Top Pohar I

€169.00

pohar (Assamese) - light

This top is part of our Pohar Collection, which are available in three different colors: lac, turmeric and cream. The top is hand-spun and hand-woven by our team in Assam and sewn by designer Irena in Leipzig. 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 is a size M.

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.
