A REAL TREAT TO THE EYE AND THE SENSES. Super soft and feels good on so many levels...

All our products are artisan inspired but this one is all handcrafted by artisans with a special story. 

Hand-woven by skilled indigenous women artisans, this unique luxurious silk is considered compassionate, as silk worms survive the process, unlike in conventional silks. Artisans hand spin cocoons left behind by moth into thread, then weave fabric on traditional bamboo looms. 

This throw features un-dyed yarn (the natural color of the cocoon) and yarn dyed with health-promoting turmeric in the border. 

Did you know? Legend has it that the Chinese discoverd silk by a cocoon accidently dropping into the Emperor's tea and unraveling in the hot water??
