Peace silk is also known as Ahimsa Silk literally meaning non-violence silk. Unlike conventional silk, Peace silk is made from abandoned silk worm cocoons.
When the moth hatches, it breaks the silk thread that protects the pupa.
Artisans have to carefully unwind the thread from the cocoon and weave them together. It is biodegradable and can also be recycled. Silk has temperature regulating properties. Clothing made from these is known as Sustainable Peace Silk/ Ahimsa Silk Clothing.
