Sarah’s Silks was founded by mama Sarah Lee when her young son needed a fun costume option. Sarah notes, "I reached for an old silk scarf [and] my son loved the smooth, silky feel. Soon I found myself dyeing squares of silks to support his play.” Sarah goes on to say, "I discovered silks serve as wonderful props for almost any make-believe game. I began to think about my fellow Waldorf families searching for natural toys to enhance open ended play, and the idea evolved for a line of silk play items.” And evolve it did.

NOTE: Though Sarah’s Silks are made in China, Sarah tells Hip Mountain Mama that, “It is important not to dismiss all “made in China ” products but rather to look carefully and see how things are made, and to see the conditions of the workers,” something Sarah’s Silks pays close attention to. Sarah’s Silks hires Chinese seamstresses to make their silks, offering incentives beyond prevailing wages as well as access to supplemental health insurance.
