Cruelty-Free Silk Runner - Plaid

$ 60.00

Hand-woven by skilled 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 moths into thread, then weave fabric on traditional bamboo looms. The runner features a plaid pattern on the borders, with a background of natural silk and silk dyed with harda, a local spice. A fringe border is then added as an accent. Silk worm rearers, yarn makers and hand loom weavers are part of the women's collective creating this product in east India. Low impact in every sense, including water usage, this runner may be down-to-earth, but for your table it’s pure indulgence! It can also be used for buffets or kitchen islands.
