Collections of data are often meaningless without order and structure, but how can you best show off a carefully ordered collection or list without building your own website from scratch? What if the data you’re using has statistics attached which you’d like to exhibit in a coherent way? If the thought of embedding a few Google Spreadsheets in your own code and attempting to organize by hand doesn’t really appeal to you then you might want to try Silk.
The free service is designed to help organise collections. These collections can be a list of favourite places, authors or brands. They could also be objective lists with data attached, complete with interactive charts or maps. If you have a collection with data attached to it, Silk wants to make that collection look beautiful and give it the attention it deserves.
The service is designed to be clean, modern and simple with an emphasis on structure and organisation.
By giving each item in your collection its own page, Silk lets your visitors learn more about the things you’re passionate about. Examples from the service include a tiny guide to Madrid and The Incredible Solar System, a collection that puts the size of our neighbouring celestial bodies in context. Silk helps make your data and lists look beautiful but also makes them readable for the rest of the Web to enjoy too.
- Organise subjective and objective collections based on rating, location, size and other data.

- Build a variety of interactive charts and maps.
