AHIMSA SILK

Ahimsa silk is a non-violent and eco-friendly process by which silk worms are not killed during the manufacture of silk. The texture and fabric of ahimsa silk are unique — giving it a character of it’s own . The Hindi word “ahimsa” means Non-violence. It is used to describe this innovation because the fabric is manufactured in a process where silkworms are not killed.
For this reason , the product is also known as peace silk . Ahimsa silk is promoted as having the popular properties of regular silk. Even though it is slightly less lustrous, it is even softer to the touch. Our Ahimsa Silks have a characteristic irregular structure obtained by the hand work process.

KHADI COTTON

Khadi cotton is handspun and hand-woven cotton fabric made by thousands of skilled artisans living in rural areas. Khadi is cool, comfortable and truly environment friendly fabric suitable for all types of season. It falls well and becomes second skin after two washes.

The fabric got its importance from Mahatma Gandhi when he revived the 5000 year old process of hand wovening as part of his movement of freedom fight in 1920’s. Our khadi cottons are most made of organic cotton.

ORGANIC COTTON

Organic cotton is grown without pesticides, chemical fertilizers or any other chemicals. It is grown using methods and materials that have a low impact on the environment and farm workers. Though organic cotton farming represents a significantly smaller environmental footprint, it cost more to produce. But the benefits against conventional cotton are vast. It gains large benefits on humantiy and our eco-system such as massive saving our precious water, no poluting of environment through toxic exposure, ensuring a healthier working environmental for the farmers and mill workers and providing a healthier, higher-quality product without skin-irritation for the end user.

People with allergies and chemical sensitivity especially benefit from organic cotton clothing. Even if you don’t have sensitive skin, organic cotton will just feel better against your skin. Organic cotton has furher the same properties as conventional cotton, it has only an amazing softer touch which is excisted by using no chemicals.
