Raw Material

This product is made primarily from Silk and Viscose.

Conventional silk  production is associated with comparatively extensive use of chemicals, very high footprint on water and energy consumption and on water pollution. It involves labour intensive techniques. Despite being biodegradable, it can be finished with chemicals that can hinder its biodegradability. So eco impact is very high.

Viscose/rayon fibre uses as raw fibre wood pulp. It can often be associated with unsustainable deforestation. The manufacturing of this fibre involves extensive chemical processes involving a significant water pollution footprint. Eco impact is high.
