Matka Silk Saree
The friendship between Indian women and sarees dates back to time immemorial. Sarees have always been the perfect companion to make our bright days even brighter - be it weddings, festivals, house warming ceremonies. And also to make our dull days lighter like a full day at office.
Sarees are no more a synonym of just tradition. Everything about saree means something. Fabric, colour, design, drape style etc gives each saree a unique ‘queen maker’ ability. With star designers, celebrities and government pitching for handloom promotion, there is no surprise in the kind of appeal hand looms receive in today’s trend.
Matka silk’s ‘trending now’ phase is a reason enough to dig deeper into its outstanding characteristics. Matka silk is a strong, natural,degummed variant of mulberry silk. This fabric appears rough like linen but also has sheen and richness of silk. It is soft, light weight, tailor friendly material, which makes it the best choice for embroidery. However, unlike linen it has higher abrasion and wrinkle resistance.
Silk being a protein based fabric, is a better insulator than cotton. Another surprising and desirable factor is it also keeps you cool in summer. Matka silk sarees have moisture absorbing capacity up to 20% of their own weight. As a result, they don’t look damp in light rains.Thus, making it the all weather saree with the charm of linen and smoothness of silk. Also, with their intrinsic antimicrobial properties, they are the best available baby friendly varieties in the market.
Matka silk sarees are available in different patterns and designs, making it inevitable to say no to these beautiful pieces.
