Beautiful, light and soft, handwoven in diamond twill pattern, plant dyed, natural eri silk shawl is a lovely addition to your historical costume. The shawls have been 100% plant dyed in madder root to achieve beautiful shades of copper. They can be used to wrap around your neck, arms or as a head covering.
This luxurious handwoven natural silk fabric is based on a find from Birka’s grave no 944. The pattern on the fabric has been achieved in the weaving process so the same way as it was done on the original piece and it’s not printed. The size of the pattern is exactly the same as on the find and it’s rather small.
