Size :
60 cm wide

Hand woven from 100% natural Eri silk yarn.
Small broken diamond twill (a variation of diamond twill, also historically accurate).
Made of two yarn colours (gray with blueish undertone and natural, undyed colour of silk), together it creates an effect that reminds ice. It shines beautifully and looks differently depends of light and its position. Therefore it is very difficult to photograph and to show the colour.

Completely unique design.

Due to the silk is handwoven there can be some irregularity in weaving.
The fabric is hand dyed, so to keep the colours as they are, please wash in cold water with no detergent or dry wash.

Eri silk is called non violence silk, as the silk worms are left free (they are not boiled in water) during the production of silk.

Fabrics made in diamond twill have been found in rich Vendel, Migration Period and Viking graves. They were luxurious fabrics, probably imported. The diamond pattern in these archeaological finds is in small size, like you see on this fabric. There are no finds of fabrics wooven in big diamond pattern.
