Handwoven Eri Silk fabric from our looms in Assam , India.

The fabric has hand spun Eri Silk in the warp and hand spun Eri Silk in the weft . The colour of the fabric is the natural colours of the yarns . Eri Silk naturally comes in off white and soft brown colour as the moth produces off white and sometimes brick red cocoons . The brick red cocoons are rarer compared to the off white cocoons . The brick red produces soft brown coloured yarns and the resultant fabric is soft brown to light brown .

Eri Silk and Muga Silk are indigenous to the North Eastern States of India , particularly Assam .

Eri Silk is a silk which is produced from naturally 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 .

The uneven texture of the fabric is due to the fact that the yarns present are hand spun.

There may be slight inconsistencies in the weave or fabric due to same reasons as above. And in places , there will be yarns that are loose as these are very difficult to weave fabrics and the yarns breaks at places during weaving . The textures of these materials are very unique.

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 , Skirts , Jackets and good for Home Furnishing.

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 .

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 .
