This patterned table runner is made from a unique, luxurious silk that is considered cruelty-free and compassionate as the silk worms survive the process, unlike in conventional silks where they are harmed or even killed. Cocoons are derived after a patient wait for silk worms to live out their life cycles, metamorphose into moths and vacate their cocoons. No pesticide, chemicals, or modern machines were used during any of the production process.
