India, 7 Weaves, Hokiyoti
‘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.
Hokiyoti , with its subtle tones created from undyed natural eri silk and naturally dyed grey and black from jaggery and iron, is paired with many different intricately woven textures. Each of these stoles is lovingly hand spun and woven with a varying density and thickness of yarn over 29 days, bringing to you a truly timeless heirloom piece
