Minna is available now on certified peace and organic silk fabrics!

We are so excited about working with two amazing silk suppliers. On Monday 4th of March, we  offer our customers an opportunity to buy our WHOLE range in certified organic silk. All our lace dresses can also be purchased in Ahimsa silk (cruelty free/peace silks) by replacing the conventional silk, which we use for the linings.  I am just  blown away of the quality of these fabrics; the colours, texture,  I could go on forever.

In short, buying organic means that the any product sold as ‘organic’ must comply with strict rules set at UK, European and international levels. Our organici silk is produced by following strict European guidelines for organic animal husbandry. The silk is harvested usign organic-dynamic methods in a mixed cultivation of mulberry and fruit trees. Artifical fertilizer, antibiotics and growth hormone are strictly forbidden. 

Ahimsa silk is produced without killing silkworms. AHIMSA is a Sanskrit term for the principal of non-violence, which reflects the attitude of mankind towards animals
and nature in many eastern religions. Silk is often referred to as non-violent silk or peace silk.  Peace silk allows the silkworm to emerge from their cocoons to live out their full life cycle. The silk is degummed and spun like other fiber, instead of being reeled. The resulting yarn is soft, fluffy, and light like a cloud. This fabric is suitable for vegans.

Both companies are certified either by GOTS or the Soil Association. To hear more about the fabrics, please drop Minna an email on minna@minna.co.uk
