What is Peace Silk ?

The loveliest way to wear silk

Peace Silk means non-violent silk breeding and harvesting. It allows the completion of the metamorphosis of the silkworm to the butterfly, so that no animal has to suffer or die for fashion. Peace Silk (Non-Violent Silk, Ahimsa Silk) is manufactured under stringent social and environmental standards in India and is mostly certified to the Global Organic Textile Standard (GOTS).

The silkworm breeding takes place under natural conditions. The trees where the silkworms grow are not treated with fungicides, insecticides or genetic sprays. To protect the caterpillars and leaves from other insects or birds, the entire tree is covered with a net, similar to a mosquito net.

Once the silkworms have spun the cocoons, they are kept in a sheltered place until the pupae hatches out of the cocoon as a beautiful butterfly. This process can take 2 to 4 weeks. This particular method slows production, but is fundamental to our philosophy of producing silk non-violently. Once the butterflies have left their cocoons, the cocoons are processed 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.
