The Conscience of Cocoon

Social Impact of Silk

Eris recognizes that the ecosystem in which silk is produced is fragile, important and a collective responsibility. Therefore, through its business, it intends to improve the society in which it operates.

  • Cocoon Rearing Families: 8,500
  • Handloom Weaver Families: 4,000
Impacted the following indirectly:
  • Cocoon Feed Providing Families: 10,000

Women Empowerment

Eris works in collaboration with Women on Wings, a Netherlands-based organization that focuses on rural women employment. In 2014, this collaboration increased the participation of females in the workforce to 85% (when the statistics for a government initiative for a similar purpose was 29%).

We believe that Assam silk, as precious as it is, must still serve the people that create it.
