This beautiful lounger style jacket (the same as our Balkal Silk Lounger) is crafted from hand woven Eri Ahimsa silk. The cloth is soft and has a beautiful drape, and a rich cream colour. The facing is Khadi cotton in white with red Ikat-dyed checks.
The fabric gives a beautiful drape to the modern box shape and oversized sleeves. We love it with the sleeves folded up to hit just below the elbow.
Our loungers have a relaxed fit, with an open front and drop-sleeves. They have no collar, and feature facing in the sleeves, front and back yoke to provide structure and added detailing. This piece has patch pockets on the front.
Ahimsa silk, also known as peace silk or non-violent silk, refers to any type of silk that is produced without harming or killing the silk worms. This is in contrast to conventional silk, where 3,000 caterpillars are killed to create one pound of silk. Ahimsa silk is not only environmentally friendly, vegan and ethical, it’s also extremely luxurious in terms of the drape and texture of the fabric.
Eri silk is produced by caterpillars which feed on castor plants in northeast India.
