Visions become true!
"...non-violent silk certified by GOTS from sustainable agriculture, handspun and handwoven, dyed with natural dyes, manufactured under social and fair conditions..."
Dear [NAME],
this has been my wish about two years ago - and now it is reality! In collaboration with the Indian designer Prakash Jha and his project COCCCON we are proud to offer you organic silk fabrics from chemical-free agriculture where the fibers are produced non-violent and are handwoven by indigenous weavers. The fabric is dyed with herbal dyes and the certification by GOTS is initiated. Do you want any more!?
Besides that we have relaunched our webshop to make the online shopping easier and to improve the custom service.
The benefits for you:
  • You can now choose purchase on account or immediately online payment by SOFORT banking
  • The zoom into the product photos gives you a more exact picture of the weave
  • If you register as a client you will have always the overview about your orders and invoices
  • You have only once to fill in the form with your personal data
  • Get automatically a message if a not available item is again in stock 
  • By one mouse click you can see alternative items
  • The new button "ask a question" on every product page
Enough the words - look by yourself - we are looking forward your visit!
