'Matka' means ‘rough handloom silk fabric’ in India! Four types of silk fabric form the basis for all other silk types; Mulberry Silk, Tasar Silk, Eri Silk and Muga Silk. These four types of natural silk may be power woven or hand woven, from which many textiles can then be made. There are at least eleven silk textile varieties produced from these four; Matka Silk is one of them!
It comes from thick yarn spun by the silk worms; the irregularities in the fabric are expected and are considered unique. A versatile fabric that is extremely easy to create with and sews with ease. Besides the use in suits, jackets and furnishings, it is perfect for doll’s clothes, scrapbooks, collages and journals. Because it's lightweight this makes it perfect for embroidery and textile art too.
