Description

This unique, luxurious silk is considered Cruelty-free and compassionate as as silk worms survive the process, unlike in conventional silks where they are killed or harmed. Cocoons are derived after a patient wait for silk worms to live out their life cycles, metamorphose into moths and vacate their cocoons. No pesticide, chemicals, or modern machines were used during any of the production process - low impact in every sense, this product may be down-to-earth, but for your home it's pure indulgence!
A minimalist design complements its luxurious texture & fine elegance.

A Fair Trade product. Handmade by artisans in India.

How It's Made

This special silk known as cruelty-free silk (also known as Ahimsa or non-violent silk) is the most humane of all silk production practices. The silk is harvested after the silkworms have vacated the cocoons as moths. The rupture causes the long, continuous silk strands to be broken into several shorter strands. These are hand spun on a spinning wheel and may have little nubs where two strands join. This process is highly valued, and offers greater degree of fiber purity, emphasizing the natural luster of the silk. 

In contrast, in conventional silks, the silkworms within the cocoons are killed as part of the process.

The silk is woven on zidagar frame looms. These looms are crafted from bamboo and other locally available materials.
