Choose from three different backgrounds - Dupioni silk, Matka Natural, Primitive Muslin or no background.
Dupioni – Silk that comes from the fiber formed by two silk worms that spun their cocoons together in an interlocking manner. The yarn is uneven, irregular, and larger than regular filaments. It is not a tweed but is stitchable.
Matka – a heavy weight silk made from very thick yarns. The yarns are obtained from short ends of silk from Mulberry silkworms (Bombyx Mori) and spun by hand without removing the gum (sericin). As such, there are slubs and irregularities that give the fabric a unique character. It looks something like a tweed, but the fibers are all the same color.
