Ahimsa, also known as “peace silk,” is created when the worm is allowed to live out its lifecycle, rather than killed to extract the silk inside its cocoon. Groovy. Then there’s hemp silk, which is made from silk blended with one of the most sustainable fabrics on the planet to create a fabric that looks and feels like luxurious dupioni silk.

Hemp is a naturally insect-resistant, anti-microbial crop that requires no herbicides, pesticides or chemical fertilizers to produce. If the 1.4 billion cotton t-shirts sold in American each year were replaced with hemp tees, the energy savings would equal 3.5 billion gigajoules and the water savings would equal 1.3 trillion gallons—enough water for half the U.S. population for an entire year.
