Bagh Print Eri Peace Silk Handwoven Scarf-2

$38 Incl of GST

Make this ahimsa silk scarf with beautiful botanical foliated pattern! Peace Eri silk is one of the  most sustainable natural fibers out there. Eri silk comes from Caterpillar of Samoa Ricini, which feeds on Castor plants found in certain parts of Asia. Eri cocoons are open mouthed and do not require the moth to be killed for the process of extraction of fiber. Hence it is also called Ahimsa or non violent silk, a preferable silk for vegans. It has some amazing properties, though it’s not as shiny as other silks and has a rough texture, it is one of the most durable and strong fibres. It has ‘isothermal’ properties so it feels cool in the summer and warm in the winter.  This scarf is petite in width( 13 inch) and is unisex. We had these printed in Bagh with natural colors by Arif Mohmd. Ji.
