A minimalist design complements its luxurious texture & fine.
A Fair Trade product. Handmade by artisans in India.
How It's Made: This special silk known as cruelty-free silk (also known as Ahimsa or non-violent silk) is the most humane of all silk production practices. The cocoon is harvested after the silkworms turn into moths and vacate them.
