Throw Bia


Bia (Assamese) - wedding

This throw is hand-spun, hand-woven and naturally dyed by our team in Assam. The silk is called eri silk and cultivated by Assamese tribal communities South West of Guwahati. It is also called peace silk. The moth leaves a hole in the cocoon as it has to be empty before it can be processed. Therefore it has a structure which is rather similar to linen. This throw is created by our weaver Bina and the design was initially used for the wedding outfit of founder Catherine. We loved it so much so we created a throw as well.
