ABOUT US

Gold'n'Silk was started by two friends who believe that women deserve to be excited, supported, and inspired to always go after their dreams and aspirations, no matter what their situations are, or what stage of life they are at. We believe that in building a supportive, positive and inspirational community, we can crowd-source our resources, ideas, and inspirations from each other to help motivate and push all of us forward on this life's journey. 


Why Gold'n'Silk?

Gold'n'Silk was inspired by several things coming together. Namely: 

The Silk Road, also called Silk Route, ancient trade route, linking China with the West, that carried goods and ideas between the two great civilizations of Rome and China. Silk went westward and Gold went east.

  • Gold symbolize wealth, extravagance, and riches. Sharing some of the psychological attributes of being optimistic and cheerful. It is undeniably glamorous, associated with good times, celebrations and glitz. In addition key characteristics we value in Gold are that it is the most malleable element which means it's flexible, it is rare as nearly all the gold on Earth came from meteorites that bombarded the planet over 200 million years after it formed. The element symbol for gold—Au—comes from the old Latin name for gold, aurum, which means "shining dawn" or "glow of sunrise." Gold is relatively un-reactive and resists degradation by air, moisture, or acidic conditions, making it strong.
  • Silk symbolize joy, love and happy times and is therefore a positive sign in life. Everyone seems to know and love silk, admire its drape, luster and soothing feeling, and it's known to be one of the most flexible fabrics.

We at Gold'n'Silk wanted to bring these attributes, symbols and feelings into our box and share with our community, where we weave in all the merchandize that we carefully curate from around the world whether it's from Asia to Europe to Africa and the Middle East. We wanted to instill that same silk bond that all women share when it comes to living their dreams and leading an inspired fulfilling life. While yes both Gold and Silk denote wealth and riches, and we know that that is not necessarily everyones dream, they hold many more characteristics that makes them even more valuable than their monetary value. This is why we chose Gold'n'Silk to help us build and achieve dreams and feelings of:

    • Joy
    • Happiness
    • Optimism
    • Cheer
    • Wealth
    • Extravagance
