Author(s): Sheetal Arora
The pride of India, muga silk is known for its natural shimmering golden colour. The most expensive of silks, muga is intrinsically woven into the cultural traditions of the people of Assam. In recent times, fashion designers have found exciting prospects in using muga silk for developing new products and designs. This can be further enhanced by printing the muga silk fabric with novel and striking shades using synthetic dyes. The printed muga silk fabric will increase the scope of muga silk in local market as well as in global market for apparel, household and decorative handicraft items. The present research work was undertaken to explore an innovative idea of printing muga silk with reactive and acid dyes. The research work included the printing of muga silk fabric with reactive and acid dye and to see the effect of printing on the physical properties of the fabric.
