Eri Silk and Hand Crocheted Lace
Some new materials have arrived! We now have a beautiful Eri Silk 8-strand embroidery thread in stock, available in all 14 colours. This organic "peace" silk is grown in Jharkhand, Northern India and is spun without killing the silkworm. Village women raise the cocoons and process the silk in a Fair Trade income generation project.
It is lovely and smooth to work with and creates a subtly lustrous surface.
Another new arrival is an organic cotton hand crocheted lace made with the Godavari Delta Women's Lace Co-operative, a Fair Trade certified enterprise in Eastern India. There are five historic lace designs, each available in five colours: Madder Red, Mid Indigo, Ochre, Olive and Madder Rose. Co-ordinating beautifully with our Voile fabrics, each 3 m. lengths is enough to trim a simple top.
