Pashmina and eri silk scarf #147

by Indian Artisan

$160.00 / Sold Out

This very lovely and rare shawl from the Himalayan region of India ticks all the boxes for us at KASU:
> Pashmina - one of the finest fibres in the world

> Eri silk - no silk worms were harmed

> hand spun fibres - so fine!

> hand woven fabric - a subtle blend of two fibres dyed with the same colour complementing each other in a fine twill weave

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

> natural dye - Lac

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 170 x 345cm (not including fringe), this scarf is no ordinary thing: it goes beyond fashion to the realm of future heirloom. The marriage of silk and pashmina makes one of the softest and luxurious cloths you will ever feel.

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