Sustainable Threads

Regular price $80.00

Size 14"x72" 100% silk Cruelty-free silk Handwoven on bamboo looms Hand-braided fringe Azo-free dyes Dry clean recommended Crafted by tribal and rural artisans from Northern India 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. Empty cocoons are obtained after a patient wait for silk worms to metamorphose into moths. Silk threads are handspun 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.
