Matka silk is an Indian term for rough handloom silk fabric made from very thick yarns spun out of pierced cocoon in the weft and organzine in warp. The yarns of Matka silk are obtained from short ends of silk from Mulberry silkworms and spun by hand without removing the gum that is called sericin.
Mainly spun by hand, the filaments of the cocoons of this silk from Bihar were originally unwound and plied together on a mud pot, called Matka in the local language and that’s how it got its name. On all Matka silk fabrics, there are slubs and irregularities that give the fabric a unique character. Its texture resembling a tweed cloth, though the fabric of Matka sarees is thick, it is very light and airy. While the fibers are all the same color, qualities like easy to sew and scope for exhibiting creativity make Matka silks very popular in today’s times.
