Description

This unique, luxurious silk is considered cruelty-free and compassionate as silk worms aren’t harmed, unlike in conventional silk making, in which cocoon extraction involves killing silk worms in boiling water. Vacated cocoons are obtained after a patient wait for silk worms to metamorphose into moths. Silk threads are hand spun then handwoven to create this exclusive piece!

Cocoon cultivators, spinners, dyers, weavers and tailors are all part of the community of rural artisans who benefit from this effort.

A Fair Trade product. Handmade by artisans in India.
