Looking for an eco-friendly dress that supports a good cause, and won’t break the bank? We recently discovered Supezas [2], an inspiring eco-fashion company that works with rural tribal women to make customized silk dresses [2] out of “peace-silk [3].” For the uninitiated, peace-silk (also sometimes called “Ahimsa silk [4]” 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 [5] to introduce their latest collection of personalized silk dresses; read more about them [6] and support their cause!
