Acala Stem – 100% Lotus Silk Sleep Mask


Made from excellent, non-toxic materials. Front and strap: Organic cotton, Lining: 100% pure lotus silk.
Acala Stem empowers single working mothers in Cambodia by providing an opportunity to work from home with their children, earn a good wage and have flexible working conditions. Their textile supplier manufactures from beginning to end, from yarn to finished product with no intermediaries or outside providers, to ensure the quality and ethical practices of all their products. Their lotus silk and lotus silk blends are made by highly skilled and highly valued artisans with generational experience.
Acala Stem’s lotus production process requires no water, gas, oil or electricity making it the most ecological fabric in the world. In addition, the brand only uses natural hemp strings to tie their products, 100% recycled paper for their tags, compostable mailer and DyStar dyes (Certified Oeko-Tex) for their fabrics. Their packaging paper is made from the remaining pieces of lotus stem, ensuring zero waste.
Since Acala Stem’s launch in April 2020, they have helped employ over 60 women in Cambodia to work from home with their children, many of whom are single mothers. In 2020 they rescued an excess of petals from cancelled hotel orders creating an award winning bath tea, adding value and reducing waste. Acala Stem has donated back over 350 of their own lotus face masks to The Salvation Army Australia and St Kilda Mums, giving back to the community. They sponsor local events by donating prizes and their office is part of a B-corp certified working space. The brand also educates the broader community about why buying ethical brands is so important.

The shape of this sleep mask is perfect. It fit my eyes and face shape just right. I love the social responsibility that Acala Stem represents. The work they do producing their products ethically and sustainably is a credit to them. I love what they stand for and love how much they value the contribution of single mothers, and that they support them to earn a living wage. This is a business that values the planet and the people living on it and I think that’s wonderful.
