What does the term "peace silk" mean?

Peace silk is also known as ‘Ahimsa’ silk, from the Buddhist belief in non-violence. In the context of silk fibre production, this refers to taking an ethical approach to the treatment of silk worms in the gathering of silk strands.

What does the process of making peace silk look like?
