India, 7 Weaves, Halika
‘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.
Halika has the texture and warmth of eri silk made from undyed Natural Eri Silk with naturally dyed black, indigo and grey interwoven with highly textural, slubby crafted yarn made with patience and care. Each of these stoles is lovingly hand spun and woven with varying thickness of yarn over 34 days, bringing to you a truly timeless heirloom piece.
