Shillong:

In a bid to promote Eri silk, the NHDC (National Handloom Development Corporation) in collaboration with Auromira Entertainment has released a music video that showcases the intricate art of weaving of Eri silk.

The film has been shot in various locations around Meghalaya, capturing the state’s stunning natural beauty.

Eri silk of the state is known to be one of the most fabrics. Made from the cocoons of the Eri silkworm, it is also popularly known as `Ahimsa’ silk because it is derived without killing the larvae inside. Eri silk cocoons are open-ended, hence the moth emerges by itself. After the moths leave the cocoons, the empty cocoons are collected to harvest the silk fibre.

The intricate process of Eri silk weaving requires a high degree of skill and craftsmanship, and the traditional techniques used in this process has been preserved and handed down through generations.

The video is directed by Dev Meher and Rajkishore Mohapatra.

The release of this music video is a step forward towards promoting the traditional art of Eri silk weaving and preserving the cultural heritage of Meghalaya. It is now available on Youtube and is a must-watch for anyone interested in the rich silk culture and tradition of Meghalaya.
