Ahimsa Silk

dāram presents, for the first time, Ahimsa silk from Bhagalpur, Bihar in a collection of shawls, stoles, dupattas, and rugs.

Generally, in the process of silk weaving, the pupae in the cocoons are killed by boiling, steaming and fumigating. In Ahimsa non violent silk, the pupa is allowed to complete its life cycle and when it takes wing as moth, the yarn is woven from the silk filaments entangled round the empty cocoon.

PRAACHI is an organisation that has been working in Bhagalpur in the design, production and marketing of Ahimsa silk through the efforts of its founder Varsha Rani. Bhagalpur has traditionally been famous for its silk weaving.
