Eri Silk Fabric Jackfruit

This is our fabric we use for clothing, home textiles and also scarves. It is hand-spun and hand-woven by our team in Assam. The silk is called eri silk and cultivated by Assamese tribal communities South West of Guwahati. It is a wild silk and the moth leaves a hole in the cocoon as it has to be empty before it can be processed. Therefore, it is also called "non-violent" silk and has a structure which is rather similar to linen. The yarn of this fabric is dyed with local jackfruit tree bark and is a beautiful sunny, warm yellow.

Please note: This product is entirely made by hand. Therefore, irregularities in thickness of yarn are characteristic to the craft of handspinning. The fabric and the dye will change over time - the silk is becoming softer and the dyes lighter.  Please cold wash only with mild detergent and dry in the shade. Do not soak.
