"Organic silk", also known as Ahimsa silk, Peace silk or Vegan Silk is produced from a cocoon from which the silk moth is naturally released. It is a non-violent method of silk production.
Silk produced in this way has a "linen like" texture and slub, due to the shorter strands of silk.
** all our items have been in quarantine before despatch to you.
This natural silk is made by a collaborative venture of tribal silkworm rearers. Poor rural women make the yarn, which is woven by handloom weavers in the hinterlands of India. The silk is then hand block printed. In this way, employment is provided to disadvantaged groups living in remote areas, enabling them to experience self-dependence and better living standards.
Vibrant colours and hand block printing on hand spun, hand woven organic tussar silk make each shawl unique. Due to the hand spun nature of the silk, slight variations in the thickness may occur; we feel this just adds to the beauty of the shawl. Each shawl is unique.
This beautiful silk will get softer with wear and develop a wonderful drape.
Your shawl will arrive carefully gift wrapped.** Each Shawl will arrive with a complimentary face mask**
100% pure organic Tussar silk. Due to the handmade nature of this fantastic shawl, there may be slight irregularities. These are an integral, and we think wonderful, part of owning one of these beautiful "works of art".
