What is Lotus Silk?
Lotus silk is a luxury hand-made fabric once only worn by royalty and offered to the highest ranking monks across Indochina. The microfibers are extracted completely by hand from inside a lotus flower stem, and woven into a soft luxurious fabric.
Artisans in Cambodia, India & Myanmar have been weaving fabric from the microfibres within a lotus stem for centuries. The production process requires no water, gas, oil or electricity to produce, making it the most ecological fabric in the world. Even the stems are lifted from underwater on a floating raft.
For centuries eastern philosophers have sworn by the Lotus’s remedial healing abilities, which they believe can aid the treatment of anxiety, headaches, heart ailments, asthma and lung issues. The unique medicinal, nutritional and cosmetic properties of the lotus are what sets our products apart.
