Handwoven by skilled indigenous artisans, this silk is considered compassionate, as silk worms survive the process, unlike in conventional silk production. Artisans hand spin cocoons left behind by moths into yarn, then weave the yarn on traditional bamboo looms. The yarn is colored with natural plant dyes. A low impact fabric, with no pesticides and little water required to rear silk worms.
