Also know as Ahimsa, meaning "nonviolence," is a part of Buddhist philosophy or in the context of silk-fiber production, the ethical treatment of mulberry-eating silkworms. In lieu of boiling the silk cocoon to prematurely release strands of filament-like fiber, Ahimsa silk is extracted only after a metamorphosing worm has emerged from its cocoon, allowing it to complete an entire life cycle unharmed. The texture is luxurious, airy, and soft to the touch with a quality only inherent in a meticulous production process carried out by people with the knowledge of how to produce silk on nature's own terms.
Swami's Green Room Concept
Swami's celebrates a lifestyle lived in nature, therefore a respect for the environment is central to who we are.
For us creating a conscious and sustainable company is the only way forward. We look at the cultural and social impact we can make, working with craftsmen in Europe and supporting small initiatives in developing countries. This is an evolving process and we are constantly researching new and innovative methods to produce eco-friendly, non-generic products. We strive to keep our footprint light and harmonious with nature.
To demonstrate our determination we have developed a symbolic language to pinpoint how our products pay service to these principles - they form Swami's Green Room Concept.
