SilkCocons

Silk Jewellery from Colombia silk production was introduced in Colombia in the 1980s as a government initiative of the Colombian Coffee-growers association to improve income during the period outside the coffee bean harvest. They were assisted by experts from Korea and Japan for the basics of silkworm breeding. Since then, several co-operatives and womens associations have made it possible for many families to make a living by planting mulberry trees for caterpillars, breeding the caterpillars and processing the cocoons in silk-woven accessories and jewellery.

Mekhada works with a local company and thus supports the families of the Silkworm breeders in a fair Trade project.

The production process begins with the planting of mulberry trees, which are planted on the land of the families. The main dishes of the silkworms are the harvested leaves of the tree. It takes about 45 to 50 days for the caterpillars to weave their cocoons, which serve as the basis for the pretty pieces of jewelry. The silk is dyed in an environmentally friendly manner with tested, pollutant-free colours.
