At Silk & Stone, we are dedicated to fostering a connection between the Eastern and Western worlds by curating an environment, products, and services that encapsulate the rich tapestry of global cultures. Our ethos extends to both personal and business practices, encompassing:
- Empowering individuals of all ages to realize their creative aspirations through hands-on activities, mentorship, classes, and comprehensive support.
- Facilitating cultural education by enlightening Western audiences about Eastern cultures and vice versa, promoting peace, open-mindedness, and a broader perspective on life.
- Pioneering environmental responsibility by embracing eco-friendly and sustainable practices. This involves utilizing 100% natural and botanical products, incorporating recyclable/reusable materials, advocating for recycling/reuse, minimizing waste, and demonstrating a profound commitment to the well-being of people, other living beings, resources, and the environment. Refer to our Sustainable Practices Policy for detailed insights.
- Ensuring the use of non-toxic, safe, and chemical-free products and ingredients. Our homemade Silk & Stone brand products are the result of extensive research and testing. They consist of 100% natural and botanical ingredients that are not only safe but also beneficial for the skin and hair.
- Upholding a non-discrimination policy that recognizes the equality and uniqueness of individuals irrespective of color, race, gender, nationality, age, beliefs, etc. We celebrate diversity and welcome enriching conversations about cultures, beliefs, customs, and more.
- Committing to cruelty-free practices by abstaining from animal testing. We believe in the inherent rights and purpose of every living being on the planet.
