THE TRUE PEACE SILK
A wild silk found predominantly in the foothills of the Himalayas, eri production is allied with a rich, ancient tradition of rearing, spinning and weaving.
Unlike other silks, this silk comes from open-ended cocoons, made by the semi-domesticated silk worm Samia Cynthia Ricini that allows the moth to fly away.
Only empty cocoons are harvested to make eri yarn. Hence, eri silk is often referred to as the ‘peace silk’. The harvested eri fibres are not continuous, as in mulberry and other natural silks, and need to be spun, not reeled.
WALK THE GREEN PATH
The name eri has its roots in the Assamese word 'Era', which is the native name of the castor oil plant.
Eri worms feed on the leaves of the drought-resistant castor plant, requiring only an inch of water per week. Overall, our eri consumes at least 20% less water compared to other silks.
Its low carbon footprint makes eri a great choice for discerning designers, brands and consumers seeking intrinsic value.
