A silky fabric used in traditional Indian wedding dresses can be woven into a silk patch-work fabric and then used to make a silk blanket.
In the photo above, the silk fabric, called Zari silk, is sewn onto a woven silk blanket, which is then hung from a wire, which creates the illusion that the fabric is silk-covered.
It can also be made from wool and cotton, as well as linen and wool.
Silk patches are also used to cover a bride’s body.
“The wool and the cotton are sewn in the same thread, the fabric and the blanket are sewed in different threads,” says Kala Patel, founder and CEO of Zari.

For more details, see our tutorial on how to make silk patches in this story.
You can see the silk blanket in this video and the silk wool fabric in this one.

They wanted to start their own company, so they went to Mumbai to work for a fabric company called Zabi.

Ravi and Kala are passionate about using the fabrics that they made and using them in the way that they have.
“We have the technology to do it, but we’re just not doing it yet. “
The way we make these fabrics is quite different from what we would have done in the past,” Ravi says.
“We have the technology to do it, but we’re just not doing it yet.

As we started our company, we thought that we would make garments that are a little bit more sustainable.”
