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

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 Shawl is made from Handspun Eri Silk Yarns in the traditional looms in Assam by women weavers . The yarns have been natural dyed with natural dye extracts from plant based sources. Generally , hand spun wild silks have a slight dry texture and a very unique hand feel . These shawls have gone through the process of calendaring that makes them smooth and soft.

Red - Manjistha or Indian Maddar roots

Yellowish green - Onion

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.

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.

Eri Silk also has anti fungal properties , hence ideal for anyone who has skin allergies.
