Who made the sleep mask?
The women from CWSG make the sleep mask, which comes in a beautiful embroidered pouch made from handwoven cotton from Weavers Village in Cambodia.
What is Peace Silk/Ahimsa Silk?
Silk is such a beautiful and versatile material, and I knew from the beginning, that I wanted to sell silk products in my shop, but when I was looking for suppliers, I was shocked to find out how silk is typically made. Did you know that the traditional way to produce silk is to boil the cocoons with the silkworms inside? Many hundreds of silkworms are boiled alive, just to make one scarf! That seemed unnecessary to me (what a waste of butterflies), so I started looking for alternative ways of making silk, and I found out about Peace silk.
Peace silk is made without harming the silkworms, which are allowed to hatch and become butterflies. It takes longer time and it is a more expensive process, but no butterflies die in the process which is why Peace silk is also called peace silk and non-violent silk.
