The cultivation and weaving of wild silk are rooted in the life and culture of the people of North East India, especially in the state of Assam in India. From the various types of silk of Assam, the rather unknown Eri silk is particularly fascinating, as it is processed without killing the silkworm. Commonly silk cocoons are boiled with the worm inside to maintain one continuous filament, which results in a smooth and shiny fabric. Interestingly the eri silkworm spins short segments of a filament and creates a cocoon that is open at one end – enabling the moth to emerge. This peace silk is, therefore, a very popular fibre among vegans and Buddhists.

Rabha & Assamese Community from Chaigoan, Boko & Bijoynagar area in Assam, does the Eri rearing & reeling of the thread. It is a traditional practice by the indigenous communities
The whole collection is weaved by a Community organistion in Bijoynagar & Chaigoan area in Assam
