Narrow yellow stripes followed by broader stripes of shot purple and blue create broad borders on this hand spun and hand woven eri silk table runner.
The silk worm has already left the cocoon before processing. In Little Flower Khadi & Village Industries Leprosy Rehabilitation Centre the empty cocoons are boiled to release the fine silk threads which are then hand spun, dyed and hand woven into these table runners.
Because the cocoon is empty the silk threads are broken and joined again during hand spinning creating slubs of texture unique to each piece.
