FROM THE MD’S DESK

Our business is all about applying the most appropriate technology in to the ancient art of producing eri silk that was never attempted, because of lack of professionalism. Thanks to our textile background and exposure and also the commitment of our team. Eri silk which is the only naturally occurring Ahimsha or non-violent silk, that is produced only in the NE of India. We had ignored the potential of this silk, however, with the growing awareness about what an eco friendly textile means, we are confident that it is going to become one of the most wanted silk in the world. We have so far been able to pioneer it & impact 20000 families with a business turnover of Rs. 14 cr; with further investment of Rs. 16 cr, we are confident to bring it to the next level and impact more than 100000 families.

Handlooms

The age old tradition of hand weaving is very dear to us. We consider it as a true source of inspiration and art. The care, love, compassion and meditations involved in the development of hand woven fabrics is difficult to express in words and can be understood only upon feeling the fabric. The touch of it can fill one with that aspect of nature which is raw and organic. A sense of nature that is passed on to us from the warm abodes of the handloom, from the touch of the weaver’s artistic hands and the spirits of the silkworms itself. The tradition of Handloom weaving is integral to the socio-cultural fabric of India. Handloom products entail distinctive features by geographical distribution and traits of local craftsmanship. The north eastern region of India, and especially the state of Assam in particular is acknowledged as a prime location for this tradition that has been passed down from generation to generation.Read More
