These tops do not have sizing and care labels and our logo is stitched slightly different which does not affect the quality though.
The top is hand-spun and hand-woven by our team in Assam and sewn in a small studio in South Delhi. 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 is delicately made with an reconstructed darts resulting in a T shape. It also has a slit on both sides of the seam which makes it comfortable to take on and off. At the neck it has a beautiful slit. The model wears a size M.
