There is something very emotional about holding handspun and handloom textiles. You can not beat the feel and feeling of a true handmade product. 

 

Eeri silk is also called Ahimsa, or peace silk because the cocoons are harvested without killing the moth. The name "Eeri' is derived from the Assamese word "era", which means "castor", because the silkworm feeds on castor plants. Eri silk has a more woolly feeling than regular commercial silk (because it is spun, not reeled) and has thermal qualities.

No optical brighteners or sizing chemicals used. Pre-

 

The silk cocoons are brought to the women in the village who spin the silk using a spindle. A kilo of silk takes about two weeks to be spun. It is then brought to the family who does our weaving, and lovingly processed in these works of art. Because the weft is hand spun, the fabric takes dye differently than an entirely handspun scarf, this makes for very exciting effects.
