Natural Indigo dyed Eri Silk Handwoven Silk Stole / Shawl from our looms in Assam. 

This is a genuine handloom product from the looms of Assam, India.

It has mill spun Eri Silk in the warp and hand spun Eri silk in the weft .

The Eri Silk yarns have been dyed with natural Indigo dye. The indigo dye has been extracted from the local species of Indigo plant - The Assam indigo .

Eri Silk is the only commercial silk in which the moth is allowed to emerge from its cocoon naturally and hence known as Ahimsa silk and also is more environment friendly as it requires marginal amounts of water and chemicals in its processing cycle to produce these beautiful yarns.

The stole is made from Eri Silk Yarns in the traditional looms in Assam by women weavers .

Since Eri Silk is there, the stole does not have the typical sheen that is associated with Silks from India. Eri Silk is an indigenous Silk variety from India found in Assam and some other North Eastern States. Eri Silk is the original Assam Silk. The lack of sheen and slight coarseness/ dryness is typical of Eri Silks.

Eri Silk is easier to take care of than other more delicate silks like Mulberry Silks. If properly taken care of and stored in cool and dry place , It will last a lifetime. It looks like cotton but has the inherent properties of silks .

The production of Eri Silk yarns is still majorly an indigenous activity of the tribal people of the region and the dyeing / weaving activities are mostly village activities that employs a large no of women from the villages.

The stole is ideal for mild winter or for indoor settings only . Not meant for very heavy winter conditions.

Please note that there could be slight imperfections as these are handloom products.

There may be slight difference in colours of the actual product and that in the image due to lighting issues.
