Description

Our Organic silk kimono is made of Eri silk which is strong, dense and highly durable wild silk. The silk from this natural fibre is readily biodegradable after serving its full lifecycle and has low environmental impact. Besides being 100% hypoallergic and antibacterial, due to its thermal properties, eri silk is cool in summer and warm in winter. Thus the silk kimono is truly for all seasons.

The name ‘Eri’ is derived from the word ‘era’, which means ‘castor’, since the Eri silkworms feed on castor leaves  Our artisans  at Aeshaane, believe in slow silk farming, where the fibre gets extracted from empty cocoons only after the metamorphosis of the moth is complete and they leave their habitat, thereby completing the chain of circular farming. That is why Eri silk is also known as peace or vegan silk.

Our Eri silk cloth is a completely handmade artisan product, crafted by Kaushik, a third generation of rearers, who hails from the tribal ‘Borah’ community, nurturing his small dreams in a remote village called ‘Phalpur’ in Assam. Twenty women from a self-help group gather around post noon, to do the ‘Chunai’, or sorting of these empty cocoons. The methods used by the locals are environment friendly and sustainable. The indigenous women in the Assamese household invest their time in making these timeless pieces. Each piece has taken at least a week to produce, excluding the harvesting and printing by our artists. Each piece is ethical, produced in a small batch and truly a fabric with a soul!
