Headband - Barely Pink - Peace Silk

FAIR FASHIONISTA
CWSG

Rent it for:

$10.00

/month

Classic, light pink-colored Peace Silk headband. We use raw silk, which has a coarser texture than silk satin and a more discreet luster.

We do not use glue to fasten the fabric. Instead the fabric is sewed to fit the plastic headband. The final details are stitched by hand which takes longer time, but also results in an item that lasts longer and looks nicer.

We have sourced the plastic headbands from FDG, which is a French manufacturer know for high quality hair accessories. The headband is flexible and very comfortable to wear. I sometimes get a headache from headbands that are too tight, but this one I do not even notice that I am wearing.

Color: Pink

Outer material: 100% Peace Silk

Inner plastic headband: 100% ABS plastic

Made in Cambodia

 

 

Who made the headband?

The women from CWSG (Cambodia Women’s Support Group) in Phnom Penh make the headbands from Peace Silk imported from India. CWSG provides a source of income as well as social support to the women in the group.

What is Peace Silk?

Silk is such a beautiful and versatile material, but did you know that the traditional way to produce silk is to boil the cocoons with the silkworms inside?  That seemed unnecessary and wasteful to me, so I started looking for alternative ways of making silk, and I found out about Peace Silk/ahimsa silk.
