In the last decade, the demand for silk fabric has been growing at a rapid pace, as well as the demand from fashion houses and high-end luxury brands, and in 2016 the number of people ordering silk garments exceeded one billion.
The first generation of silk fabric, known as kaftan, was first produced in the late 1970s and 80s.
But the cost of production and the availability of natural silk were pushing many silk manufacturers to the brink of bankruptcy and to re-brand the fabric.
Since then, a number of new manufacturers have emerged and developed their own kaftans.
However, while the first silk fabric companies have been around for quite some time, the kaftas are still struggling with the price of the natural silk and the high costs of manufacturing.
While silk can be purchased at a relatively low cost compared to many other natural fabrics, it can also be very expensive.
For example, a kaftana kurta, which is an unbleached silk cloth, costs around 1,000 rupees (around £1.20) while the cheapest kaftanas, which are bleached with a special dye, cost around 1 million rupees.
For the past few years, kaftanos have been rebranding their fabric to compete with the rising cost of natural cotton, while increasing the amount of natural fabric they use to meet the demand of fashion houses.
According to a new survey by the Asian Silk Association (ASA), the demand has been so great that silk fabrics are now being used by fashion houses in a variety of styles and sizes.
“The demand for natural silk fabrics has really grown and the demand is growing every year,” said Mahesh Patel, a silk fabric designer based in Hyderabad.
“I have been working in this industry for the last five to six years and now we have seen a surge in demand for this fabric in our country.”
The demand from brands and fashion houses to use kaftanes has been increasing over the past five years, and now about 30% of the koftan market is made by the ASA.
According the ASA survey, the number is expected to reach around 80% by 2020.
But there are challenges with this trend, and there are many reasons why people are turning to kaftani.
First, natural silk is expensive, and natural silk has to be bleached for its durability.
The bleaching process also involves several layers of silk fibers that take several months to bleach, which can also affect the durability of the silk fabric.
The other challenge is that, like natural cotton fabrics, natural kaftane fabrics have to be washed before they are worn.
If a silk cloth is washed before wearing it, it will eventually become soft and may tear.
“We have to buy a fabric that is made with natural silk in mind,” said Ajay Singh, a Delhi-based designer who has worked in silk fabrics for the past three years.
“For example, we would have to have natural silk fabric on our wedding dresses.
The quality of natural kalfan is very good, but for silk, it has to undergo bleaching and washing before it is used.
The price is too high for our budget.”
In 2016, the average price of natural silks was around 2.5 million rupee ($3,000).
For the kalfans, it is about 2 million ru, or $3,700.
However, some kaftains are still making their kaftones, and these are more affordable.
“I don’t feel the cost has been increased in the last couple of years,” said Patel.
“The quality of the fabric is still very good and its durability is still good.
I would not go for the more expensive kaftania.”
But for all of the difficulties, there is a silver lining.
For people who don’t have the time or money to make their own silk fabrics, there are plenty of kaftinas available.
According an ASA report, kalfanos are often used by women who can’t afford to purchase natural silk or prefer to use other natural fabric, such as wool or cotton.
“People who cannot afford natural silk may still find themselves using kafta fabrics to buy the same kind of silk that is available in natural silk, and to purchase kaftano fabrics that have not been bleached,” said Singh.
“There are also people who can afford natural cotton and can still purchase kaflan fabrics.”
For now, kftan fabrics are available for a limited time, but it seems like a great option for those who are looking for a more affordable alternative.
