Have silk, will travel

Silk makes wonderful travel clothing. I make regular trips overseas to visit my manufacturers and to get inspiration for the Simply Silk range. In fact right now I am on a trip to Vietnam, China and for the first time, to Laos. I’ll take some photos along the way and post them to the Simply Silk Facebook page so you can see what I’ve been up to.

Given that I’ve just left for a multi-country trip, I thought it was appropriate to share some thoughts on making packing for travel easier.  Often I visit remote destinations and staying in the type of accommodation that won’t be listed in Condé Nast Traveller any time soon. This means I carry my own bags and have to be ready to hop on and off planes, trains and buses. Because of this I have learned to travel light and this is where I am always grateful for my silk clothing.

To ensure maximum room in my bag I roll all my silk pieces and then layer them in and around other items. I find this not only save space but also helps them from creasing so that when I arrive at me destination I don’t have to look for an iron.
