Eri Silk is also known as Peace Silk or Ahimsa because the silk worms are allowed to complete their life cycle and leave their cocoons as a moth.
This silk is preferred by Buddhists and Vegans. Unlike Mulberry and Tussah silk where the silk worm spins a continuos filament the Eri cocoons are made up of short filaments, which adds a soft grain to the fabric. This is an amazing fabric, soft, subtle shine with a very soft grainy texture, it looks and feels amazing, you will be absolutely in love with this the minute you try it on.
Botanically dyed with Cinera Eucalyptus leaves
