# Blouse piece attached with the saree About RAW SILK : It is considered to be the oldest and the finest fabrics across the world. According to Indian History, this shimmering fabric traces its roots of origin and existence way back to the Indus Valley Civilization. Raw silk is typically a short fiber silk recycled from spinning silk. In the production of mulberry silk only a certain middle section of the cocoon can be unreeled for spinning silk. The waste silk is the raw silk and it has a smooth feel with some bumps and a low luster. Interestingly, a single piece of continuous raw silk thread that is used to produce a cocoon is about 1 kilometer long. About JAMDANI: Jamdani is a time-consuming and labour-intensive form of weaving because of the richness of its motifs, which are created directly on the loom using the discontinuous weft technique. It is a vividly patterned, sheer cotton fabric, traditionally woven on a handloom by craftspeople and apprentices around West Bengal, Uttar Pradesh & Dhaka. Jamdani textiles combine intricacy of design with muted or vibrant colours, and the finished garments are highly breathable.
