Bell Sleeve Blouse
50% eri silk - french seams - pullover construction - dry clean only
Made from eri silk grown in Assam, India, this bell sleeve blouse is an elegant piece, stitched with french seams and a decorative tie at the neck. The fabric is made from a unique silk raised on castor plants unlike the common mulberry silk. This leaves the silk with a cushiony texture and a very subtle sheen. The silk is handspun and handwoven on a cotton warp, giving it a textured surface with natural variations. The cultivation of eri silk is deeply rooted in Assamese culture and its purchase promotes a cottage industry that is unique to the region.
