Pillow Case Dahlia


Memories of a Ladakhi garden

This pillow case is hand-spun and hand-woven by our team in Assam. The pillow case is bundle dyed with flowers from our garden in the high altitude region Ladakh. We grow a variety of dye plants and wanted to print them onto pillows to make these memories last. The flowers and plants used are cosmos, white and yellow yarrow flowers and leaves, dahlias, marigold flowers and leaves, sulfur cosmos, and black hollyhocks. 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 has a structure which is rather similar to linen.

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.
