When the silkworm has completed metamorphosis, it pierces through the cocoon with its mouth and flies away. The cocoon left behind is then used to make silk yarn. Contrary to commercially cultivated silk, this process does not involve killing of the larva and hence called Ahimsa silk (Non violent silk or Peace silk). 

ASAL’s non violent Silk does away with brutal practices in the production of silk without compromising on the quality of output - which actually improves because of fiber purity. Unlike the conventional method where pupae are killed before reeling yarn from the cocoons, in the production of non violent silk the adult moths are allowed to emerge alive from the cocoons and then the silk yarn is spun from the open-ended Tassar cocoons and from pierced tassar and muga cocoons that have been used in breeding cycles or those found in the jungles. 
It is essentially non-mulberry silk - from inherently non-reelable Tassar silk cocoons and non-violently processed tassar and muga cocoons. Matka silk keeps the body cool in summer and warm in winter and is available in a range of colors.

Mahatma Gandhi began promoting the spinning of khadi for rural self-employment in 1920s India.It is an Indian handspun and hand-woven cloth. The raw materials may be cotton, silk, or wool, which are spun into threads on a spinning wheel called a charkha. Khadi is a versatile fabric, cool in summers and warm in winters. Being a natural form of material, it crumples much faster than other preparations of cotton. In order to improve the look, khadi is often starched to have a stiffer shape. It is widely accepted in fashion circles these days. 
Khadi at Asal is available as natural dyed and unbleached yardage.
