Founded in 2002 by naturalist and conservationist Sue Godding, GODDING&GODDING, formerly known as SILK COLLECTIONS, has evolved from a small, family run silk farm – specializing in fine silk linen and silk products – to an international company, well known and respected for its original silk and fragrances of Africa, luxurious skin care products, the finest bedding and bed clothes – and gifts for those who enjoy a truly sophisticated lifestyle.
Long before the natural wellness movement became popular, GODDING&GODDING was wholeheartedly embracing the riches of the natural world, introducing skin care products made with pure silk, flower and plant essences. We are dedicated to creating products and gifts that transform the ordinary rituals of daily life into extraordinary pleasurable experiences.
Spun by nature.
GODDING&GODDING takes its inspiration from the ancient Chinese and the natural goodness of Africa. Silk – first discovered five thousand years ago – became the royal fabric of ancient China and remains so to the day. Not satisfied with only wearing and sleeping wrapped in the finest natural fiber, the Tsang Dynasty learned to add pure silk to distilled fragrant waters for bathing creating soothing essences of wellness for the skin.
GODDING&GODDING have embraced these traditions, developing a range of unique products each naturally enhanced by Africa’s own traditional use of her fauna and flora for wellness, vitality and aroma (rooibos, marula, baobab and aloe vera) resulting in a range of products of uncompromising quality and luxury that is GODDING&GODDING.
At GODDING&GODDING, we employ a number of local ladies that have been trained specifically in the art of Silk production. From the stretching of silk into the batting for our popular duvet inners, the sewing of luxurious satin silk bathrobes to the unique and world renowned silk skin care we manufacture; our ladies take pride and special care with each and every item handcrafted.
Africa has many wonderful and magical secrets, few of which the world has been exposed to. After all, secrets are secrets. At GODDING&GODDING we keep Africa’s secrets secret but through our products we share a few benefits, a few scents, a few luxuries even. We are African after all, the plants, the trees and the herbs we infuse with our pure silk is all African, and provides a remarkable balance between giving away Africa’s secrets and giving away just enough magic so that our products deliver something extraordinary for you.
