Product story
Shipping & returns
One-of-a-kind hand spun, natural dyed, handwoven scarf. Warp yarn is 100% mulberry silk. Weft yarn is 100% eri hand spun silk. Eri silk is only cultivated in the area around Phrao and in parts of northern India. Unlike filament silks, eri has short staples and must be spun like cotton or wool resulting in a soft, fluffy wool-like yarn. Eri yarn produces subtle shades when dyed with botanic dyestuffs and interesting nubbly textures when woven. Because of variations in spinning, dyeing and weaving, no two scarves are exactly the same but each is beautiful. Goes with both casual and dressier attire. Suitable for wear in all seasons, even in summer as light outdoor wrap or for air-conditioned places.

Size: 44cm x 172cm plus fringe Weight: 200-215gms
Care Instructions: Hand wash in cool or lukewarm water; line dry away from direct sunlight.
