Peace Silk (108cm/43") – Sanctity
A satin fabric with a composition of 95% Silk and 5% Lycra, this is a 'Peace' or 'Ahimsa' Silk, that measures 108 cm (43%) wide. Peace silks are woven using filament that is harvested from cocoons from which the silk worm is allowed to hatch. The silk worm becomes a moth and the vacant cocoons are used. Available in ivory, black, ice blue, lilac rose and silver.
Peace Silk is also known as "Non Violent" Silk and is the alternative for people who have the life of animals at Heart. The Silk Fibres come from empty cocoons. The silk worms have hatched from the cocoon after its transformation into a moth or have been carefully removed from the cocoon before further processing.
Silk made in this way is more expensive as the process requires approximately an extra fortnight to allow the larvae to grow and the moths to hatch. Also the cocoons are partially eaten during the hatching process so that the yield is far lower.
The materials used in this process are certified in accordance with GOTS, and are therefore produced in a fashion that is both ecologically and socially responsible.
