Playsilks are a natural toy enlivened by a child’s play. Made of silk (a durable, natural, renewable material) they shimmer, shine and float with every movement. Lead by the child, silks become costumes, baby slings, blankets, wings, rivers, canopies and so much more.

Silkies are simple. From a baby’s first peekaboo, to your toddler’s ghost impression (less bumping, you can see through them a little!), to the preschooler’s fairy wings... silks will last for years of creative play.

Give one to a child and watch the magic happen!

Beneath the Rowan Tree is Etsy’s leading creator of natural silk toys, with years of experience and silk sent out around the world to children’s museums, Waldorf classrooms, homeschoolers, preschools and best of all, families just like yours.

Frequently asked questions about BeneathTheRowanTree

Sizes are described for each item. If you are purchasing for a specific use or space, please be sure to measure before ordering. As each silk piece is dyed custom for you, returns and exchanges are not generally made for pieces that are their described dimensions.
Every silk item will arrive with a postcard bearing detailed information about the item and its care. Generally, treat silk like your own hair (a protein fiber)~ wash gently in warm to cool water with a gentle shampoo or dish soap and hang to dry. Avoid laundry detergent. Direct sunlight (ie on a clothesline) can quickly damage silk. Tumble dry low for a brief time, best of all~ press with a warm iron while damp.
