Dry Clean Recommended; Or Hand Wash & Hang Dry
Silk linen matka fabric is 100% silk, 54" wide and has an extremely soft woven texture available in many colors. The silk is created by warping together extracted fibers of silkworm cocoons found in the far east. Once extracted, the silk is spun together by hand without removing sericin from the fibers, which helps to keep the fabric thick while retaining its extremely soft texture. Because of the particular methodology that goes into creating this silk, it is very hard to find and manufacture.
This fabric also features naturally occurring slubs and ridges all throughout its surface. These slubs give the fabric a textured linen-like look but one touch of the fabric reveals a soft and cozy feel. Its medium weight and rustic look come together to create a one-of-a-kind gorgeous fabric.
The matka silk works wonderfully with various garment creations such as dresses, ball gowns, shirts and other timeless heirloom garments. Use this fabric to create masterpieces that are sure to exhibit a royal and unique look that will stand out at any event.

Great white matka
Ive been using matka silk for 20 + years now. FWD’s white matka is as good as any other and a really nice white. It is not a stark white, but definitely white not creamy, beige-y or natural. I’ll use it again for sure.
silk linen matka
Haven't used this fabric yet, still admiring it. It is lovely. I washed and dried it, and it came out of the drier very soft and flowy. It has substantial weight, so could be put to a variety of uses. I will use it for pants, skirts, and tops, and perhaps sleep with it !
Silk linen matka
I use this fabric for hand embroidery, cross stitch, wool appliqué. This fabric is absolutely beautiful and a dream to hand stitch on.
Great job shipping the correct fabric! A couple of previous mix-ups were promptly corrected. We appreciate the extra effort to get it right.
Can’t get enough
I can’t get enough of this silk. Please never stop producing it.
Needed to know the hand of each of the samples that I requested. All are great!
