Eri silk is made by a silk worm called Samia Cynthia Riccini that feeds on the castor plant. The silkworm weaves an open ended cocoon, from which it flies away on maturity. Empty cocoons are used to boil and make this silk in a peaceful process with the least amount of chemicals, if any. It has a subtle matte sheen, so can be dressed up or down depending on the occasion. Eri silk is comfortable in all weather conditions. Mulberry silk is made by the Bombyx Mori silkworm that eats the mulberry plant. It is enclosed in the cocoon in its making process. Mulberry silk has a distinct shine. It is mostly worn in cooler conditions and for special occasions.

Eri Silk is 100% natural. It is certified pure silk by the Central Silk Board, India.
