why is it more sustainable?
Avani is a blanket made of 100% eri-silk.
Also known as peace silk, this silk is extracted with a technique that doesn’t kill the worms (as it happens with regular silk). Cultivated in rural villages, eri-silk is handspun, naturally dyed and handwoven in India.
Reviving hand-weaving traditions and creating fair work for skilled weavers, Annaloom production helps to improve the economic conditions of entire rural communities in Northeast India. The company also organizes guided Textile Tours of the region as a way to bring guests closer to the artisans, materials, crafts and local stories.
