Fibres:
GHICHA SILK – This tussar silk comes from a wild silkworm which has a varied diet, unlike the cultivated worm which only eats mulberry. Consequently, the tussar silk is richly textured and of a natural deep golden color that is derived from the ingestion of tannin rich oak leaves.

RAMINE – RAMINE – It is one of the strongest natural fibers, producing a silken thread, and known to be resistant to bacteria and mildew. It is also biodegradable.

LINEN – LINEN – Linen is organic, bio-degradable and recyclable. Linen is one of the few fabrics not to accumulate static electricity and it is also hypo allergenic.

Dyes:
TURMERIC – The turmeric plant belongs to the same family as ginger. It is a direct dye producing a golden yellow. However, turmeric is one of the more fugitive yellows and can fade rapidly in strong sunlight.
