This blouse is made with 100% authentic eri silk. Eri Silk is a luxurious, rare silk originating from northeastern India. It is known as ahimsa silk, or peace silk, as the silk moth need not be harmed in the making of it.
Unlike other silks, eri is a short staple fiber and therefore must be spun, like wool. This allows for beautiful texture and varying weights. Eri silk is durable and strong, making it an ideal investment piece.
Soft to the touch and hypoallergenic, this all-natural fiber has thermo-regulating properties, making it warm in winter and cool in summer. This makes our silk short sleeve top with its subtle, elevated elegance a versatile statement piece to add to your capsule wardrobe.
Our Eri Silk Blouse in Soft Pink was hand-dyed using lac, a natural resin found on trees.
We’ve crafted this blouse with a minimalistic design to allow the gorgeous texture of the eri silk to shine. This silk blouse for women features pleat details on the cap sleeves and center back below the yoke.
