The history of silk

Silk is one of the oldest fibres known to man; its illuminating features and ultimate softness mean that it is a much-loved material, which holds connotations of sheer luxury, elegance and comfort. Here at ddoo collective, all of our garments are made from 100% habotai silk, ensuring that the high-quality cloth is long-lasting and feels as luxurious on the skin as it looks beautiful on the outside.

Why minimalist packing is the way forward

Whether you are a frequent traveller or someone who only has time to venture further afield a few times a year, there is a lot that can be learnt about your style of packing. Although we often feel as if to be fully prepared for a trip away we must pack everything we own - bar the kitchen sink - this is simply not the case.
