Tabby weave is the name given in India to plain woven silk fabrics. Kashmir has a well established global reputation for producing the best quality tabby silk in the world. It is still made on handlooms and hand dyed by artisans in the traditional way.
Tabby weave is considered to be a high quality silk fabric. It has a soft lustrous shine. It holds its shape better than most other fibres because the warp and weft threads are equal in size and the density of the silk is consequently very high. Tabby weave produces an unusually close woven, soft fabric, which is extremely durable and difficult to rip or to pull out of shape.
Kashmir has a long tradition of producing fine wedding saris from tabby silk. For this reason it is commonly known as “saree” silk. Its durability means that it is also extremely practical for everyday wear It is an ideal fabric for scarves because it responds well to frequent handling and daily wear.
Our Classic Range designs are differentiated from our Traditional Range by the weight of the silk used. “Momme”, (mm) is a measure of the weight of silk fabric. Using the scale 1 momme to 3.75 grams per square meter, our Traditional Range silk scarves typically use silk between 6 and 10 momme, our Classic Range between 8 and 25 momme, and our Heritage Range scarves above 25 momme.
