Posted By Elliot Chang On April 13, 2013 @ 1:45 pm In Architecture | No Comments
Looking for an eco-friendly dress that supports a good cause, and won’t break the bank? We recently discovered Supezas , an inspiring eco-fashion company that works with rural tribal women to make customized silk dresses  out of “peace-silk .” For the uninitiated, peace-silk (also sometimes called “Ahimsa silk ” or “Tasar silk”) is a cruelty-free silk fabric that’s made without killing silkworms. Supezas’ dresses also bring fair wages and sustainable development to impoverished communities and are helping to revive the dying art of hand-weaving. Supezas has just launched a Kickstarter campaign  to introduce their latest collection of personalized silk dresses; read more about them  and support their cause!
