Dupion Silk – Asom kriti

Dupion Silk

Dupion silk is also known as Douppioni or Dupioni. It is a crsip type of silk mostly woven into a plain fabric. It is produced by using fine thread in the warp and uneven thread reeled from two or more entangled cocoons in the weft. This as a result creates a tightly woven yardage with a highly lustrous surface.
