The
Silkworms

Who Are We

ERIS is India's leading provider of Assam silk. We have taken the traditional hand-spun Assam silk and sculpted it into finer, more durable yarn that is perfect for the fashion and home furnishings markets.

Eri’s most noteworthy aspect is that it does not involve the killing of silkworms. The fibre is extracted from open-mouthed cocoons where silkworms are allowed to grow into moths. Unlike other types of silk, the silkworms are not killed to acquire the fibre.

Through advancement in sericulture and silk-weaving and with a mind-set for finesse, we aim to cater to the market demad of rich and luxurious silk that is both; value driven and responsibily produced.

When we produce these silks, we are mindful of the spirit and values they are spun with:

  • They come from nature so we make sure that they are environmentally sustainable.
  • They come from people so we make sure that we support local communities
  • They come from history so we promote such heritage pieces so that they become the benchmark for silk.
  • They come from beauty so we employ craftsmanship and technical skill to showcase the finesse of the yarn.

The time for rare, sustainable silk is here!!

The State,
The Story, The Silk

Silk is the lore of the enchanting confluence of the Mongols, the Burmese, and even the Aryans on the Assamese culture. This diversity finds its way in the weaves of Assam, especially the three main types of wild silk.

Eri

This soft, wooly fabric is also known as 'Ahimsa Silk' or the fabric of peace. It does not involve killing silkworms and embodies the philosophy of the global trend of 'Slow Fashion', a movement towards organic, wild materials instead of artificially cultivated ones.

Muga

This is grandeur on a yarn. The natural gold sheen of this fabric makes it one of the most valuable silks in the world. it is believed Silkworms used for Muga are as old as the dinosaurs and Assam is one of the few places in the world where they are found.

Production of these silks not only supports local communities but is also eco-friendly.
