This duppata (scarf) was hand-loomed in Meheshwar using silk filament with sericin with fine cotton stripes. The sericin can be degummed but must be done so lightly as the fabric is very fine. A degumming resist using itajime shibori is a recommended effective patterning method. Afterward the scarf can be dyed in natural or synthetic dyes to yield complex effect on original gummed areas against degummed areas -- in dark and light colors, slightly different hues, transparency and opacity, and crisp and soft.
