This silk is smooth and wrinkle free after weaving. Peace Silk ® also practices organic production methods unlike regular silk producers.
  • How is regular silk made?
    Regular silk is produced by boiling the pupae in cocoons, usually when they are alive and in the transformative stage going from silk worm to silk moth. This is done to preserve the longer silk filaments of the cocoon before it is spun and reeled to produce the silk textile. Regular silk producers also normally use chemicals and non-organic ingredients and dyes in their creation process. They therefore can pollute the environment.
