Skirt Uday

€199.00

uday (Assamese) - sunrise

This skirt 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 skirt has a relaxed fit and is wrapped knotted around the waist. One size fits all - meant to accommodate EU size 36-42. The model is a size 36.

Please note: This product is made to order, therefore it is ready to be shipped within a week. 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.
