This unique silk is created from a blend of cruelty free (Eri) and mulberry silk. Eri silk is considered compassionate, as silk worms survive the process, unlike in conventional silks. Cocoons are derived after a patient wait for silk worms to live out their life cycles, metamorphose into moths and vacate their cocoons. Mulberry silkworms on the other hand are domesticated and usually reared indoors. Silk threads are handspun, then handwoven into these gorgeous pieces!
Handmade by artisans working for an artisan group that provides employment and life skills training to individuals with physical disabilities as an avenue for financial independence and social acceptance in North India.
