It's always nice to know who and where your products are coming from so we thought we'd tell you a bit about our family business and how we became North America's premiere silk bedding company.
Silk is a gift to the world from China, where it was discovered many thousands of years ago. And China continues to be known for producing the very highest quality silk. Our factory is situated in the Anhui province and we have been harvesting and producing silk there for decades. Two generations of the Zhang family oversee every part of the process - from mulberry leaf farming to fabric weaving and product manufacturing. Our parent company is so well regarded in the industry that it helps set the export regulations for silk in China. In addition to producing premiere quality silk products, our family is also know for giving back to the community by supporting local industry and farmers.
Several years ago, two members of the second generation Zhang family came to Canada to attend University. Upon observing life and culture here, they both noticed that few people in Canada were using or enjoying silk bedding. This inspired them to design the Manito collection in a simple style and rich palette of colors. It did not take long for North Americans to discover the amazing benefits and luxury of silk and Manito has quickly become known as the trusted authority in silk bedding and sleepwear. People who have discovered our products keep coming back for more!
Manito's Headquarters is in Vancouver, Canada, where we have our showroom, customer service center, and inventory. However, we maintain a close connection and communication with our factory in China, ensuring the quality of our silk and finishing remains an industry leader.
