ORGANIC & SUSTAINABLE
At Roumage we believe that organic produce shouldn’t stop at the food you buy and choosing organic and more sustainable materials in all aspects of your life is something we try to encourage those around us to adopt. Not only does it benefit us as humans but also this shift in the way we live will have dramatic benefits to our environment. We source only the best GOTS certified organic silk from Italy, which has won the 2017 Green Carpet Award for Sustainability. The organic silk production process is one of the most eco friendly processes around. Silk worms feed off the mulberry leaf. Mulberry tree plantations help with CO2 production offering a large capacity for carbon mitigation. Essentially, the trees store Carbon Dioxide (one of several greenhouse gasses) instead of releasing it into the atmosphere. Commercial, non-organic silk goes through a cleaning process in which the cocoons of the silk worms are washed with bleach in order to ‘clean’ it of it’s natural protein content. This leaves you sleeping for 8 hours amongst toxic chemicals instead of the natural protein of organic silk fibre.
