Eri Silk is categorised as Ahimsa or Peace Silk as it is one of the rare silk that is procured without killing the moth. It is found mostly in the north eastern state of Assam and its nearby regions in India.

Unlike other silks, Eri silk does not have very bright sheen and the silk is obtained from naturally raptured cocoons.

Due to the inherent nature of Eri yarns , the shawl has a dry and slightly rough texture . It will become soft over the years . Eri silk products will last a lifetime if properly taken care of . Store in cool and dry place. It is also easier to take care of than mulberry .

Eri Silk resembles cotton or wool . Traditionally Eri Silks were always used for winter shawls by the indigenous people of the region . Due to recent technological advances in yarn processing, the yarns can be made softer and therefore other textiles like saris are being made. But this shawl is of the the traditional variety and was made on traditional looms with hand spun eri yarns. The manufacturing process is manual and Eri Culture is still a predominantly village activity .

This Shawl is of the traditional variety , it is heavier than our usual Eri Silk items .
