Gina says,

This is our love letter to India - home away from home. 

The LTD edition series of pillowcases and scrunchies are made using the same luxurious mulberry silk but hand-dyed by the all women team at 2Up2Down Textiles in Bangalore, India using native flowers and leaves to form unique prints and designs. 

This collab is very close to my heart because the opportunity to work with these incredibly talented women came in the midst of the pandemic and that meant we were in a position to provide work to them when everything else was shut. The project also uses flowers and leaves native to India making it truly one of a kind. The marigold flowers used are discarded temple flowers, dried, powdered to make the orange-yellow speckles. 

Artwork details 

The project took more than 2 months to complete. 

Every pillowcase is unique and no artificial dyes were used. Every print you see is imprinted by nature itself. Note these pillowcases are slightly lighter in weight than our regular cases to so it's easy for the natural dyes to penetrate. 

The hours that go in creating these make them a premium product and the price reflects the same. 

The full moon is created using two hand dyeing techiniques - Japanese Itajime Shibori and eco printing. The grey hue comes from alkanet. 

Summer love with the wonderful peachy hues is created using Manjishta/ Indian madder and is extensively used to treat skin diseases in Ayurveda. The leaf imprints on it are made from the leaves of Guava, Silver Oak and Geranium. 

Marigold fields is filled with golden speckles and petals -courtesy of discarded temple marigold flowers and powdered marigold.

So pretty, so silky

Absolutely love my pillowcases from damn Gina! I bought two for myself and two for a friend who loves them also. Love the colour, how cool it is on my skin when I turn the pillow over, how it doesn't tug my hair. Definitely would recommend!

Wish I’d got one earlier!

Have put off getting a silk pillowcase case to help my curly (frizzy hair) but finally took the chance and got one. No regrets! So worth it. Very happy with the effect, much less frizz. Wish I’d committed to the purchase years ago.

Love it!

It’s the best silk pillowcase I own ❤️ So soft and nice on my skin and hair! I absolutely love it. Made from beautiful, soft, thick silk, with a very generous flap that keeps the pillow nice and secure. I will definitely purchase another because of the quality and value. Thank you for such a lovely product ❤️

So soft

Gorgeous pillow case I bought a different brand previously and the pillow was always slipping around inside. It was also very thin
Damn Gina is so much nicer. Super soft. Great for my hair and fits better on my pillow

Wow, sleep so deeply now, unbelievable!! Who would have thought that a silk pillow case could make such a difference!! Temperature regulation is clearly critical to sleep, wish I’d got this sooner! Love it, thanks so much for making it accessible & for the envelope enclosure 😄
