Sustainable Silk: Silk is hand woven in India using individual family weavers that we are directly supporting. Mulberry leaves that are fed to the silkworms, are organically fertilized with compost from Neem trees. Fabrics are made on hand made wooden looms - some of which are at least 100 years old. No electrical energy is used in the spinning, weaving or dyeing process, leaving a zero carbon foot print.
