Handwoven Eri Silk Long Sleeve Camp Shirt

One of the coolest fabrics we've ever come across, full stop. Permit us a minute - eri silk (or peace silk/vegan silk/Assam silk) is a fabric that's truly rare, extremely time-consuming to spin, and not often exported.  The silkworms are left to hatch - not killed like traditional silk - before the cocoons are boiled before spinning.  Also unlike traditional silk, the silk doesn't come off in one continuous filament, but must be picked apart by hand, resulting in a fabric that has varying sizes and thicknesses with a ton of natural slub. Harago has opted to leave it undyed to show off the natural character of the fabric.

 

And the garment? Holy heck.  The fabric is unlike any silk we've felt - lightweight but insulating, lofty but cooling, with a texture more akin to woven cashmere with no itch.  These are cut as a camp shirt that's easy to layer or wear on its own - 5-button closure (with real mother of pearl), double flap pockets and a straight hem with spread collar. Model is 5'8" and 150 lbs and wears a small for slightly oversized fit.
