How To Make an Impact with your Silk Purchase

How To Make an Impact with your Silk Purchase

Silk is revered by royalty, traded from East to West along the Silk Road. It’s timeless, deserving of care, individual attention, and meticulous craftsmanship. Tara Sartoria believes it was never meant to be a mass-produced item. Beyond that, we also believe in ensuring that every silk purchase makes an impact. 

Not just socially – with 10% of all profits from each purchase going toward programs that help women to be economically self-sufficient and attend university – but in terms of sustainability too. 

Tara Sartoria is checking off all the boxes when it comes to making an impact with silk: here’s how you can make the most of your next silk purchase with us! 


Social impact of Tara Sartoria silk 

“We want opportunities, not charity!” This is the message we heard again and again from the women in disadvantaged communities in Vietnam and Indonesia. It’s why we believe in the power of education and economic opportunities to transform lives and communities. 


Making a social impact with Tara Sartoria silk

So, when choosing Tara Sartoria products, not only are you supporting a small, women-owned business and ancient silk traditions, you also help women and their families break the cycle of poverty. 

We work with nonprofit partners PPMK Empowering Women to Fight Poverty and Blue Dragon to provide economic opportunities and university scholarships for women. And, as a result, 10% of the profit from your purchase goes toward these programs, to help women to be economically self-sufficient and attend university. 

It means that every time you decide to invest in a silk delight – whether to enhance your sleep, your professional career, or just your everyday – you can rest assured that you’re making a social impact in the world. 

Giving you all the more reasons to wear your new fits with pride!


Sustainability with Tara Sartoria silk 

When it comes to making an impact, we understand the importance of honoring the environment and sustainable practices. It not only ensures the highest quality silk, but it works to uphold your values with every purchase, giving you guilt-free luxury. 

It has been important for us from day one to practice zero waste in our production. 

We save all cut offs and leftover silk fabric from the production of our silk pillowcases, kimonos, tops and pajamas. We then use these leftovers to make our silk masks and silk scrunchies. The result is that we are able to give or offer these products at incredible value for our customers, while honoring the earth, the silk, and the artisans: because no silk is wasted. 

We also embrace minimal, eco-friendly packaging, which you can learn more about here. 


Supporting ancient silk traditions 

Tara Sartoria supporting ancient silk traditions

Another way we’re working to make an impact is by purchasing silk directly from artisans in the oldest silk villages in Vietnam, where silk has been produced since the 9th century. 

This ensures that we source 27 Momme silk of the top quality, which is over 40% more silk than the 19 Momme silk often used for mass-produced silk garments. Our hand-loomed artisan silk is a precious material to us, and it shows in our respect for the artisans, the earth, and this beautiful material etched in history. 

It goes beyond ensuring you the highest quality, handmade product, but it also ensures that we’re keeping these traditions alive and relevant today. 

When you shop with Tara Sartoria, you can ensure that you’re not encouraging mass-production or taking advantage of disadvantaged communities. Instead, each piece is made with love, dedication, and passion, honoring ancient practices. 

If you want to make an impact with your next silk purchase, there’s nothing quite like the Tara Sartoria impact. With a focus on social and sustainable practices, we are able to honor ancient silk traditions to ensure a high-quality product that checks off all your boxes. 

We have a wide range of silk delights, with 10% of all profits going toward empowering women to be self-sufficient and attend university, Afterpay available on all orders, and free shipping across the US. Making every silk purchase a seamless, stylish, and impactful experience. 

Explore the full range today and align your wardrobe with your values. 


“I feel like royalty when I wear this! It's so soft and luxurious, made with care and attention to detail without being garish or over the top. Understated style for days I feel like pampering myself a little extra! … I've ordered other items from Tara Sartoria before and they seem to be a brand focused on quality and also ethical production, so I'm happy to support them - each item comes with a handwritten note explaining how the business model supports the women who craft their products. I'd certainly order again, for myself or as a gift!”
