What We Do?
Cocoons to Yarns
Eri and Muga Silk are the pride of the North-East of India. Over 95% of Eri Silk and all of the worlds Muga silk is cultivated here. Fabric Plus has helped in fostering sericulture in this region and continues to do so with an aspiration to help making it fully self-sustainable.
We process cocoons with the help of our unique homegrown technology and expertise and develop yarns that meet international quality expectations. Our textile technologists and scientists probe into territories never explored before to discover unique methods and processes that ultimately translate to our products that stand a class apart.
Our range of fabric is vast and varied. From traditional handlooms to powerloom weaves using silk, cotton, bamboo, remi and pineapple yarns and their blends, to mention a few. We present an exclusive range that covers everything from buddhist monk shawls and other holy/sacred fabrics, traditional and contemporary fashion garments (such as saree, mekhela chadar, stoles, shawls, kurtis and nehru coats), home furnishing textiles and accessories.
Fabric Plus also associates itself with the practice of “Natural Dye” in their products.
The age old tradition of handweaving is very dear to us. We consider it as a true source of inspiration and art. The care, love, compassion and meditations involved in the development of handwoven fabrics is difficult to express in words and can be understood only upon feeling the fabric. The touch of it can fill one with that aspect of nature which is raw and organic. A sense of nature that is passed on to us from the warm abodes of the handloom, from the touch of the weavers artistic hands and the spirits of the silkworms itself.Read More
