Organic Rosepetal Fibre
Rose Petal Fiber is another one of the new vegan handwoven fibers made from roses. The rose petal fiber is extracted from the natural waste of rose petals and rose bushes. Then is the fiber stripped and processed to create a luxurious soft spinning fiber, similar to silk.
Rose petal fiber is very fine and quite slippery so it needs to be spun with a tight twist.
This fiber is an environmentally friendly, green eco fiber and it is bio-degradable.
Peace / Ahimsa / Raw Silk
Raw silk is the most natural form of delicate fiber which can get easily and smoothly woven into different fabrics and garments.
Only the cocoons of the silk producing worms are used so therefore is the worm not harmed. Once the silkworm completes cocoon, the cocoon is placed in boiling water to get individual longer fibers which used in the spinning reel. Then the silk is boiled in soap and water, leaving it soft and lustrous.
The yarns are used to weave in together and form the finest and the most delicate form of texture, which has never faded in its popularity through the decades.
It is considered to be the oldest and the finest fabrics across the world. According to Indian History, this shimmering fabric traces its roots of origin and existence way back to the Indus Valley Civilization.
Ahimsa (non-violence) is one of 10 Yogic Vows, this is the meaning:
We hurt ourselves (and of course others) whenever we allow emotional outbursts—or even entertain thoughts—expressing hatred, anger, or ill will. Violence toward oneself is equally disallowed by an ethical consciousness. Ahimsa is an inherent part of our natural state. We are beings of divine love and compassionate fellowship. When we recognize our Being as pure Presence and enter into the silence of the Heart, we become Love. There is no violence in our authentic essence.
Ahimsa is the establishment of one’s character in complete nonviolence in thought, word, and deed, in relation to all beings, including the self. When ahimsa becomes the way of life for humanity at large, through the power of our morphogenetic field, there will be world peace.
Cotton is a soft, fluffy staple fibre that grows in a boll, or protective capsule, around the seeds of cotton plants. The plant is a shrub native to tropical and subtropical regions around the world, including the Americas, Africa, and India. The fibre most often is spun into yarn or thread and used to make a soft, breathable textile, which is the most widely used natural-fibre cloth in clothing today.
Organic cotton is a more positive and sustainable alternative than conventional cotton. It is made from non-genetically modified plants that are grown without the use of any synthetic agricultural chemicals such as fertilizers or pesticides. This makes it better for the environment, the climate and the health of the people involved.
Instead of using fertilizers, farmers will either: use organic sprays such as garlic, chillies and soap that get rid of the wrong insects without affecting the good ones; or they will companion plant, using other species in between the cotton to deter and confuse pests. Many cotton pests prefer maize, sunflower, sweet sorghum, pigeon pea and ocra to cotton, so these are used as trap crops, keeping pests away from the cotton plants.
Organic cotton is not only softer on your skin, but it has huge positive environmental impacts too.
Without the use of pesticides, beneficial insects remain in the ecosystem, biodiversity is conserved, soil has higher organic matter content which prevents soil erosion, and any water run-off is safe from chemicals which protects surrounding plants, waterways and therefore anyone who uses that water. It is also safer for the farmers, who are not breathing in or digesting harmful pesticides and herbicides.
Organic cotton provides high quality products that are soft and breathable – much kinder to the skin.
Unfortunately, less than 0.1% of global cotton production is organic – But we are here to bring the change!
