Ahimsa is a Sanskrit word that means non-violence or non-harming.

I buy my fibers from small farms where the animals are treated well and not eaten or sold for their meat.

I use cultivated “peace silk” and wild silk, which is left by the silk moth after they immerge from their cocoon to finish their short but valuable lifespan.

I proudly use Earthhuses natural plant dyes and Greener Shades metal free acid dyes. I don’t use dyes derived from insects or from unsustainable sources. I don't use tin, chrome or copper mordents. I do my best to conserve water and use up all the dye in the dye bath. I also love using naturally occurring colors.

Equipment and Processing:
All of my equipment is manually operated. I use an all natural detergent to clean my fibers (Sals Suds).

I use recycled packaging whenever possible.
