Karandi Fabric, A Bliss To Your Shopaholic Heart

-By Khushi Madan

 Saira Rizwan X Ittehad Winter Collection – Sarin - SR-3

Karandi a.k.a Karandi Lawn is rough raw silk but it feels like soft, nubby cotton. It is a standard winter fabric for dressy/casual suits to formal suits (with added embroidery work). It is on the pricier end, which makes it a valuable traditional material.

Despite Karandi fabric being considered as a costly fabric, women love to buy suits made of it as top designer brands have a wide assortment of these ethnic outfits and it is one such material that defines the ethnic fashion status quo of Pakistani and Indian women.

The cloth comprises of unique and exclusive microfiber which makes it incredibly soft and gives it good breath-ability. It is often coloured in pastel colours; however, over time, brighter colours too were incorporated into the fabric.

The Karandi Material doesn't shrink and it is sweat-resistant and breathable. Principally, Karandi suits use earthy colours and splendid mixtures of fall colours as well.


Styling the fabric

Taking into account that the fabric is on the costlier end and is ideally a textile worn at formal events, it is an unspoken standard that the material has to be styled sophisticaly.  You can take many inspirations on how to style this fabric from internet like Pinterest and Instagram.

 Karandi Lawn is pretty durable in comparison with typical Lawn as the texture is pretty thick. However, it's an expensive fabric so it's usually advised to go for a  more gentle and safer method of laundering, which is dry cleaning.
