SiderealPeaceSilkCo

Halifax, Nova Scotia

Announcement    Welcome to Sidereal! Our journey began while dreaming of creating with the beauty and ethos of peace silk and the serendipitous wonder of botanical dying.

Our silk pillowslips are soft, luxurious and support both hair and skin health, while promoting a restful sleep. Left natural or hand-dyed with pigments derived from flora, fruits and vegetables, our pillowslips and meditation eye pillows have the added benefit of being free of any toxins or chemicals. Our skin is our largest organ and absorbs what rests against it day and night, so we are excited to create products that are healthy for our bodies as well as the earth!

Scrunchies are made in small batches from remnants of silk, biodegradable elastic, and are botanically dyed in various shades.

As peace silk allows for the full metamorphosis and life cycle of the silkworm, while traditional methods do not, our products support a growing industry that we believe to be a more sustainable and thoughtful way of enjoying the beauty and benefits of silk.

Thank you for supporting our small business!

More about us and our process:

We are artists who have discovered a shared love of creating with peace silk! Together we are the designers and makers of Sidereal and each of our products are handmade with love from our home studios in Ottawa, ON and Halifax, NS.

We use only ethically made, GOTS certified organic textiles and notions, so our products are 100% Biodegradable and can simply be returned to the earth!

Our peace silk is fairly produced in India.

In traditional silk harvesting, cocoons are submerged in boiling water with the silkworm alive inside, resulting in its death. In peace silk production cocoons are left alone for seven to ten days. Once the worms mature, they are allowed to pierce the cocoons and fly away as moths! Only then does the manufacture of peace silk begin. Each cocoon is checked individually to ensure that the moth has emerged before the silk thread is spun. Peace silk has many of the same properties of regular silk - it might be less lustrous but is also very soft. The labor intensive process and time consumption adds to the higher price.

Botanical dying is a mystical process! No two dye vats are the same and the alchemy creates an extraordinary range and variety of colours, resulting in truly one of a kind designs.

We are excited to be on this journey of creating with peace silk, promoting the health benefits derived from its use and supporting the growing equitable and sustainable textile industry.

Thank you for joining us!

Best wishes, Iris and Morven
