How is the Fabric created

To create brocade, a shuttle woven fabric and the base is coloured silk material. Gold and silver threads are used as additional weft yarns in addition to the silk yarns. This creates a fine 2nd layer to the fabric.

Tissue brocade is a very expensive fabric. This is used to make expensive sarees and fabrics.A few centuries ago, this kind of work  was used widely all over the saree. However, with the high price of gold, it is now used exclusively on the borders.
