Our Organic silk kimono is made of Eri silk which is strong, dense, and highly durable wild silk. The silk from this natural fibre is readily biodegradable after serving its entire lifecycle and has a low environmental impact. Besides being 100% hypoallergic and antibacterial, eri silk is cool in summer and warm in winter due to its thermal properties. This kimono is an all-season product.
The name ‘Eri’ is derived from the word ‘era’, which means ‘castor’, since the Eri silkworms feed on castor leaves Our artisans at Aeshaane, believe in slow silk farming, where the fibre gets extracted from empty cocoons only after the metamorphosis of the moth is complete and they leave their habitat, thereby completing the chain of circular farming. That is why Eri silk is also known as peace or vegan silk.
Our Eri silk is a completely handmade artisan product, crafted by Kaushik, a third generation of rearers, who hails from the tribal ‘Borah’ community, nurturing his small dreams in a remote village called ‘Phalpur’ in Assam. Twenty women from a self-help group gather around post noon, to do the ‘Chunai’, or sorting of these empty cocoons. The methods used by the locals are environment-friendly and sustainable. The indigenous women in the Assamese household invest their time in making these timeless pieces. Each piece has taken at least a week to produce, excluding the harvesting and printing by our artists. Each piece is ethical, produced in a small batch, and truly a fabric with a soul!
- With a little love and care, your organic silk kimono will last you for years. We celebrate re-use and swapping and encourage you to repair them whenever possible.
- Dry cleaning is the safest option
- Gentle steam iron on the reverse side or with a cloth over it
- Do not wrap it in plastic, as silk needs to breathe
