Community and Craftsmanship
We focus on the fashion industry's positive impact on local communities, skills, and craftsmanship to sustain future generations' livelihoods by encouraging equality and diversity and empowering workforces throughout our supply chain and shop floor.
SUPPORTING TRADITIONAL CRAFTSMANSHIP
For many years, the most prominent place for silkworm cultivation in Jharkhand, India, saw farming villages give over to factory-made fabrics. However, since the introduction of Organic Peace Silk, the team has been working with nearby villagers on the biological and non-cruel process to rear silk cocoons without using any pesticides, fungicides, toxic chemicals or genetic sprays. Today, villagers who want to learn regenerative agriculture methods and traditional spinning yarn methods to weaving new fabrics are provided training through our supplier. These initiatives support the revival of the ancestral traditions of silk making and people's livelihood through ethical production.
PROMOTING FAIR TRADE & ETHICS
Fairtrade is about better prices, decent working conditions, local sustainability, and fair terms of trade for farmers and workers in the developing world. We purchase our raw materials directly from our mills, which employs over 40 sericulture farmers and 50 weavers and their families in the local villages of Jharkhand, India. We pay a premium price to the farmers for their fibres and the makers, which addresses conventional trade injustices that traditionally discriminates against the small producers.
