Ahimsa | əˈhɪmsɑ | noun. Respect for all living things and avoidance of violence to others; nonviolence. Origin: Sanskrit.
Every year, thousands upon thousands of pounds of silk are spun and sold all over the world. And, every year, billions of silkworms are killed in the process. Did you know that 3,000 silkworms die just to make a single pound of silk? Not only is silk-making cruel to the silkworms; it's unsustainable.
But silk can be produced ethically.
Peace silk is a semi-rare but increasingly popular alternative to commercially produced silk. Because of the unique processing method, no silkworms are harmed in the production of peace silk.
Two of Swahlee's passions are sustainability and ethicality. Peace silk is both. That’s why our Peace Silk Pillowcases are made from 100% undyed, organic, peace mulberry silk.
The Swahlee Peace Silk Pillowcase is …
- made from 100% organic mulberry silk

I love my pillowcase. It's so soft and luxurious. I love that it's made with kindness. I love that it's more breathable than conventional silk. It's so divine. Very happy with my purchase. Worth the money.
Feels soooo goood on my skin & I love that it’s cruelty free. So rare to find silk that is made in a way that doesn’t harm the caterpillars.
But such a nice change from my cotton pillow case. Stays cool and feels sooo fresh
I gave them as gifts so sadly have not tried them yet!!
This silk pillowcase is comfortable and kind to my hair and face. I do not care to go back to my old pillowcases. Lately, I wish to have silk pillowcases for guests in the guest bedroom.
The Ahimsa silk pillowcase transforms my sleep space into luxury! Great for skin and hair health.
