India, 7 Weaves, Dauk
‘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.
Named after the native bird from Loharghat Forest, ‘Dauk’ is a classically beautiful undyed natural Eri silk with grey and black colour naturally dyed from jaggery and iron.
This stole is lovingly hand spun and woven over 22 days, bringing to you a truly timeless heirloom piece.
