Notes on silk
Tussah silk is naturally a sustainable textile that is biodegradable, antimicrobrial and made from the cocoon of the silk caterpillar after it emerges from the cocoon. It is also known as Vegan or vegetarian silk. Originally created in India as an alternative to traditional silk. We honor the history and Indian farmers who continuously sustain and maintain the creation of Tussah silk for us to benefit from today.
Village spun and woven on small looms, this fabric is never perfectly regular. After washing it takes on a nubby texture. This texture invigorates the wearer with quite a different sensation than the typical smooth silk.
Notes on dyes
Our gold robes are naturally dyed using organic and locally grown turmeric (when possible) and minerals. Turmeric has been used for millenia by communities in India for wellness purposes. It is naturally anti-inflammatory, anti-microbrial, helps aid in digestion and studied extensively for its pain reducing properties.
At Vida Botanicals, we believe that these benefits are also available when used as a dye.
