Ereena & Eri Silk
Our eri love story
From the moment we discovered Eri, we fell in love with it. And the more we worked with it, the more our conviction in this wonderful yarn grew.
From the foothills of the Himalayas, where Eri silk is considered sacred, we have taken Eri across the globe by innovating and reinventing.
Where it used to be ecru / natural - Eri is now available in a spectrum of colours dyed with azo free dyes or with natural dye extracts.
Where it used to be handwoven in either plain or jacquard looms, with traditional motifs, our innovations have resulted in Ikat, Jamdani, Kota and Kanjivaram handlooms along with knit and power looms developments, using new motifs that appeals to the modern times.
Taking Eri global
Sustainable Thinking Exhibition,
Salvatore Ferragamo Museum, Florence
Ereena woven fabric made with natural dyed yarns was selected as one of the exhibits shown from 2019-2021.
Made in Town

International Folk Art Market,
Showcased in ‘Innovation' category. Ereena was one of the 151 invitees selected from 640 applications from 53 countries.
'Best New Product Candidate' and 'Best Sustainable Product Candidate' - 3 years consecutively
Providing scalable green fabric solutions
With a team of textile technologists, we achieved over a 7-fold increase in eri yarn productivity, delivering 25 yards of fabric from one kilogram of yarn; and consistent quality.
Eri silk requires very little water - 333 times less water than cotton and 1.67 times less water than other silks!
Redefining comfort & utility
Eri Silk keeps you cool in summer & warm in winter.
"This silk consists of a bio polymer with excellent thermal properties due to the high crystallinity of the fibroid. The level of crystalline conformation of the protein is directly correlated with the thermal conductivity. This kind of material is a result of a long biological evolution showing incomparable properties"

Collaborated internal reference study by Trudel AG, Kussnacht, Switzerland
We have worked with different weights, techniques and weaves and developed Eri fabric for different uses. Stoles, shawls, blankets, furnishing, inner wear, outerwear, sleepwear - there is a quality of yarn / fabric for it.
