About Organic Peace Silk
Ethical Kind’s Organic Peace Silk also known as non-violent, cruelty-free or ahimsa silk comes from India. Its breeding and harvesting of the silk is manufactured under the most stringent social and natural conditions. While conventional silk manufacturing methods involve boiling the cocoons while the silkworm is still inside, Peace Silk allows the completion of the metamorphosis of the silkworm to the butterfly, so no animal suffers for fashion. Once the butterflies have left their cocoons, the cocoons are processed without the use of harmful chemicals and the fibres are spun using solar-powered machinery making the production eco-friendly. Organic silk production means, the silkworms are rear outdoors and the trees which provide the feed for the silkworms to grow are not treated with fungicides, insecticides or genetic sprays; this has a positive impact on the size of the cocoon and the quality of the silk thread, it also significantly reduces water pollution that results from conventional silk production practices.
