Katan Silk - Katan silk is a type of silk that is created by twisting together filaments to create a sturdier and more durable fabric. Due to the nature of its creation, the texture of this fabric is tightly woven and sheer. Creating katan silk requires a series of meticulous steps to be followed to ensure that the highest quality of the fabric can be achieved. This process of twisting was originally handled by artisans known as Naqqads. Katan silk is created by twisting together two threads only while other forms of silk may require different numbers of yarn. Once this is done, the weft and warp are dyed.
Chanderi Silk - Chanderi is characterized by its lightweight, sheer texture and fine luxurious feel. Chanderi fabric is produced by weaving in silk and golden Zari in the traditional silk yarn that results in the creation of the shimmering texture. The fabric borrowed its name from the small town Chanderi in Madhya Pradesh where traditional weavers practice the art of producing textured sarees in cotton and silk decorated with fine zari work. Chanderi town is popularly known as one of the best handloom clusters in India where Chanderi fabric was woven using handspun silk warps and wefts. Characteristic of Chanderi Creation of unique buttis or motifs and the transparent or sheer texture of Chanderi fabric are the two prime characteristics that distinguishes it from other handloom fabrics.
Motifs or Buttis - The buttis or motifs on Chanderi fabric are primarily hand woven on handloom, with the use of needles. Separate needles are used to create different motifs. Weavers coat these motifs with gold, silver as well as copper. The transparency of this fabric is because of the use of single Flature quality of yarn. When glue of a raw yarn is not separated from it, the non-degumming renders a shine and transparency to the finished fabric which produces a Flature yarn.
