However it is still considered a healthy organic fabric.  Peace silk may be a vegan alternative as it is made with no harm the silk worm. Here are some ethical and environmentally conscious manufacturers of silk to consider for your next project.

Smita formed Indigo Handloom not just to celebrate the beautiful fabrics produced by centuries-old weaving practices, but also the weavers themselves, most of whom struggle to support themselves and their families with a living wage.Despite a surging Indian economy, weavers, farmers, and other members of the rural poor are faced with worsening economic conditions; indeed, since 2006, government sponsored subsidies for handloom associations (many of which supplied raw materials, micro-loans, and marketing and design assistance) have virtually disappeared, leaving many artisans without the guidance and financial support they need to pass on their talents to the next generation.

  1. Hi I am interested in developing my brand further into an eco-friendly possible peace silk type of under garment production. I am wondering what you offer in the way of under garment, night wear and robe type production. Now my brand focuses on skincare and my own line is vegan and eco-friendly so would like to continue that philosophy in my under garment line too. I would love to hear more and then go and see about the starter kit etc. Thanks so much for any information!!
