Caring for our world and concern for defenseless tiny worms, these small hamlets ingeniously retrieve this awesome silk after allowing the worms to mature.

Designed and handloomed by master craftsmen, this resist dying intricate process woven stole, is one of a kind. Far too rare, far too special for everyone to own, just enough for everyone else to admire.

Admired and adorned by Buddhist Monks across Asia and Japan as well as vegan designers promoting peace fabrics, the stature of this silk is boundless. Designed and created in the ikkat* weaving process which dates back a 1000 years and more, what you may adorn will remain priceless.

* Ikat is one of the most ancient techniques of dyeing fabrics. The term ikat is derived from the Malay word mengikat, that is, to tie or bind. Amongst others in India, Odisha Ikat is a master craft and comes in three forms: 1. Single Ikat, a process in which either the threads of the warp or the weft are dyed. 2. Combined Ikkat, the warp and weft threads are used together. 3. Double Ikat, both warp and weft threads are tied together with great dexterity and creative brilliance, resulting in the emergence of a merged motif or pattern.
