Natural Does Not Mean Cruelty-Free

NON-VIOLENT SILK IS A HIGHER QUALITY MATERIAL THAN TRADITIONAL SILK. SILK IS MADE FROM CATERPILLAR COCOONS. TO SOURCE CONVENTIONAL SILK, THE COCOONS ARE BOILED WHICH MAKES THE SILKWORMS DIE HARASSINGLY. EVEN THOUGH IT’S A NATURAL PRODUCT CONVENTIONAL SILK IS NOT CRUELTY FREE.

AHIMSHA SILK – THE CRUELTY-FREE SOLUTION

.

ORGANIC, NON-VIOLENT SILK (ALSO CALLED AHIMSA SILK) SOLVES THIS PROBLEM: THE SILK I USE IS SUSTAINABLE, ETHICALLY PRODUCED AND CRUELTY FREE. THE COCOONS OF THE AHIMSA SILK CATERPILLARS ARE NOT PROCESSED INTO YARN UNTIL THE BUTTERFLIES THAT EMERGE FROM THE COCOON HAVE HATCHED NATURALLY.

THE SILK WORMS CAN CONTINUE THEIR LIFECYCLE AND ARE KEPT IN SPECIES-APPROPRIATE LIVING CONDITIONS AT LARGE FIELDS. SILK IS 100% BIO-DEGRADABLE. ALL OF THESE ASPECTS BENEFIT THE ENVIRONMENT.

THE SILK I USE HAS BEEN PRODUCED ACCORDING TO ONE OF THE STRICTEST NATURAL TEXTILE STANDARDS CURRENTLY AVAILABLE. ALL PRODUCTION PLANTS ARE CERTIFIED (SPINNING MILL, KNITTING MILL, WEAVING AND DYEING MILL).

ALSO, I ONLY USE HIGH QUALITY ORGANIC ADDITIONAL MATERIAL TO PROVIDE YOU THE HIGHEST POSSIBLE STANDARD OF ENVIRONMENTAL AND SOCIAL SUSTAINABILITY. FOR THE SCRUNCHIES AND MASKS I USE RECYCLED OR ORGANICALLY DERIVED RUBBER BAND AND YARN.

DID YOU KNOW? SILK HAS A LOT OF BENEFITS FOR YOUR SKIN AND HAIR!
