Our Mission

Peace Silk from India

The rise of mass fashion is largely responsible for the destruction of the environment and social conditions in many parts of our world. Seidentraum is committed to changing the textile production that respects nature and people. It's the only way to keep our planet and the fashion industry alive at the same time.

Our philosophy

We support our partners in India in changing social conditions. The manual production of the silk yarns and fabrics takes place with the involvement of disadvantaged women groups in the villages and with our support we actively help that children in Jharkhand can attend a school.

We trade exclusively with Peace Silk. Peace Silk means: The silkworm can complete its metamorphosis and fly out of the cocoon as a beautiful butterfly. So no animal suffers in the manufacture of silk clothing and other wonderful textiles. No silkworm dies when the cocoons are otherwise dried using superheated steam or boiling water.

Our organic silk fabrics made from Mulberry silk, Eri silk and Tussah silk come from organic farming in India and Turkey. Much of the forage crops for the silkworms grow naturally in the region. The mulberry trees are cultivated in a sustainable mixed culture with fruit and other trees. The negative effects of a monoculture on the soil and the environment are thus avoided and biodiversity is preserved. Artificial fertilizers, antibiotics and growth-promoting hormones are consistently avoided.

Our Peace Silk (Ahimsa Silk, non-violent silk) is produced in India under strict social and ecological standards and is mainly manufactured according to the Global Organic Textile Standard (GOTS). This guarantees the highest possible standard for ecological and social sustainability.

We are committed to changing the fashion industry - away from cheap and unhealthy disposable clothing that only lasts a few months - towards durable, sustainable and yet fashionable textiles from artisan production.

We are committed to changing consumer awareness, questioning the conditions under which their clothing is made and showing the benefits of sustainable, healthy and fair textiles.

With regard to the GOTS certification of our products, we would like to point out the following:

Due to the regulations of the GOTS for the designation of textiles, only those fabrics can be marked as "certified according to the Global Organic Textile Standard (GOTS)" whose entire textile chain is completely certified. For us as a retailer, this means: As soon as we don't resell a fabric in the original packaging as a whole bale, but instead cut off individual pieces of it, the GOTS chain is considered broken and the fabric can no longer be described as "GOTS-certified".

A fabric that is manufactured according to the strict guidelines of the GOTS and that we buy directly from a certified manufacturer is unfortunately not allowed to carry a GOTS certificate. It is therefore unfortunately not possible to issue delivery slips. You can recognize these fabrics in our range by the certification "manufactured according to GOTS".
