    Silk is a popular fabric yarn in India where mulberry and other forms of silk are cultivated. Traditionally silk handloom sarees and salwar kameez have always been used for special occasions like weddings, traditional festivals and as bridal attire. The South Indian silks are made of very good quality silk. Nowadays parties, important social events, corporate functions are all occasions for the use of silk handlooms. South Handloom Silks are famous for their soft feel, rich thread work, attractive motifs and patterns, contrast borders in a wide range of vibrant colours. Assam Silks are made from Muga (golden silk), Mulberry Silk or Eri Silk and have zari work or multi-coloured threads with patterns like fruits, flowers, diamonds, animals, birds as motifs. Chanderi Silks of Madhya Pradesh (MP), are known for their sheer quality, fine texture and marvellous work in art and design. Chanderi Silks have zari brocades with embroidery of different patterns as Zari, Zardosi, Ari, Gota, Chikan, to name a few. Tussar Silk, also known as ‘Kosa’ Silk is ‘wild silk’, from silkworms breeding on trees in the forests of Jharkhand. The raw silk has a deep golden colour and is of good texture. Hand-woven Tussar Silk fabrics are well known for their texture, zari borders and motifs and the hand crafted designs that enrich them. Mercerization is a treatment by which yarn fibres gain strength and lustre. Mercerizing causes the fibre to have a softer feel.

    Nowadays silk is also mercerized like cotton, improving its fibre qualities in terms of overall strength and lustre. Bangalore, Mysore in Karnataka, India, are famous for their individual brands of silk. The Silk Crepe fabric is thin, light and transparent. The distinguishing feature of the Silk Crepe is its sparkle and lustre, apart from its soft feel, gauze-like appearance and texture. Cotton silk sarees are a mix of cotton and silk in different proportions in the blended fabric. Cotton and silk are both natural fibres with good qualities of strength, durability, soft feel, light weight, airy and very comfortable. Sometimes people are confused about cotton silk and sico fabrics since both are made up silk and cotton. The difference lies in the lustre and feel of Sico sarees which have shine and are softer compared to cotton silk sarees due to the mercerized cotton and mostly pure silk used in Sico. Kanchipuram or Kanjeevaram Sarees have a special place in the fabric world. The Kanchipuram Silks are made of pure silk, with motifs having zari of silk threads dipped in liquid gold and silver. The appeal of the Kanjeevaram Silks lie in the elegant broad borders with colours and designs different from that of the body. Typical motifs are sun, moon, peacock, swan, lion and mango. Themes like jasmine flowers scattered between boundaries, parallel lines running across or temple structures are also popular.

    Meghalaya in the North East of India is well known place for its handloom woven fabrics. Eri or endi silk and mulberry silk are the raw materials used in silk handloom weaving. Meghalaya silks are known for their durability and texture. Meghalaya silk sarees offer canvas for beautiful eye-catching patterns of zari in zardozi, chikan, ari and gota. Fashion prints of batik, block, bandhini lehriya enhance the beauty of Meghalaya fabric. Adornments with kundans, beads, and pearls add to the allure of the Meghalaya Silk fabric. Bengal is famous for its handloom silk saris. It is fine, smooth, of good texture, airy and light on the body. Popular for its comfort the Bengal Silks are preferred in colours of red, green, yellow, blue and their shades. Silk brocade designs suited to the base colour, are decorated with attractive motifs. Jamdhani hand weaving is a necessary accompaniment for Bengal fabrics where cotton and gold thread weaving create motifs of geometric patterns and floral designs in colourful hues.
