Loacally Sourced Wool
We source our Wool from Fernhill Farm an 'holistic eco-farm on top of the Mendip Hills' - which is a short drive from our studio. The Wool colouring is native to the sheep and its superior fine fibres have full traceability to the farm & surrounding SW areas.
We source our Peace Silk from Seidentraum in Germany. Peace Silk, also known as Ahimsa Silk, is harvested only from empty cocoons, allowing the silkworm to naturally emerge from its cocoon unharmed, to complete its life cycle before reeling the silk fibres. This is the cruelty-free method of producing silk; conventional silk production simply boils cocoons before the silkmoth emerges.
'Ahimsa' sanskrit: non-violence.
At Studio Bodhi we believe in up-cycling, recycling and re-using materials and work this in to our design ideas by using off-cut selvedges from mills as exciting yarn concepts.
Certified as sustainable
