Silk is said to be the queen of natural fibers, is breathable and has the ability to regulate the body temperature. The organic and fair produced Ahimsa Silk is made without killing any silkworms through the process, unlike how conventional silk is made. ”Ahimsa” is a Sanskrit term, means ”Peace” and reflects the attitude of mankind towards animals and nature in many eastern cultures. The fabric is manufactured in India under fair, social conditions. Find out more about the production and Ahimsa Silk.
