THE JOURNEY

This is the full journey of black Aesthete lingerie.

STEP 01. THE MULBERRY TREE

The journey of all black Aesthete lingerie start in the fields of Mulberry trees in Eastern India. The silk fabric is produced organically without herbicides, fertilizers or genetic spray and respecting non-violence. Giving it the name peace silk.

STEP 02. EVOLVING

The silk worn eats away at the delicious mulberry leaves. After 20-33 days it is fully grown and will now create a cocoon from one continous silk threads, which can be up to one kilometer long! 

STEP 03. PEACEFUL PRACTICES

In the making of peace silk the moth will not be scalded in hot water, as is the traditional proces. The silk moth can now find a mate and and create eggs for new life cycles. This practice is also called non-violence and the silk is also referred to as vegan silk. 

The broken silk filaments are hand twisted and machine woven, which gives it its unique character. 

STEP 04. FROM FIBRE TO FABRIC

Our peace silk is created under a project in Jharkhand, Eastern India, called Cocoon founded in 2012. The project focus on organic practices and bringing back the profits for the people who cultivate and make the silk, and not the middlemen. 

Our peace silk is organically grown and wrought, and is today certified organic. Our batch was created during the very last audits, but before the certification was on paper. The practices where precisely the same. This assures you that our silk is made in good conditions both socially and environmentally from seed to finished garment.  

The fabric is then dyed at a Oeko-tex standard 100 facility, to create non-toxic pitch black lingerie.
