    A trailer of sorts . Shot on the Canon 5d mark II. 24- 70 mm f2.8, 50mm f1.8. natual light. haven't graded it as yet. Music Credits - Mogwai Ahimsa Silk "Ahimsa" means Non-violence. Ahimsa Silk is so called because the silk yarn is manufactured in a process where silkworms are not killed to obtain the yarn. For this reason, the product is also known as peace silk. Ahimsa silk is extracted after the silkworm has completed metamorphosis and emerged from the cocoon. There are many types of silkworms, but Bombyx mori is mainly used for commercial cultivation. The silkworms are placed in bamboo baskets and fed mulberry leaves. As they consume the leaves, the insects exude viscous fluids through head glands. These substances are fibroin (raw silk) and sericin (bonding gum). The substances harden upon contact with air, forming the basic silk filament, which is a combination of two fibers held together by the gum. The silkworm oozes out the fibroin continuously for about 1,000 yards, forming an oval nest or cocoon. But as the worm is still alive inside the cocoon, this poses a problem for devotees who respect all living things big and small. In the production of regular silk, the cocoons are immersed in boiling water to kill the worms and spool the silk yarn. With ahimsa silk, however, cocoons are left alone for seven to 10 days. Once the worms mature, they are allowed to pierce the cocoons and fly away as moths. Only then does the manufacture of peace silk begin. Each cocoon is checked individually to ensure that the moth has escaped before the silk thread is spun. Spinning takes around two months and weaving another month. Ahimsa silk is slightly less lustrous; it is even softer to the touch. In the production process of Ahimsa silk, there is no child labour or forced labour and there is no discrimination on the basis of sex. a little bit of a context for the Video. This video was used in a presentation with a live narration about the process. the first bit of the video shows the audience the traditional silk making process. 03:07 onwards.. " Peace Silk " shows the process that is used to obtain Ahimsa Silk. Basically the process is the same upto the point where the cocoons are obtained. and then the moths are allowed to emerge. which you can see at 03:34. the empty cocoons are then used to obtain the Ahimsa silk.

                    Please don't buy into the fantasy that there is some animal use that is "abuse" and some that is not. All animal use involves morally unjustifiable exploitation. All animal use involves the torture and killing of the vulnerable. All use is abuse. Just go vegan. It's easy; better for your health; better for the planet; and, most important, it's the morally right thing to do. -- Prof. Gary L. Francione
