If you’ve been searching for the *perfect* gift to give to the Royal Couple, don’t bother— the Indian branch of PETA has got you beat.

The animal rights group sent traditional Indian wedding garbs (a silk sari and sherwani patterned jacket) to Prince William and Kate Middleton, and best of all is that it’s made from 100% artificial silk.

It’s a wise gift for the royal couple, who have already made strides toward making their wedding eco-friendly and green, and the group hopes that the gesture will raise aware of how cruel harvesting real silk can be.

“We hope Kate and William enjoy our cruelty-free gift as a symbol of compassion and love for each other and all creatures on their special day,” said Poorva Joshipura, Chief Functionary of PETA India.

To produce 100 grams of silk about 1,500 silkworms are killed, and India is the world’s biggest consumer and second-largest producer of the fabric after China, a PETA release explained.

In comparison, artificial silk involves no cruelty to animals and is made from polyester, rayon, and other man-made fibers.
