Dress Mon II


mon (Assamese) - mind

This dress is part of our Mon-Collection and is available in three different colours: burgundy (dyed with lac), beige stripes (dyed with the leaves of the teak tree) and in natural cream color. The dress 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 dress has a relaxed fit and is available in sizes S - M - L - XL . The model wears size M. The dress comes with an eri silk belt made from our fabric scraps, embracing the idea of zero-waste.

Please note: This product is entirely made by hand. Therefore, irregularities in thickness of yarn are characteristic to the craft of handspinning.
