What is DEVA Peat Silk?
The silk for our textiles comes from biological silk breeding and GOTS certified production. The silkworms are not killed, but can slip out of the cocoon and complete their life cycle (Peace Silk, Ahimsa silk).
The activation of the silk textiles with the specific properties of the peat fibers takes place through processes in which peat fibers and other constituent and beneficial substances from the nature are involved.
The interaction of the refined peat with the Peace Silk makes many people feel invigorating and protective for their organism when using these textiles as clothing and in designing the living space.
DEVA Torfseide is particularly suitable for people who suffer from high sensitivity to electro-magnetic radiation and negative environmental influences.
DEVA Peat Silk is also suitable for babies and toddlers. Silk has been shown to help relieve irritated skin and accelerate wound healing. Sericin (silk glue - especially in the Bouretteseide) has a skin-soothing and anti-inflammatory effect. Link to the study...
You can order all undyed Peace Silk fabrics with DEVA activation. The process takes 3 to 5 days. After that, the peat properties are associated with the silk fabric. It is advisable to insert a peat-silk thread into the hems of the textiles in order to improve the effect and to maintain it permanently. From the dyed silk fabrics, INDIGO and RYNDIA madder can be activated as DEVA peat silk.
