Linen fabrics are crisp, strong and absorbent. Woven in a variety of weights, they tend to be high quality and are generally more expensive than cottons. As they are cool to wear, linens are often used to make summer clothes. Linen tends to crease easily so it’s sometimes mixed with other fibers to reduce this effect.

Linen is used for a variety of purposes. The use of linen fabric has gone beyond the fashion industry alone. It is now used in mix with other materials and is used for daily wear. Linen is not very expensive and is definitely the king of fabrics presently. Clothes made of linen can be easily accessorised. Linen fabric is available in a variety of designs, textures and prints making the material more wanted by everyone around.
Egyptian linen is used by most of the fashion designers. Scottish and Irish linen are very popular because of the unique white colour that is ideal for summers. Scottish linen is lighter than Irish linen. Similarly, Japanese and French linen have unique characteristics and are genuinely liked and bought by many people around. These linen types are mostly used for tops, shirts, men suits and pants.
Linen is still not the favorite fabric of every designer when it comes to detailing, but even then it is in fashion; it is not lagging behind. Long skirts, coats and dresses with delicate embroidery and thread work look best on linen. Heavy embroidery and bead work take away natural charm of linen.
Linen fashion is much popular in neutral and lighter shades, because it is mostly worn in summers. White, beige and light brown are the colors that have gained high popularity in linen clothing. Some designers have tried to add brighter colored linen clothes to their fashion trends. Linen fabric is known for its exclusivity, trendiness and elegance. It has a natural shine that gives it that extra touch of glamour.

It’s time to step out of your comfort zone! Team up the latest designs of kurtis in different ways to set trends, rather than follow them! Besides, it’s a great way to wear your tunic tops again without repeating the same outfit!
Team With Dhoti Pants
Traditionally a men’s garment, dhotis are now worn and loved by women equally. With multiple pleats around the waist stretching to the thigh area dhoti pants are made to suit the comfortability of the wearer, without losing touch of the actual inspiration.
Stand Out With Cigarette Pants
Cigarette pants are slim fitted trousers with straight, narrow leg opening at the foot end. Also known as slim-fitted pants or pencil pants, cigarette pants are widely favoured by both men and women alike. Since a cigarette pant ends just at the ankle, it gives a very definite fashionable look when worn with Kurtis.
Wear Over Flowy Skirts
Long skirts are flowy, stylish and extremely comfortable. Available in fabric like cotton, crepe, khadi and other summer fabric, long skirts are normally ankle length or floor touching length. Though midi skirts are in trend now, for something to wear with Kurti the long ones are preferred. Skirts don’t just look good with tops and other western wear but look equally smashing with Kurtis.
The word ‘Pashmina’ comes from the Persian word ‘Pashmineh’ which means ‘made from Pashm’, and Pash means wool in Persian. The Iranians, who came to Kashmir via the Ladakh route, gave the fabric its name, ‘Pashmina’. Because of its unique softness and comforting warmth,
pashmina is also known as the diamond fabric and the soft gold of high Asia. Put simply, it is the finest, softest and warmest wool available anywhere.
Pashmina accessories are available in different range, from “scarf” to “wrap” or “stole” to full sized shawl and “Kurtis”. Pure pashmina is a rather gauzy, open weave, as the fibre cannot tolerate high tension. The most popular pashmina fabric is a 70% pashmina/30% silk blend, but 50/50 is also common. The 70/30 is tightly woven, has an elegant sheen and drapes nicely, but is still quite soft and light-weight.
