What's in the Name

People ask me why I chose Baudekin Studio as the name of my company. The name 'baudekin' was discovered in one of the books in my personal library “Fashion: The Definitive History of Costume and Style” by Smithsonian. I stumbled on the word baudekin when I was looking for inspiration for the first fabrics collection. It was widely used in the Middle Ages and since fell out of use. According to the scholars, baudekin was a rich silk cloth decorated with gold. It was the most exquisite piece of textile art back then. It is a very fitting name for our business that specializes in rare and exquisite fabrics from all over the world.

Microfiber and Polyester Fabrics: The Rise in Microfiber Pollution

Microfibers are microscopic plastic fibers. They are shedding from both synthetic and natural textiles (Le), particularly from those fabrics that are short in length, or loosely spun or woven. Most microfiber shedding occurs during laundering. These plastic particles are so small that they cannot be easily removed and they flow straight into the rivers, lakes and oceans.
