The Silk Story
Indian silk has long been part of the life and culture of Indians.
Traditional weaving methods are still employed in silk centres all over the country and weavers continue to produce fine silks for many uses but particularly the elegant traditional Indian Sari.
In India the sari is almost synonymous with the word silk. It has been the traditional garment of Indian woman since time immemorial.
Eastern Silk’s beautiful products are born in the heartland of fine silk, Varanasi, in Northern India. In Varanasi and its surrounding villages, traditional hand weaving methods are still practiced to produce the elegant fabrics, delicate embroidery and exotic beading so evident in our range.
Many of the methods and traditional patterns have been passed down through countless generations of craftsmen.
We take great care in selecting our fabrics, homewares and accessories to bring you an exotic touch of India. Please enjoy.
