Shirt Pahariya


pahariya (Assamese) - mountains

This shirt is naturally dyed, hand-spun and hand-woven by our team in Assam and sewn in a small women-led studio in Bangalore.
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 shirt has a relaxed yet tailored fit with the typical Nehru collar. The buttons are 100% shell. The model wears size M.

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.  It is natural that the color bleeds slightly after the first few washes. Please cold wash only with mild detergent and dry in the shade. Do not soak. For more information visit: Care
