What We Do?

Cocoons

Legend has it that the first silk was develop by the wife of the Yellow Emperor, Leize around the year 2696 BC. When sipping tea in the imperial gardens, a cocoon fell into her tea cup and unravelled. She noticed that the cocoon was actually made from a long, strong and yet soft thread. Leize then discovered how to combine the silk fibers into a thread which would be followed by a process of weaving in handlooms. Soon there has a forest of mulberry trees for silkworms to feed on and it wasn’t long before the rest of China caught up to the trend.

Considered a sacred gift from Mother Nature, our silk worms are treated with utmost respect. Unlike the larger part of the silk industries worldwide, we choose a non-violent way to develop yarns and fabrics that safe for the environment and those who wear it. ( Link to blog about our non-violent process - Read more here )

Yarns

We develop fine yarns with the help of advanced and innovative technology at our factory. With textile technologists and scientists probing into territories never explored before, we have been able to discover unique methods and processes that define our product in the market.

Handlooms

The age old tradition of handweaving is very dear to us. We consider it as a true source of inspiration and art. The care, love, compassion and meditations involved in the development of handwoven fabrics is difficult to express in words and can be understood only upon feeling the fabric. The touch of it can fill one with that aspect of nature which is raw and organic. A sense of nature that is passed on to us from the warm abodes of the handloom, from the touch of the weavers artistic hands and the spirits of the silkworms itself.Read More
