Fabric: Pure Modal Silk
Modal silk is a type of fabric made from a blend of modal and silk fibers. Modal is a fiber made from beech tree pulp, while silk is a natural protein fiber produced by silk worms.
The combination of these fibers creates a soft, lightweight fabric with a subtle sheen and excellent drape. Modal silk is known for its luxurious feel and durability, as well as its ability to drape beautifully. It is also moisture-absorbent and breathable, making it a comfortable choice for warm weather.
Ajrakh is a traditional textile craft from the Kutch region of Gujarat in India, characterized by intricate block-printed designs in deep indigo and madder red colors. The term "Ajrakh" comes from the Arabic word "Azrak" which means blue.
Note: Slight color variation may occur due to photographic reasons. As a handcrafted product, any irregularities in the design or pattern should not be considered a defect, but rather make each handloom piece unique.
It is important to note that colors may bleed, so we recommend dry cleaning the product for the first few washes to prevent any color transfer.
