Bihar is the place where matka silk sarees, a form of conventional Indian saree, were first made. Since the silk is spun from the silkworms’ cocoons in clay pots, the name “Matka” is derived from the Hindi word for clay pot. The resulting fabric has a distinctive, natural appearance and a rougher texture than other kinds of silk.
Matka silk sarees often include silk and cotton in their construction, giving them a somewhat more relaxed and informal feel than pure silk sarees. They come in a range of colors and patterns, and frequently have elaborate stitching or embellishments.
These sarees are favored for their sturdiness and adaptability and are worn for both formal and informal situations. To complete and style a look, they can be worn with a variety of accessories, including jewelry, bags, and shoes.
