With this top there are irregularities in the dip dye. This is partly normal in this type of dye but for us, not exactly how we would like it for our first quality garments. The tops do not have sizing and care labels. The fabric is exactly the same as we use for our other garments and the indigo also color fast.
This top 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 has a structure which is rather similar to linen. No chemicals or pesticides have been used during the process. The top has a relaxed fit and is available in size S/M and in size M/L. The model wears size S/M.

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. Please iron. Do not soak.
