Silk combines many ideal properties: due to its low density it is light and comfortable to wear and the skin compatibility is excellent. Silk has very good insulating properties: it protects against heat during the summer and from cold in winter. Clothing made of silk has - against  synthetic fibers - the additional advantage of being odor-resistant and extremely hard wearing. Silk is the most natural natural fiber and has a soothing and healing effect on allergies and skin problems.

 

We feel committed to the priciples of "Slow Fashion". The production of the textiles takes place as far as possible in manual work. We attach great importance to sustainability. Through this project, we promote organic farming and avoid harmful effects on the environment.The working conditions are socially designed and take into account the cultural conditions. The value-added chain takes place from the partial production to the ready-made in Meghalaya. This avoids  transports three times around the world for the different work steps and the added value directly benefits the indigenous tribes.
