Katan is a silk thread made by twisting a number of silk filaments made from silk yarn. These twisted threads are then used for weaving a pure Katan Silk Saree. Katan Silk Sarees are plain silk fabrics woven and then decorated with designs, woven patterns and printed motifs. Katan Silk is also used for making brocades known as Pothans which are closely woven and light in texture, with a major portion of the patterns on it, being either gold or silver zari. Pothans are characterized by the use of netting (jal) on them, made out of silver and Tilla (zari thread).

There are different varieties of silk in the country. Mulberry Silk, the conventional variety, bred domestically and the other three varieties of Muga Silk, Eri Silk and Endi Silk known as Vanya (forest) or Wild Silk. Katan Silk threads could be a mix of filaments from these silk varieties. The zari that is used, mostly comes from Surat in Gujarat. Indian handloom fabrics have a rich traditional fare from Pashmina Silk to the Kanjeevaram or Kanchipuram Saree, from Kota Doria of Rajasthan and the Patola Weaves of Gujarat to the Bengal Silks. And Katan Silk has been innovatively used in different varieties across the length and breadth of the country. Examples are Varanasi Katan Saree, Uppada Katan Saree, Kanchipuram Katan Saree, Jamdhani Katan Saree, but to name a few. These are ethnic silk varieties blended beautifully with Katan Silk.
