Peace Silk Or Ahimsa Silk

"Ahimsa" is a Sanskrit term that means "non-violence". In the context of silk fiber production, "Ahimsa" refers to the ethical treatment of silkworms. Instead of boiling the silk cocoon or piercing it in order to release the silk fiber from the cocoon before the moth could emerge, killing the silkworm in the process, the Ahimsa or Peace Silk is only extracted after the silkworm has completd the methamorphosis process, emerging from its cocoon. This means that the silkworm is allowed to complete an entire life cycle unharmed.
