Drawn by the urge to make an ethical fashion company, cocccon UG was founded in 2012 by Hagen,Germany based Fashion designer Prakash.He is a qualified designers from National institute of fashion technology, New Delhi.

After spending almost a decade in Indian and international fashion market, he decided to pay attention to his own native state Jharkhand, where economic and social development is far away from reality. Most of the people live in extreme poverty.

The biggest tyranny is, Jharkhand is the biggest place for silk worm cultivation,thier cocoons are world famous.But most of the people who are involved in cocoon cultivation,hardly have any idea about itīs worth.

They sell the entire cultivation to agents for a really less price.These agents sell it to other agents and it goes on from one agent to another..In the entire process everyone makes money except the poor tribal people who worked hard to cultivate it. Prakash,decided to stop the tradition,and to utilise the cultivation of cocoons to make silk themself in Jharkhand.

His main goal is to involve the local community in order to create an economic perspective.They started to work on the biological and non-cruel process to grow and cultivate silk worm without using any kind of pesticide,fungicide or genetic spray. Cocccon,Organic silks are GOTS certified.

Involvement of local women groups was vital,most of the piercing of cocoons,reeling,twisting is done by local women.First they get a small training and later directly employed.Getting themself financially indipendent makes women self confidenct in life and they can make sure a better life for themself and their family.

A lot of weavers from Jharkhand came back to their villages and started weaving for cocccon. With the philosophy of the 3 C's - CREATIVITY CAN CARE, COCCCON UG is commited to bring contemporary design to the ethical, organic and sustainable fashion scene.

COCCCON UG presented itīs first exclusive collection at Berlin Fashion Week-GreenSHOWROOM in July 2012 and received overwhelming support from customers around the world.
