Cruelty-free, handwoven Eri Silk
With the strength of cotton, the warmth of wool and the lustre of silk - Eri silk from Assam makes for keepsakes like no other. Also called "peace silk" - the ancient technique it uses to extract silk yarn makes sure that the silkworm doesn't die in the process. The fabric is also known to get softer with use.
The stole is 25 inches wide and 1.93 meters long.
