This unique, luxurious silk is considered cruelty-free and compassionate as silk worms aren't harmed, unlike in conventional silk-making, in which cocoon extraction involves killing silk worms in boiling water. Empty cocoons are obtained after a patient wait for silk worms to metamorphose into moths. No pesticide, chemicals, or modern machines are used in any of the production processes.

A minimalist design complements its luxurious texture & fine elegance. Low impact in every sense, this product may be down-to-earth, but for your home it's pure indulgence!

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 cocoon is harvested after the silkworms turn into moths and vacate them. The rupture causes the long, continuous silk strands to be broken into several shorter strands. These are handspun on a spinning wheel and may have little nubs where two strands join. This process is highly valued, and offers a 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 which are crafted from bamboo and other locally available materials.
