India, 7WEAVES Social, Tokora
‘Enajori’ collection’, celebrates reciprocity an invisible thread of unconditional love and care between the indigenous communities, their age-old traditional sustainable practices and the mother earth.
The entire collection is produced by the forest families of the Assamese Rabha community with 100% Eri Silk reared in small quantities, hand spun from degummed cocoons using the ancient technique of plant-based alkali. The yarn is then naturally dyed from the materials sourced from the forest using the traditional techniques. Each of our beautiful stoles will be packed in a hand spun, naturally dyed, hand-woven Eri Silk bag.
The Tokora is elegant in its simplicity of naturally dyed black from jaggery and iron and undyed eri silk with a beautiful texture created by plain weave, twill weave and an extra weft with varying density and thickness of yarn. Each of these stoles is lovingly hand spun and woven over 23 days, bringing to you a truly timeless heirloom piece.
