Meghalaya is well known for Eri Silk or Ryndia. The natural color of this yarn makes a classic handwoven fabric. The fiber of this silk has cotton-like behavior. Eri has a rougher texture and is heavier than other silks but it can be spun into finer and shinier material.
The more it is worn, the softer it gets, and it is a great textile to weave with. This is the popular Eri silk yarn makers are talking about. Its texture, especially when woven with handspun yarn, is profoundly beautiful – always changing with the charismatic touch of imperfection.
