Soft, shiny, with lots of beautiful texture from the Sari Silk. 

Mined from the earth graphite is one of the most popular drawing materials all over the world. There are sources that can be mined in may places (a pencil lead is made from graphite and has nothing to do with the metal lead), including the Lake District in England. One of the sources of the best quality graphite is Siberia in Russia. Political prisoners were made to work in the mines. Soviet Writer and political prisoner Varlam Shalamov had a great deal of time to think about the material he was being forced to mine. “Graphite is carbon that has been subject to enormous pressure for millions of year. It might have become coal or diamonds. Instead it has become something far more precious, a pencil that can record all it has seen."

Colour Description- Black, White and Grey with multicoloured sari silk texture.

This range of fibres will use the same fibre composition, and the collection will rotate through different colours and collections over time. Some colours will be restocked, and others may be temporary to allow space for other colours. Even if a colour is restocked the nature of the sari silk means it's unlikely that the next batch will be the same "dye lot". If consistency is going to be vital for your project please bear this in mind.

All these fibres, with the exception of the recycled sari silk have been professionally dyed to Okeo-Tex 100 certification. Sari silk can sometimes be prone to colour bleeding, caution is advised on the first wash.
