segun (Assamese) - teak

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. The yarn is naturally dyed with young teak leaves harvested in April and henna leaves. The fabric is thick and has a rustic feel to it. Perfect as a bed spread.

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.
