Peace Silk fabrics and yarns are produced without killing silkworms, also called AHIMSA. It is a Sanskrit term for the principal of non-violence, which reflects the attitude of mankind towards animals and nature in many eastern culturs and religions. The silk worm can terminate its metamorphosis to a pupae. The fibers are reeled from the empty cocoon after the pupae has removed.

Principally, Peace  Silk can be used wherever unpolluted and ethically acceptable fabrics play an important role. When used for the purpose of clothing (e.g. as bridal gown) or in interior design the silk will have a beneficial effect on the surroundings. The positive influence of the silk can even be applied in therapeutic work.
