Melissa Van Kasteren of Lujo Home has been named as a finalist for the 2020 AusMumpreneur Awards. In both the Disabled Business Excellence Award SA and the Overcoming the Odds Award Categories.
The AusMumpreneur Awards presented by The Women’s Business School celebrate and recognize Australian Mum’s in business achieving outstanding success in areas such as business excellence, product development, customer service and digital innovation. The awards are designed to recognize the growing number of women who successfully balance motherhood and business. In a way that suits their life and family.
Illnesses can be challenging, but can lead to amazing things
For many years Melissa has lived with an invisible illness. Diagnosed with SLE Lupus, with symptoms as early as 21 years old. Serious illness is a tough journey, but she is glad of one thing through this challenge, it has led her to create Lujo Home, which officially launched in 2017. Myer Online was introduced a couple of years later.
Melissa had no idea that buying silk bedding would be the precipice that would change her life and lead her on the path it has. The silk duvet and pillowcases gave her relief. Something not easily done while living with a chronic illness. It was also beautiful to touch and look at, making her feel more relaxed.
“I fell in love with pure mulberry silk”
Mulberry silk wasn’t just wonderful to touch, it had beauty and health benefits too. She realized she needed to share this discovery with other people.
“I’ve always loved retail. I have worked in retail previously. But I was only ever able to work part-time (if at all) due to my illness. My wonderful husband worked away in FIFO to support us. Often for 4 weeks at a time and we only saw him for a week in between. The idea of Lujo Home came from wanting to build something for my family, with more family time together.
What inspired Melissa?
Our product range was inspired by what I personally loved and have made a big difference to my own life. My love of bright shiny objects and things like silk have helped me so much over the last few years. It has definitely played a big part in starting this business. I started Lujo Home with the things I loved. When you’re not feeling too well you must really love something to be able to promote it or sell it. There was a need for a local supplier with a specialist range in silk. I wanted to build a business with greater choice for our customers and even better customer service. Back when we started there wasn’t as many pure silk suppliers. Our focus has always been on quality and not corner-cutting”.
What does Melissa love about being a Mumpreneur?
Every single order I pack, I just get so excited. I love to see what people buy and I love hearing back comments and reviews. Often about how much they love it and how things are changing people’s lives in simple ways. I just get so excited by that. It really makes me feel good. Lujo Home has enabled me to be able to work full time. This is the first time in years. I have been able to build something for my family. It’s also lovely to have all the people involved in my business. A lot of money comes in, but a lot goes out to people as well and I love that.
Melissa is delighted to be named as a finalist and is proud of her achievements. Particularly being able to scale up and down through this turbulent year. Learning as she has gone. As she has had no formal training or managerial experience.
It’s also been a true blessing for her family. Melissa’s husband Jason has been able to scale back his time working away. Jason now only works away two out of three rather than four out of five. This has been amazing for family time and means a lot to the kids as well as Melissa.
There are many benefits to balancing business and motherhood as Melissa explains, “Lujo Home has enabled me to be able to work properly for the first time in years. To build something for my family. Being able to work from home around my family and my health challenges has been crucial to my success. I’ve been able to show my children to keep going no matter what obstacles you face. Aldo to follow their inspiration”.
What advice does Melissa have for people considering starting their own business?
It can be challenging to be a successful business woman whilst raising a family. Melissa gives this advice for others thinking about starting their own enterprise. ”For me stocking products I love has got me though the tough times. This may go against others advice but when you are unwell sometimes you need to keep yourself inspired. Makes getting through the tough times easier. I think scaling up slowly has also allowed me to learn and grown as I go. So even if it’s all new try to put your fears aside and give it a good go”.

A silk pillowcase to sleep on is one of the best beauty regimes you can treat yourself to. We all have our individual beauty routines that we make time for during the day — usually first thing and last thing — but imagine an easy all-night beauty treatment that takes extra care of your skin and your hair without any effort from you, while you sleep.
What do silk pillowcases do?
What do silk pillowcases do is a question that we get asked quite often. There are lots of benefits that silk offers and one of the most important is what we call glide. The silky smoothness of this luxurious natural fibre, Mulberry Silk, is what takes care of your skin and your hair while you sleep. For example, have you ever woken up from your cotton or synthetic pillowcase with creases on your face? Well, that won’t happen with silk. Because your skin slides beautifully over silk, it means that no matter how much you might toss and turn if you’re a restless sleeper, the silk surface of your Lujo Home pillow case will continue to offer you a wonderfully smooth surface to rest on. And because it’s the best quality silk, it also helps keep your skin and hair well hydrated.
Silk pillowcase beauty benefits
Quite often, we get reports from our customers who had skin reactions, overheating etc from sleeping on cheaper, synthetic pillowcases and this is what has led them to seek out a healthier option such as our top-quality Mulberry Silk pillowcases.
Here’s just a short list of some of the benefits our customers tell us they get from sleeping on their Lujo Home silk pillowcase:
smoother looking skin
hair is not tangled
fresher looking skin
no awful creases
I don’t feel hot and uncomfortable any more
I look younger
my awful rash has gone
I don’t sweat as much
I wake up feeling refreshed
my skin just feels better!
Are silk or satin pillowcases better?
Although it’s quite common to hear people talk about silk and satin in the same sentence, they’re actually worlds apart — very different fabrics, indeed. Yes, they might both look to be shiny and smooth, and in the past, satin used to be made from silk. But the satin of today is actually made from synthetic material such as nylon, rayon and polyester. Synthetic satin is generally a much more affordable option, but when you consider what you would normally spend on your beauty routine? We think investing in a quality silk pillowcase is a very small price to pay. If you really, truly want to get the biggest health and beauty benefits from your pillowcase, we recommend you choose 100 percent silk. There really is no substitute for the best.
Any of our Grade 6 A long strand silk pillowcases are the best silk pillowcase, because at Lujo Home, we’ve made the decision to stock only the highest quality. So you can be sure that whichever silk you choose — lighter or heavier — you will always be choosing the best silk pillowcase. And be assured that every Lujo Home pillowcase has the same quality construction with a neat, hidden zip.
Which weight silk would make it the best silk pillowcase for you?
They’re all beautiful top-quality silks however different people prefer different weights. That’s why Lujo Home gives you a few options to suit your individual needs:
19 momme is a great starter pillowcase, slightly thinner silk but still the best quality
22 momme is a beautiful in-between weight in silk, a stunning silk sheen
25 momme is slightly heavier again, with a slightly less silky sheen and extra durability.
Different momme, different colour range
One thing to consider before you decide which momme you would like, is colour. The colours in our 3 different ranges do vary, so make sure your favourite colour is available in the momme you choose before you place your order.
Are silk pillowcases cool to sleep on?
Many of our happy customers have given us feedback about how they love the cool feel of sleeping on their 100% silk pillowcase. Once you know that synthetic fabrics such as satin are made of petrochemicals, and you make the change to silk, you’ll wonder how
which means neither can your skin. If you’re ready to make the change to beautiful, luxurious, world’s best quality 100% Mulberry silk, contact us today.
What is the best quilt for a hot sleeper? I am no expert on quilts, bedding or getting a good sleep. But a few years back I realized how much difference a lightweight quilt could make to getting a great nights sleep. For years I have suffered with issues around sleeping. I used to find myself overheating at night, and a heavy quilt never felt good. It took me a lot of trial and error to find the perfect lightweight doona for me. Five years ago my health issues were getting out of control. With an autoimmune issue and sore painful joints and muscles, I found it hard to get a good sleep. Even worse, if I did not sleep well, my symptoms would just snowball and get worse.
Overheating at night was becoming more common for me, and this in turn would flare up all my issues. I started to research the best quilt for hot sleepers and the information I found was quite interesting and certainly not what I had expected. I had always stuck with micro fibre quilts or feather and down assuming they were light weight. But not as light weight or comfortable as Mulberry silk filled quilts.
The importance of the body’s core temperature for sleep
In an article in The Australian, Matthew Walker, a professor of neuroscience and psychology at the University of California, Berkeley says “People tend to set their ambient house or bedroom temperature a little higher than is actually optimal for sleep,”
The body’s core temperature needs to drop by about two to three degrees to initiate sleep, Walker says. “If our core temperature is too high, the brain cannot easily make the switch from being awake to being asleep, or create the best quality sleep.”
No wonder so many people have issues if they are waking up overheating during the night. Could a lightweight doona be the answer?
Is your doona making you overheat? Heat intolerance and sleeping
Heat intolerance is a common issue for people with autoimmune diseases and unfortunately something that I have always suffered with. A lightweight quilt seems to have made a huge difference for me. But not just any quilt, I needed a lightweight doona. I was overheating at night. My doctor suggested looking for a quilt that was more comfortable to sleep with. Most of my research was done just chatting to other online members in Facebook forums. Silk was suggested. I had never heard of the option of a silk quilt. I was starting to hear how silk filled quilts had been a big help for them.
Although it seemed the silk filled option was the best quilt for hot sleepers they were not easy to find in Australia. I purchased one with a very high price tag but noticed a difference in my sleep straight away. At Lujo Home we stock a range of affordable mulberry silk filled quilts that you can find in our silk shop.
Silk filled quilts are lightweight
It was not just the fact I was not getting as hot while I slept, there were other bonuses too. One of the biggest bonuses for the silk filled quilt was the fact that it was so light, still so warm but not heavy. As a light weight quilt it was easier to turn over in bed with less restriction.
I live in South Australia so most of the year silk quilt is the perfect weight and warmth. In winter I find it best to sleep with a a thin blanket on top of my lightweight doona. During the night if I happen to overheat, I can easily throw off the blanket. I still feel warm throughout the night without overheating. For me this has been the best quilt for hot sleepers.
I was so impressed with my silk quilt I started researching other options for bedding, such as silk pillowcases to improve my hair.
The perfect lightweight doona, this was the beginning of Lujo Home.
My family and I wanted to bring a quality range of bedding to our own online store. With many options for bedding we wanted a brand where people could find nice, affordable options for their bedding. A lightweight doona is especially good for people who had health issues like myself (or just want better hair!) I hope this helps give you some idea of the best quilt for hot sleepers.
You will notice at Lujo Home we have our mulberry silk filled quilts in a cotton shell. We have found this a much more economical option for people. A cotton cover is more practical for a quilt. A full silk quilt, with silk cover and filling, will slide around inside your quilt cover and tends to be more difficult to keep in place.
We think our silk filled quilts are the best option for people who over heat while they sleep. You will find two options. One is the premium grade A long strand filled quilt and our standard mulberry option.
While you are here, we would love you to check out our Lujo Home bedding online store. We think our pure Mulberry filled silk quilt is the best lightweight doona for Australia.

Curls are gorgeous. When you have a curly haired baby everyone comments on their beautiful, curly hair. But how do you look after curly hair in kids? What kids’ curly hair products are there? And most importantly, what works and what won’t have your child screaming when you do their hair? Here are a few thinks you may not have thought of. The choice of kids scrunchies, and even a kids pillowcase can make a remarkable difference. A kids silk pillowcase? Who would have guessed something so simple could make such a big difference.
Kids’ curly hair products
Looking after curly hair is different to straight or wavy hair. Curly hair is inherently dry and often curly hair is prone to the dreaded frizz! Simply, curly hair needs special care!
How to get soft, flowing curls in kids’ hair
Curly kids hair needs care too, just like adult hair. A walk into a chemist and you will see whole dedicated shelves to curly hair care products. This is your biggest giveaway that curly hair takes a little bit more love than other types!
Your curly haired child. If your child has really curly hair, and you don’t. Or maybe you do but you just aren’t sure about kids hair care. You have come to the right place!
Top tips for curly hair in kids
Tip number 1 – Conditioner is a curly hair must have
Even for curly haired children it is critical to beautiful, soft, healthy curls. Invest in a beautiful conditioner and use it whenever you wash their hair, avoiding the roots. They are a child so as they won’t need much so choose a lovely organic one rich with nutrients and oils or curl specific. Quality kids hair products can make a big difference.
Tip number 2 – Avoid the ‘just woke up’ fro, a kids silk pillowcase
Curly haired kids especially, can go to bed with beautiful, soft curls and wake up with a wild, tangled mess – a foot high!
This can happen because as we sleep we toss and turn and roll over and delicate hair follicles get pulled and stretched, they tag on the fabrics while we sleep causing damage to hair.
One of the best investments you can make as a parent of a child with curly hair is a silk pillowcase for them. Silk is good for hair. It doesn’t draw the good oils out like cotton and other fabrics can. Hair glides across silk so no stretched or damaged hair.
Try a silk pillowcase for curly hair kids and you will see so much less frizz and knots each morning. Plus, they get to feel like a Queen or King as they sleep on all that silky smooth softness.
Imagine if something as simple as a silk pillowcase could halve your kids hair brushing issues.
Tip number 3 – Wash and dry with care
Shampoo their hair every day, as it strips all the natural oils.
Blow dry unless you really have too.
Brush while bone dry – it can stretch the hair, lose curls and turn you into a cloud of frizz.
Use a fantastic conditioner in kids curly hair.
Let air-dry curly hair as much as possible after squeezing the water out.
Use a leave in conditioner when brushing. Some curly haired people find brushing curly hair in the shower after conditioning the best and then let it dry naturally.
Tip number 4 – Kids hair products. The right tools
Just like a builder wouldn’t use the wrong tools, neither should you with hair. The thing is too, we have to do our kids’ hair every morning for school for many, many years so getting the right tools and equipment when they are young is an investment in healthy hair, and your sanity!
Get the right brush
Ever stood and looked at the extensive range of brushes out there? Different brushes truly do different things to hair and curly hair needs its only style.
Brushing curly hair
Many say a wide toothed comb or a specific curly hair brush will make a huge difference. There are many on the market more suited to curly hair. Another tip is to brush out knots from lower curls first and work your way up to your crown.
Tip number 5 – Curly hair accessories
Just like the silk pillowcases are great for curly hair and the right brush reduces damage and pain, the accessories you use should be taken into account too. Kids scrunchies are always our first go to for any hair.
What should you use in curly hair?
First of all, throw out all those elastics that pull and grab at the hair. You know the kind, when you take them out of your child’s hair there is always a yelp and a few strand of hair with it!
Use something good for hair like silk hair scrunchies. Honestly, as a parent those screams as you try and put a lackey in or take one out, especially in kids with curly hair are just awful. And how many times are you already running late to get to school or its past bedtime too.
Silk hair scrunchies are kind to the hair. The silk fabric glides through the hair and still holds it firmly in place. After a week both you and your child will marvel at how much easier it is to put up, and take down their hair. Kids scrunchies in silk are a must have accessory.

Gizette W. Verified Buyer ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️ Perfect
I bought the two Pillow cases for my 3yr old.
She has Sensory Processing Disorder, this causes her to have issues with sleep and she moves so much at night. Thus in turn turning her hair into a massive birds nest, and brushing is NOT an option (Less I fancy an early morning wrestle match).
Since having the Pillow Cases, her hair has been noticeably smoother and easier to manage in the morning.
