To practice vegetable dyeing, it is necessary to proceed on 100% natural fibers. Thus, we favor recycled natural fabrics, such as linen, cotton and silk to avoid textile waste and limit the environmental impact in the production of raw materials.

In addition to this, you will need to know more about it.

Non-recycled fibers are organic and respectful of life. Indeed, for non-recycled silk, we source our supplies from a silk producer Ahimsa, alias Soie de la Paix.

Silk Ahimsa means non-violent rearing and silk production, which allows the moth caterpillar (mulberry bombyx) to complete its metamorphosis from the silkworm, so that no animal suffers or dies for it. ready to wear. It is a silk that is produced according to the strictest social and ecological standards in India, the culture not being on French or European territory.

Sericulture takes place under natural conditions. Trees in which silkworms grow are not treated with fungicides, insecticides or genetic sprays. To protect caterpillars and leaves from other insects or birds, the entire tree is covered with a netting, similar to a mosquito net.

As soon as the silkworms have spun the cocoons, they are kept in a protected place until the nymph emerges from the cocoon in the form of a beautiful butterfly. This process can take 2-4 weeks.

This particular method slows down production, but it is fundamental to the philosophy of non-violent silk manufacturing.
