Shamanic Nights ethical fashion supports...

The Ethical Silk Company, Dublin, Ireland.

http://theethicalsilkco.com

Natural Mulberry silk sourced from Ahimsa Silks.  Called ‘Peace Silk' by some,

the production process allows the silk worm to compete its natural process and emerge as a moth, before harvesting the silk.  (Non-ethical silk methods entail boiling the worms to prevent them creating holes and damaging the silk cocoon.)

10% of profits are divided between Focus Ireland (5%) and Jeevan Jothi AIDS Centre in Theni (5%) http://www.theethicalsilkco.com/eco-friendly-silk/



More links will be added.  Please email ameliajhoskins@gmail.com if you have a good recycled fashion link to a website or blog page.  No large companies, it must be your own work.
