Company´s philosophy

In times of globalization, we see a constant change in our society.  More and more, we think globally and are influenced by something that happens on the other side of the globe.

Thus, nowadays is imperative, a social awareness and global concern. We believe that we cannot help globally if we can’t take care of our own locally.

At Magma Textil Group we count on 19 committed employees that are our greatest asset. It’s our concern to both respect and give the best infrastructure for the daily needs.

This concern extents to our partners, on whom we rely on, so we do our best to promote fair trade.

We are also actively present on our surrounding community, getting involved with different solidarity causes.

At Magma Group we believe that our daily effort should be used to provide the best and fairest service to both our clients, employees as well as the community around us.

Tiny acts of kindness are a mark of our company’s philosophy.

The Fiber circuit

Based on this spiritual belif, Kusuma Rajaiah, a 60-year old government officer from India, found that it was possible to create silk without killing the silk worms and began weaving AHIMSA SILK in 1990. 

This is in contrast to conventional Silk, whereby cocoons are steamed, boiled, or dried in the sun, killing the silk larvae inside. 

According to PETA, 3,000 Silk worms are killed to produce 500g of silk fiber, where each cocoon has a usable length of about 600 to 900 metres.

Ahimsa Silk production is a humane alternative to this conventional silk production that can be from any type of Silk.

From an economic perspective, Ahimsa Silk is around double the price of regular Silk, since it required 10 extra days to allow the larvae to grow into moths and hatch.

Moreover, ahimsa silk cocoons yield around one-sixth of the fibre volume.

The change in raw material can make the silk industry more sustainable.

Choose your fibers wisely.

Conventional cotton vs organic cotton

As consumers’ awareness of sustainability increases, so does the popularity of the material.

There is conventional cotton and organic cotton and the difference is basically that:

– One is grown organically, meaning the cotton plants are not genetically modified, and no harmful pesticides or fertilizers are used in the process.

It’s estimated that each year the production of conventional cotton uses 16 percent of the world’s insecticides and around 6 percent of the world’s pesticides.

Still, less than one percent of cotton grown globally is organic and the reason for that is simple:

– Since the crops are genetically modified and the toxic chemicals mentioned above protect and nourish the plant, conventionally grown cotton is a more effective solution in terms of quantity.

It’s important to keep in mind that even if all the cotton worldwide was produced organically, it would still cause our planet some harm – unless we considerably slow down our consumption.

So, choose to buy certified organic cotton garments and practice a slower approach to fashion, by making fewer and more conscious purchases, taking care of your clothes and encouraging others to do the same.
