Top Pohar II

€169.00

pohar (Assamese) - light

This top is part of our Pohar Collection, and is available in three different colors: burgundy stripes (naturally dyed with lac), yellow (naturally dyed with turmeric) and natural cream (undyed). This 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 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.

Please note: This product is made to order therefore it is ready to be shipped within 1-2 weeks. It 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.
