Ahimsa Silk continued

Earlier, we posted a little something about Ahimsa silks, the environmentally friendly silk. For people who do not believe in killing the silk-worms to use the thread to weave sarees, or those who just do not want to wear silk for any other reasons including veganism, Ahimsa could be the perfect replacement.

Basically, unlike traditional silk, Ahimsa silk's threads are taken our after the cocoon leaves the nest. Therefore, there is absolutely no harm done to the silk worm. Regardless, beautiful colors and prints are available in this type of silk, and evidence is shown in the photos above. The material has a very silkish feel, yet is completely weightless on the body once worn.

Both of these sarees are available at RU Creations.
