family business by introducing and making string games and scrap bags.

Sarah’s Silks creates simple, open-ended toys that support growing minds. Developing inner creativity at a young age leads to higher levels of creative thinking in adulthood. When children’s inner creative life is nurtured, they grow into more well-rounded, stronger, and creative contributing members of our society, eager to bring their gifts to the world.

Sarah’s Silks offers quality playsilks, toys and dress-ups for boys and girls that ignite the imagination, and capture the magical soul that lives in young children.
