The Ethical Silk Company produces 100% eco-friendly & ethically made mulberry silk products, where no silkworms are harmed or killed in the production process, resulting in beautiful natural mulberry silk. All tailoring is done in the Himalayan Tailoring Centre, a fairtrade unit in Dharmsala, run by Eternal Creation. The centre employs over 70 staff, spanning Tibetan, Nepalese and Indian cultures, and encompassing Buddhist, Hindu and Muslim faiths. Rather than outsource to meet growing demand, a focus is made on increasing the capacity of the workshop, providing more jobs for the local community and ensuring high quality standards and ethical principles are maintained.
We divide 10% of our profits between Focus Ireland (5%) and the Jeevan Jothi AIDS Centre in Theni (5%), run by the Presentation Sisters.
