Handwoven Silk fabric from our looms in Assam , India.

The fabric has hand spun Eri Silk in the warp and hand spun Muga Ghicha Silk in the weft . The colour of the fabric is the natural colours of the yarns . No dyes have been used .

Eri Silk and Muga Silk are indigenous to the North Eastern States of India , particularly Assam . Muga silk is the rarest of silk from India. Muga cocoons produces a beautiful golden lustrous yarns . But Ghicha yarns are produced from cocoon waste . Therefore , they do not possess the lustre typical to filament yarns . Also , the yarns are coarse , uneven with dry hand feel .

Eri Silk is a silk which is produced from  ruptured cocoons. Hence known as Ahimsa Silk . The silk produced is spun silk . Therefore , it does not have the typical sheen associated with silks like mulberry . It feels and looks like cotton but with very unique properties like being anti -fungal .

Eri silk natural colour ranges from off- white , cream to soft light brown colours. The light brown colours is produced from the Red Eri cocoons as red eri silk ..

The uneven dark lines visible in the fabric is due to the fact that the yarns present are hand spun and also because of Ghicha silk .

There may be slight inconsistencies or unevenness in the weave or fabric due to same reasons as above.

Overall , the hand feel is like cotton with subtle sheen due to the silks but stronger than cotton .

The fabric is ideal for items like Coats , Shift Dress , Skirts , Trousers , Jackets , Sherwanis etc. We suggest using a lining for any item made from the fabric for longer shelf life.

As a fabric , it can be washed . Use mild detergents or Shampoo . Hand wash separately . Do not wring . Shade Dry . Please note that it may shrink upon washing .

Since both Eri Silk and Muga Silk is present , it is a very strong fabric that will last for a long time with proper storage and care .

The price listed is indicative of 1 mtr of fabric only .

Please note that there may be slight difference in colours between the actual product and that in the image due to lighting issues and presence of silks .
