Ecodesign in Practice, Fashion4Biodiversity The use of chemicals in silkworm breeding poses a threat to numerous species of animals and plants. Cocccon has developed a natural product that achieves results similar to those of chemical fungicides and pesticides but which does not interrupt the metamorphosis of the silkworms. In this way, Cocccon has successfully manufactured GOTS-certified organic silk that has already been used in fashion collections. In addition, information about the silk making process is passed on with every piece of silk that is sold.
