Eri silk and organic cotton shawl #155

by Indian Artisan

$120.00 / Sold Out

This very lovely and rare shawl from the Himalayan region of India ticks all the boxes for us at KASU:
> eri or non-violent silk - no silk worm was harmed in the making

> organic cotton - environmentally friendly

> hand spun fibres - so fine!

> hand woven fabric - delightfully variagated with a subtle diamond pattern and reverse colours on each side

> fair trade - the artisans are paid well for their labours

> natural dye - from lac, a sticky, resinous secretion of the tiny lac insect, Laccifer lacca, a species of scale insect. This insect is cultivated on Kusumbh and Tesu trees and has been used as a natural dye in South Asia and India since the beginning of recorded History.

> and beautiful

Measuring 224 x 72cm (not including fringe), this shawl is soft enough to wrap around the neck and generous enough to fling around the shoulders or over a sofa.

Only one in stock. Probably only one in the country. If you want it, better hurry!
