This fabric is entirely spun and woven by hand in a Fair Trade Cambodian weaving community, which gives it a luxurious, exclusive and unique quality. In a single layer it’s a very light purple colour, and as you start layering it up it becomes an incredible, vibrant, violet purple. I chose this colour to fit in with the trends for next year – I’m obsessed with ensuring everything we sell works alongside Fashion and Interior trends.
As a handcrafted fabric, it is beautifully delicate with a gorgeous, featherweight lightness but a great structure – it’s lovely to work with. The fabric is made from natural, peace silk fibres with an almost zero carbon footprint – as all the spinning is done by hand and the weaving is done on looms. Not only is it a stunning fabric, it’s a fabric that incorporates animal rights and sustainability.
