OUR SILK & PROCESS
Regular silk is produced by boiling the pupae in cocoons 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.
On the other hand, Peace Silk ® allows the silk moth to be set free. The silk cocoon is carefully cut open and the developing moth escapes to complete it's life cycle. Although the silk filaments are shorter, a technique was devised to expertly reel and spin the threads to produce a completed yarn. Our Peace Silk ® is Charmeuse, very smooth and wrinkle free.
Peace Silk ® is grown and produced in a unique and sustainable way, which results in organic and bespoke products. Unlike traditional, mass made silk production which often happens in factories and which pollutes the earth.
Peace Silk ® is an all natural product, the bounty of mother nature. It is undyed and still in its natural state and colour. Beautiful in ivory white. It is possible to naturally and organically dye Peace Silk ® to a variety of different colours.
Peace Silk ® is such a visceral, delicate and beautiful wonder of nature. It is produced by thousands of beautiful silk worms. Peace Silk ® respects each little creature allowing them to complete their lifecycle. Peace Silk ® is also produced using organic practices. Hence Peace Silk ® is cruelty free and organic while caring for planet earth and it's inhabitants.
