The bty.slp Peace Silk Pillowcase is made from 100% 22 momme Peace Silk.
Unfortunately in standard silk manufacturing processes; silk worms are killed once they have to spun their cocoon, in order to speed up the manufacturing process. This means - silk isn’t cruelty-free.
Unless a silk product is specified as “Peace Silk”, the silkworms have been killed in the manufacturing process.
Originally developed in India, the manufacturing process for Peace Silk allows the silk worm to hatch when it is fully developed and fly away once it has turned into a moth. The cocoon is then collected and turned into silk fabric.
By choosing a cruelty-free product you are demanding that the broader industries change their ways and consider kinder manufacturing processes. Thank you for your support in making Cruelty-Free practices becoming the norm!
