Organic Peace Silk
What is Organic Peace Silk?
Organic Peace Silk, also known as non-violent, cruelty-free or ahimsa silk. Peace Silk means the breeding and harvesting of silk is done according to the principle of AHIMSA (Sanskrit: non-violence/cruelty-free) and manufactured under the most stringent social and natural conditions.
Cruelty-Free Ethical Silk
It allows the completion of the metamorphosis of the silkworm to the moth stage, whereas most conventional silk manufacturing methods involve boiling the cocoons while the silkworm is still inside. No animal suffers or die for the silk to be produced, making it a favourable silk alternative to normal silk for those who do not believe in harming animals.
Once the butterflies have left their cocoons, the cocoons are processed without the use of harmful chemicals and the fibres are spun using solar-powered machinery.
This particular method can slow production, but it is fundamental to our philosophy and ethics.
Organic Silk Farming
Organic peace silk production is designed to sustain the health of soils, ecosystems and people. It means, the trees which provide the feed for the silkworms to grow are not treated with fungicides, insecticides or genetic sprays; this has a positive impact on the size of the cocoon and the quality of the silk thread, it also significantly reduces water pollution that results from conventional silk production practices. It also promotes better and healthier working conditions for the farmers too.
Silk is one of the the world's most natural luxurious, strong and durable fibers. It is a renewable resource and 100% biodegradable at the end of their lifecycle. Meaning, you can then use it in the production of compost or mulch, instead of dumping it at the garbage site, like you would do with the majority of petroleum-based and synthetic fabrics.
The silk is GOTS certified, farmed sustainably and produced free from harmful chemicals and dyes. It includes zero carbon production and 75% less water consumption than conventional silk too, making them a more sustainable, friendly and healthier choice.
Organic Peace Silk is the alternative for people who care about the lives of animals and the environment, and for the people who appreciate the queen of luxurious silk fibers feminine grace and beauty.
