Organic silk from China – Peace Silk from India

Have a look to the flip book "Organic Silk by Seidentraum"...

The production of our organic silk fabrics from mulberry silk, eri silk and tussah silk is carried out in organic farming in India and China. The food plants of the silkworms come mainly from wild collection. The cultivation of the mulberry trees takes place in a sustainable mixed culture with fruit and other trees. The negative impact of a monoculture on soil and the environment will be avoided and biodiversity will be preserved. Artificial fertilizers, antibiotics and growth-promoting hormones are consistently dispensed with. The silkworms receive high quality feed. The standard complies with the requirements for the designation kbT of the European eco-regulation EC 834/2007.

Eco - Fair - Sustainable

The trees are not merely grown as a monoculture, but flourish in close proximity of fruit and other types of trees following biodynamical methods. This guarantees a higher biodiversity and a less disastrous distribution of diseases due to the lower density. Artificial fertilizers, antibiotics and growth-enhancing hormones are avoided by all means to preserve a healthy balance. The silkworms profit from feed that is high in quality, which, subsequently, results in the production of valuable silk threads.

The textile production follows the guidelines of the Global Organic Textile Standard. The production companies (spinning, dyeing, knitting, weaving and sewing) are GOTS certified and regularly checked for social compatibility. Working conditions are social and fair and the standards of the International Labor Organization ILO are respected.Hence why, we guarantee that the highest standards of ecology and sustainable development are respected.

Concerning the GOTS certification of our textiles we want point out:

Silk fabrics with the denomination "manufacturd according GOTS" are produced in accordance with the highest organic textile standard, the GLOBAL ORGANIC TEXTILE STANDARD. All mills are GOTS certified (spinning, dyeing, weaving, stitching, knitting). As the chain of dealers is not completely certified we can not label these fabrics as "GOTS certified". Nevertheless it is high grade organic quality that guarantees the highest possible level for ecological and social sustainibility. The textile chain from the silk rearing to the counter is eco-friendly, sustainable and fair.

The issue of TCs for these silk fabrics is unfortunately, because of the regulations of the GOTS, not possible.
