ASAL’s non-violent silk

ASAL’s non violent Silk does away with brutal practices in the production of silk without compromising on the quality of output – which actually improves because of fiber purity. Unlike the conventional method where pupae are killed before reeling yarn from the cocoons, in the production of non violent silk the adult moths are allowed to emerge alive from the cocoons and then the silk yarn is spun from the open-ended (eri) cocoons and from pierced tassar and muga cocoons that have been used in breeding cycles or those found in jungles.
It is essentially non-mulberry silk – from inherently non-reelable eri silk cocoons and non-violently processed tassar and muga cocoons. Eri fabric keeps the body cool in summer and warm in winter and is available in a range of colors.
