Great white matka silk
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.
Never an issue with FWD linen
I’ve used this linen for my business and personal use and I love the weight and drape.
