Hand spun / hand woven Eri silk
Handcrafted in India
Eri silk is an indigenous silk from the north eastern part of India. The worms feed on castor leaves and spin a cocoon of a very coarse, texturous quality of silk. The fabric when spun & woven feels almost like a thick cotton, but with the warmth of silk. Eri keeps getting softer with every wash and brings out its natural sheen. Our Eri is woven by a small wearer women group belonging to the Mising tribe in Assam on the island of Majuli.
