My name is Sherri Ulrich-Crookshanks and I am the founder of Meili & Grace Anti-Aging Pillowcase.
Meili & Grace embodies the love of life and family, following a passion with a sense of responsibility, the enjoyment of beauty, the adventure of challenges together, boutique craftsmanship and finding something unique and authentic.
It started 12 years ago. My sister told me she wanted to go to Switzerland to buy some particular silk pillowcases. She was a young model and I was a teacher in Milan, Italy. Her modeling agency told her to sleep on a special silk pillowcase because it would keep her skin looking like a model. We found these silk pillowcases in a beautiful Swiss boutique and instantly fell in love with this precious material and what it did for our skin and quality of sleep.
After returning home to California, we found that the silk in the USA was not the luxurious material I had gotten used to in Italy. It seemed like the silk in the USA was not of the same quality and did not add any benefit to my skin or my quality of sleep. In a flash, I realized there was a need for this authentic silk in the USA.
6 years later, I was in a corporate skincare job but still holding on to the desire that I could create a company that sold this rare, exquisite silk like I once slept on in Italy. It took some time, but I convinced my husband that this idea I had 6 years ago in Italy could become part of a wider business project. We saved our money and decided we would leave all our certainties we had built up to that moment and move to China until we came back with the world’s most precious silk. The adventure began.
We spent 2 years intensely learning Chinese and the silk making process. We spent another two years searching and testing for the worlds best silk that matched the Chinese silk I found in Switzerland 12 years earlier. We visited China’s most renowned silk makers, some of which supply Royalty of other countries. After 4 years, with a lot of help from experts in precious fibers and skincare, we had developed a silk unmatched in quality and anti-aging properties. We believe we have a silk that separates us from all the others on the market, and good enough to change the way you think about silk.
