DIMENSIONS in Meters:

  • Mill Spun * Hand Spun  → 5 (L) x 0.99 (W) (or) 8.5 (L) x 0.99 (W) (or) 12.5 (L) x 0.99 (W)

The Fabric has fibres popping out slightly which is due to the variations in the thickness of the yarn during spinning and twisting. However, you can expect the Mill Spun * Hand Spun fabric to be slightly smoother and softer in comparison to the other one.

Since the Fabric is handwoven, minor imperfections can always be expected, which is a trademark of the fabric being handwoven. However in both the cases, the fabric will get softer, durable and the dyes will get lighter over time. 

Our Fabric is suitable for apparels, stoles, shawls, curtains, table covers, sofa covers and can also be used for other various applications as per the need of the customer.

For Hand Spun*Hand Spun, you may expect a delay in the delivery time depending upon the pace of manufacturing as well as material availability.

About Eri Silk

Eri silk is a naturally occurring protein fibre secreted by the caterpillar Samia Ricini which feeds on the Eri or castor plants found abundantly in the North-Eastern region of India. After the adult moth leaves the cocoon, the empty Eri cocoons undergo further processing to be converted to Yarn either through the manual (hand-spun) or mechanized (mill spun) process and is further woven into fabric in a handloom. 

The woven fabric is dense, strong and durable and coarseness depends on the yarn. The fabric is breathable, odorless, isothermal, good UV Protection, anti-fungal/ anti-bacterial with the low carbon footprint. 

Our fabrics are naturally dyed with alum as mordant. No other chemicals/ pesticides/ synthetics are used during the entire process.

Our entire enterprise is social and community driven. 

Eri silk has been termed to be one of the most sustainable fabrics in the world.
