    Silk - How to know if it's real or fake silk? Silk - How to know if it's real or fake silk? Presentation Transcript

      • How to tell if silk is real or fake?
      • Very difficult to tell real silk from artificial silk.
      • The older real silk gets, the more beautiful it gets – but the older fake silk gets, the more it fades.
      • Touch Test
      • it should sound like walking on fresh snow when you rub it
      • Burn Test
      • it should smell like burned hair (fake smells like burned paper)
      • the ashes should be black and crispy (fake is soft and like charcoal)
    • TIP: CALIBRATE ON REAL SILK You should get one piece of 100% real silk in a shop. This way you can get to know the real material and it will be easier to tell when you want to buy silk elsewhere.
      • CHEMICAL TEST
      • 16 gram of CuSO4 (copper sulfate)
      • 150 ml water.
      • 8-10 g glycerine and NaOH
      • put a small sample of the silk inside.
      • real silk dissolves, fake silk remains
