Made from tussah silk and naturally-grown hemp raised as a companion crop in the fields of China without the use of pesticides or chemical fertilizers. The vast, vast majority of the silkworms are allowed to work their way free of the cocoon and continue their lives; the few that don't end up as highly-prized delicacies for the fiber workers. Farm and mill workers are paid a fair wage for their work, receive benefits, and have a significant amount of say about their jobs. Purchase this fabric knowing you are making a difference!
