QUEEN OF FIBERS
Though we’ve worked with silk cotton in the past, 100% crepe silk is a notable first for us. With a material as opulent as crepe silk, we’re introducing a more luxurious and premium line. The beauty of silk lies in its versatility and paradoxical nature: the tensile strength is comparable to steel, yet no other material drapes more luxuriously and flatteringly, and it is adaptable to the changing weather.
Aligned with our intention to create products that are long lasting, silk is an all-climate fabric that adapts to the rise and fall of temperatures.
Very few people blockprint on silk as it holds many challenges and it took us a long time to convince Khushiram, our fifth generation blockprinter, to print on silk. It isn’t commonly done as blockprinting on silk can easily cause the design to warp due to the lightweight nature of the material.
