Ahimsa Silk Foulard Artischock
A limited edition Ahimsa silk foulard developed as part of the art-charity project faúl. The beautiful crepe de chine peace silk is organic and fair trade, and the striking artichoke design combines hues of green, melon, coral and sand.
The project faúl stands for a slowed-down, conscious lifestyle, for a fair and tolerante society and for appreciation of all living beings.
The drawings of the faúl collection are created by people with disabilities in care at the foundation RgZ, under supervision of Itzel Garcia. The foundation offers people with disabilities a pursuit without the pressure to perform.
We helped re-arrange the raw sketches and developed a limited edition series of products.
Half of the proceeds will go back to the foundation and support the in-house art program.
The term “Ahimsa” comes from Sanskrit and means ‘not to injure’ and ‘compassion’ and refers to a key virtue in Indian religions. In relation to our silk, this is a natural product where no harm was made to the silk worms. The cocoons are left until the silk worm naturally hatches from it’s home and start it’s new life.
We work with a small producer in rural North India who pay their workers fairly, practise organic silk worm farming and offer training opportunities for their employees.
