Pillow Case Sapnaa


sapnaa (Assamese) - dream

This pillow case is hand-spun and hand-woven by our team in Assam. The yarn is dyed with jackfruit bark, Cutch and tea. 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. The pillow is stitched by an ethical clothing studio in South Delhi.

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. Do not soak.
