Peace Silk means that the silkworm can complete its life cycle and develop into a butterfly. Only empty cocoons are processed in Peace Silk's silk farming. This particular method is fundamental to our philosophy of non-violent silk production. Once the butterflies have left their cocoons, the processing of the cocoons into yarn and fabrics occurs without the use of harmful chemicals. Peace Silk is the alternative for people who care about the lives of animals, for people who appreciate the queen of natural fibers.
For newborns, it is recommended to choose clothes with long sleeves. In the first few weeks of life in particular, you can prevent a cold by providing sufficient warmth on the forearms. In a child who is not wrapped warm enough, heat is drawn from the internal organs (which are still growing) in order to maintain the surface temperature of the skin. Silk has a soothing and healing effect on the skin and absorbs up to 30% of its own weight in moisture without feeling damp. It is highly elastic, breathable and temperature regulating and also ideal for allergy sufferers. Naturopathic doctors recommend silk especially for skin diseases. It has been proven that silk can relieve irritated skin and accelerate wound healing.
ALKENA natural textiles are produced in China, the traditional country of silk. New projects for the production of organic silk have developed at various locations. The production facilities (spinning, dyeing, knitting, weaving and sewing) are GOTS certified and are regularly checked for social compatibility by the Fair Wear Foundation. This achieves the highest possible standard for ecological and social sustainability.
