  Woman spinning peace silk yarn in India


For many years, Jharkhand being the most prominent place for silkworm cultivation in 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, training is provided to villagers who want to learn regenerative agriculture methods and traditional spinning yarn methods to weaving new fabrics. These initiatives supports the revival of the ancestral traditions of silk making and people's livelihood through ethical production.

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 who 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, which traditionally discriminates against the small producers.

We take pride in that Project Cocccon operates a local primary school with a Public-Private Partnership at the silk farm. The partnership enables children of employees to receive a free quality education and provide a knowledge foundation for a better future.

For 2021, we will donate 5% of the net revenue to "Adivasi Kalyan Samitee" to provide education facilities for children at Marghantu middle school in Jharkhand, India. Learn more here.
