Matka Parchment Silk


Matka silk is a lightweight, hand-loomed silk with a course, slubby texture. While being soft, lightweight and drapey, Matka silk is also strong and easy to sew making it a versatile fabric popular for dresses, sarees and suits.

The irregularities in the texture enhance the unique character of the hand-spun and hand loomed fabric.
