New Delhi, Feb 29 (IANS) City-based designers Asha and Gautam Gupta have introduced an exclusive range of limited edition Eri silk saris under their Indian Label Vinayak Couture.
Eri silk is extracted from the worm Samia-Cynthia Ricini, which is found in north east of India and is often called ‘Ahimsa silk’ as the process doesn’t involve the killing of the insect, read a statement.
Gupta has created the Eri silk fabric by organically and naturally processing the fabric under the sunlight to soften its texture.
“It is another endeavour to penetrate into more clusters apart from Varanasi, Uppada and Kutch. So, working with north east weavers was a great experience and we will come up with more new techniques with them for our Couture label,” Gupta said.
The weaving in polka dots pattern and Ikat technique resonates with fresh and summer-friendly colour palette like blue, yellow and pink.
