Handwoven from 100% natural Eri silk yarn.
Small broken diamond twill (a variation of diamond twill, also historically accurate).
It is not as shiny as other silk shawls in my offer, due to dyeing in high temperature.

Completely unique design.

Due to the silk is handwoven there can be some irregularity in weaving. The plant dyeing process may result in uneven colors, sometimes spots.
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 nonviolence silk, as the silkworms 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 archaeological finds is in small size like you see on this fabric. There are no finds of fabrics woven in a big diamond pattern.
