Measurements

Length : 190 cm
Width : 70 cm
Weight : ca. 1o0 gm


Structure

Reed : 44
Pick : 44

Reed is the number of threads per inch across the width of  the scarf and Pick is the number of threads per inch across the length of the scarf. Higher number of reed and pick means denser fabric.

We use a relatively thicker yarn (2 ply, 140nm) but still a higher thread count, which makes our scarf much sturdier and long lasting. A loose twist while spinning the yarn and master weaving ensure that the scarf is soft and luxurious.


Care Instructions

This is a fine textile, which needs a little care to preserve. Though you can wash this scarf in cold water with hand using a mild detergent, it would be better if you dry cleaned it. If you wash it, do not squeeze the scarf too tightly: best is to roll the wet scarf in a cotton towel and lay out to air dry. This is a durable fabric that is likely to be with you for a very long time. Enjoy!

We use Eri silk, which is cooler in summer and warmer in winter, to make our scarves.

Eri is obtained from Samia caterpillar but only after its transformation (and escape) into a moth.

The soft cocoon shell, the caterpillar leaves behind, has naturally a hole in it; thus yarn cannot be reeled off as in mulberry silk’s case. Instead, the staple is spun to make yarn, this makes Eri soft and fluffy.

The dyes used to colour our yarn have all been derived from various plants, vegetables and fruits.

The dyestuff are GOTS certified and are non-toxic and harmless for your skin. Using these organic dyestuff, we dye yarn in small batches in our own facility.

Our scarves are handcrafted on traditional wooden looms.

We see reflections of the rich history of looms and weaving in our looms. Our looms are made of wood from sal tree: a native of the Indian subcontinent with religious significance to Hindus and Buddhists. The channel in the looms -- that allows the flying shuttle to traverse the width of the loom -- is made from teak for smoothness.

Each step of the process is touched by the adept hands of our master weavers who work for days to craft the scarves.

Readying the loom for weaving is like arranging a band for a musical session. The repetitive actions on wooden tools and parts of a loom make the weaving process rhythmic and add musical components to it.
