These beautiful 12"x18" Green and Gold Ladder Panels are made from multi-colored Ceranchia cocoon silk. They feature a yellow-gold inset with bright blue, purple, and black accents that make for a ladder-like design on a forest green backdrop. The panels can be used as decorative tabletop accessories or hung on your wall for an organic, sophisticated, aesthetic. Purchase one for $40 or a set of two for just $65.
These non-woven panels are handmade in northeastern Madagascar using the cocoon silk of the Ceranchia silkworm. The wild-gathered cocoons are collected using a sustainable no-kill process that allows the silkworms to complete their natural life cycle. These panels use both the opaque "Ceranchia Dense" inner layer and the translucent "Ceranchia Open" outer layer of the Ceranchia cocoon.
The non-woven textile is made by stitching the cocoons together using a clear filament that disappears in the texture of the panel. The cocoons used here are dyed in vibrant colors using eco-friendly dye. The dyes used are color-fast.
These panels were sustainably sourced and made in Madagascar by CPALI, a conservation and poverty alleviation NGO in northeastern Madagascar that invests in local leadership, community ownership and linking these partners to global markets. 100% of the profits from Ta’na’na Silk are returned to Madagascar.
Care: Hand-wash only, warm or cold water. Hang on line to dry. Iron with steam iron on low-heat setting and place a pressing guard sheet over the silk to protect it while you iron.
