FABRIC: Matka Silk is a rough handloom silk fabric made from the waste of Mulberry Silk without removing its gum (sericin) part. It is largely obtained from the states of Karnataka and Kashmir but its spinning is done in the Malda and Murshidabad districts in West Bengal. Matka comes from thick yarn spun from the silkworm which results in some irregularities in the texture of the fabric. Matka silk resembles the tweed fabric in texture. In spite of the irregularities of the Maka Silk texture, it is considered unique. The texture of Matka silk is rough; it vaguely resembles linen though it does have the sheen that silk is so famous for. Matka silk is a versatile fabric and easy to use.
CARE: Hand wash, Usage of a very light detergent, Air drying is apt as over-exposure to sunlight often causes the fabric to lose its color.
