Original Dhaka Muslin : Is it available for sale?
Dhaka Muslin is a unique handmade woven cotton. The myth is that it’s the woven fabric in the Air. It means Muslin is so light and transparent like Air. So even if you wear seven layers of Muslin might see your body Shape, let alone two-three layers of dress! The cotton woven is too light to fly in the Air.
The royal Dhaka Muslin is lost in the Nineteenth Century for many reasons. And no one knows how to make it except the artisans. So original Dacca Muslin is no longer available.
