Silk was the way ahead!
Back pain led to the import of silk

Hedensted - Back pain that prevents a full night's sleep and daily phantom pain that just lasts forever.
That was the situation for Anette Egsgaard from Old Sole by Hedensted who in 2006 suffered a herniated disc in his back after an accident.
But that was headed toward an early retirement, has now become an active role in their own company called Silky-Dream, which is based on the private address of Kærvej 9 in gl. Sole.
- It was a nerve-wracking process towards the establishment of Silky-Dream. The municipality had proposed Henrik hiring me in his own company in flexible job arrangements, they withdrew suddenly in the land immediately before the establishment, says Anette Egsgaard.
- Should I early retirement, I would die of boredom, so I'm relieved that the municipality changed his mind, continues Anette Egsgaard who since January has worked as a buyer and DTP in the company Silky-Dream, which is an internet based company with sales of all kinds of silk bedding and coverings for both men and women. Especially ski underwear and socks have been some of the recent lunar its hits.

Silk gave peace

Even though she is operated three times and has received discus prosthesis, she suffers constant daily by law violent phantom pain, and at night it hurt to turn on ordinary sheets.
- Silk gives me peace and quiet, and it is very pleasant both to be in and have on the body and it contains natively sericin, proteins and amino acids that closely resembles the body's own consistency, and it has been good for me, says Anette Egsgaard, who has found its suppliers via web search and find that even people without pain likes to go silk-dressed.
