Our Gita Scarf is hand-woven from Eri silk, one of our favorite materials in the world: it is light, super smooth and has a very special shine to it. Compared to the conventional silk cultivation, for Eri silk the silkworm stays alive and the silkmoths can leave the cocoons before the silk cooking process begins. Another characteristic of Eri silk: it has properties that regulate body temperature in both cold and warm temperature – so your Indira Scarf will be the perfect companion not only for hot summer days but also for winter. Last but not least: Its exceptional symmetrical pattern is created through block printing. For this special printing technique the pattern is carved into wooden boards and is printed afterwards on the fabric in several working operations. This requires a lot of experience and skilled precision craftmanship and turns each scarf into a unique piece of art.
