Matka Silk Cushion Cover

Matka Silk Cushion Cover

45.00

This cushion cover is made from matka - a fabric comprised of the short threads left over from silk production. As a by-product of silk production, it represents a form of upcycling. Matka produces a beautifully soft fabric that is more matte than conventional silk, but shimmers subtly when placed in sunlight. 

Our matka products are made in North-East India by a cooperative that has been practising silk weaving for generations.
